Catalan chef Jordi Cruz wins new Michelin star
Restaurants awarded include Angle, Aürt, Deliranto, and Cinc Sentits
Jordi Cruz was the big winner among Catalan chefs at the Michelin stars ceremony on Wednesday night.
Not only did Cruz retain the top three stars for his celebrated ÀBaC restaurant, in Barcelona, but also won a second star for the Angle restaurant, also located in the Catalan capital.
The Michelin guide recognized Angle as a place offering "high cuisine for daily consumption." The restaurant defines itself as "mixing tradition with modernity."
The list of Catalan restaurants that won their first Michelin star include Artur Martínez’s Aürt, in Barcelona, and Josep Moreno’s Deliranto, in the seaside town of Salou.
The Cinc Sentits restaurant, a project by chef Jordi Artal, reclaimed the Michelin star it lost after it changed its location.
Three restaurants lost the Michelin stars awarded in the previous edition: La Barra de Carles Abellán, in Barcelona, as well as Els Brancs, in Roses, and Terra, in S’agaró, both of them located on the Northern Costa Brava coast.
Apart from Cruz’s ÀBaC, two other restaurants in Catalonia maintain the top three-star distinction: Lasarte and El Celler de Can Roca.
