"It Was Delicious While It Lasted" by Jay McInerney - VanityFair.com

I really dig Jay McInerney. For those of you not familiar, he was a hotshot author in the 80's who ran around Manhattan partying with celebrities and basically putting the city on its back. Check out Bright Lights, Big City if you want to know more. It's the only book written in the second person that's worth reading, with no due respect to Ayn Rand.

Here he profiles the Spanish restaurant El Bulli, which is closing down, and which has been pretty much unanimously considered the best restaurant in the world for as long as I've been reading about that kind of stuff. The chef, Ferran Adria, is considered a genius, and I'm pretty sure Anthony Bourdain would take a shot in the mouth from him and say thank you.

On that appetizing note, bon appetit:
