Ferran Adria's famed El Bulli restaurant closed in 2011, but its experimental culinary spirit lives on in this haute Barcelona shop, which was cofounded by his brother Albert. Traditional truffles and tablets share aisle space with out-of-this-world offerings like sachets of fried corn with bitter chocolate, and bars flavored with Parma ham, anchovies and hazelnuts, and Modena vinegar. Prolong the heavenly experience by ordering churros and chocolate or a dark chocolate raspberry gelato in the back seating area. There are also branches in Tokyo, Lisbon, Madrid, Dubai and other cities.
