I'm so bummed. I never do anything this goofy for a restaurant reservation, but I've been fascinated by Ferran Adria for so long, I figured it was worth it.
I read all the "tutorials," did a "dry run" earlier in the week, and at the stroke of midnight in Spain and well after, "May 21" never turned black on the calendar. So either something is screwy with the reservations system or they're closed that day. I'm not interested in 41 degrees mainly due to wanting to keep it under 200 Euros total.
Based on the reviews I read here and elsewhere, I was attracted by being able to put ourselves in the hands of the server, being able to give a budget max, the "fun" aspect of it, and, of course eating Adria's food (even if he's not actually cooking it).
Did I mention I was bummed? I'm this close to whining, actually (not really).
