I had dinner on two evenings last year at El Raco. El Bulli was closed during this time so El Raco was actually an alternative. Having said this the three Michelin star restaurant turned out to be the best meal of mine and my wife's life (over 20 two and three Michelin starred restaurants) as well as for the six of us that returned four nights later. I am curious to how the two restaurants compare. I realize that the style of El Bulli is totally unique and "experimental" but I will be going back to Barcelona soon and am predisposed to go back to El Raco because I liked it so much.
Also has anyone been to Al Sorriso in northern Italy?
