The World's "Best Restaurant" closed for good last weekend. Despite being packed to the gills every night, and just about impossible to get a reservation, the place closed, as announced several months ago by Mr. Adria.

The claim is that in spite of doing maximum patronage the place is losing 700,000E per year. He makes up for it by selling books, he says. Hmmm....

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Wow, it must be a long, hot, boring summer when elementary school is out and your folks didn't send you away...

How about some name-calling to round things out?

What happened, none of the elitists and cliques here had any interest in the elitist-loving El Bulli?

I don't know why I feel I compelled to explain that I was making fun of M. Wells Diner, not El Bulli.

I was making fun of Umbria and eating pets but I'm not quite sure how.
