Celebrity chef, Gastón Acurio, the “Ambassador of Peruvian cuisine”, will offer a vibrant dining experience at Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona from mid-April to October 2016. Chef Acurio will present authentic Peruvian dishes at the hotel’s two al fresco dining spaces: the rooftop terrace, Terrat, and relaxed urban oasis, Mimosa Garden.
A chef and entrepreneur dedicated to personal development, Gastón Acurio has won much admiration for his expressive cuisine. His Astrid y Gastón restaurant in Lima, Peru, is ranked third in Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015. Chef Acurio’s arrival in Barcelona reflects his close relationship with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group for whom he already manages La Mar restaurant at Mandarin Oriental, Miami.
Confirming Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona’s status as a culinary hotspot and one of the Catalan capital’s exceptional dining destinations, Acurio joins the hotel’s multi-Michelin starred Chefs, Carme Ruscalleda and her son, Räul Balam, who run fine dining restaurant, Moments, and “Chef of the Sea”, Ángel León, head of BistrEau.
Guests can enjoy Chef Acurio’s Peruvian cuisine at Mimosa Garden during the daytime and at Terrat from 8pm. With panoramic views over Barcelona, Terrat is a vibrant, cosmopolitan nightspot where guests can revel in cocktails, music and delicious food long into the night.
Two-Michelin Star Moments prepares traditional Catalan-inspired cuisine with a contemporary twist and some Japanese touches that combine to create a cosmopolitan experience for diners. BistrEau offers avant-garde seafood dishes inspired by the cooking of Aponiente, Ángel León’s two-Michelin star restaurant in El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz. In a new offer to diners, BistrEau is now providing three tasting menus of Chef León’s most personal creations, priced at €60, €90 and €120.
