First post here, so hello to all. Having lurked for a while, I thought it was time to break my silence to share my good news: I received an email this morning from Luis Garcia at El Bulli confirming a table in April 2006. I'm absolutely stunned, and totally delighted.
I had read a lot about El Bulli, so I went to their website back in October, and sent a short email on October 13th requesting a table for 2 on either April 27th, 28th or 29th. I then read some forums (both here and on eGullet) and realised that it was *highly* unlikely anything would come of it, since many people have been trying for years to get a table, and will accept any date in the year. I had only offered them a choice of three dates, and it was my first time even attempting to get a table! Imagine my surprise when I got the email this morning...
I'm especially pleased since the day we have secured (the 27th) is actually my girlfriend's birthday. What a way to celebrate!
So, am I incredibly lucky or what?
