It’s hard to imagine a more immersive environment than the one that LEKU’s culinary team, headed by Carlos Garcia, has created at the elegant restaurant at the Rubell Museum which celebrates the Basque region’s cuisine in all of its gastronomic glory. Despite the restaurant’s contemporary, Miami-chic design, Garcia's dishes are so deeply rooted in the flavors and techniques of the Basque region, you could close your eyes and swear that you were sitting amongst the mountain ranges of Northern Spain. For this once-in-a-lifetime SOBEWFF® dinner, he’s invited Chef David Romero – Executive Chef of the 5-star Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona and one of the great modern culinary interpreters of Catalan cuisine – to curate an exceptional menu that respects the area’s ingredients which, as Chef Romero notes, “can be blended, but never hidden.” These two virtuosic artists – both headliners in their own right – will each reveal a profoundly personal approach to their region’s classics, insisting that you both see and taste the splendor of Northern Spain just as they do.
