Regarded internationally as one of the finest restaurants in the world (officially coming in at number three this year, according to Restaurant Magazine's ratings), Mugaritz is known for being impossibly hard to get into. So we are excited to share that the restaurant has decided to offer a preview of the new menu to 12 diners (or six reservations for two) free of charge. All you have to do is sign up at the Mugaritz web site before April 11 to be entered into the reservation lottery.
The restaurant, which is located in Errenteria, Spain, is owned and operated by legendary Spanish chef Andoni Luis Aduriz, who apprenticed at elBulli and is known for his innovative, ultra-technical approach to cuisine. The winners of the lottery will enjoy a 20-course lunch of dishes that will be part of the spring 2012 menu at Mugaritz.
Check out the video below to see Aduriz's official announcement of the concept and then head right over to the restaurant's web site. The lunch will take place April 17 and the new season at the restaurant officially kicks off the following day.
