The chef Dani García announced today that on October 22, 2019 will close the restaurant that bears his name in Marbella (Málaga) and that he has just won the third Michelin star to take on the challenge of taking his "vision of gastronomy from Andalusia to all corners and audiences of the world. "
The 2019 will be the restaurant's last season, located in the Puente Romano hotel in Marbella, after having "reached the dream" of achieving the highest distinction in the Michelin Guide, as announced at a gala held on November 21 in Lisbon, thus becoming the first "triestrellado" of Malaga and the second of Andalusia, after Aponiente (El Puerto de Santa María, Cádiz).
"On October 22, 2019 will be the last service in his Marbella restaurant, after a season of retrospective character", focused precisely on Andalusian cuisine, announced today in a statement after a video broadcast on social networks, in which the Marbella chef he asks himself "what's next" to have achieved the dream of positioning his restaurant at the top of Spanish gastronomy.
"It has taken us twenty years to get here, years of suffering, of sorrow, of everything, but we have achieved it", he adds in the video recorded when he announced the decision of closure to his team, which he encouraged to join his new projects and he assured that this will "change their lives" because they will have a "goal a hundred thousand times greater than now".
With "314 days and 202 services" ahead, he assured that it is a decision "matured in time" and "taken from the heart", which will give way "at the beginning of a new cycle" in his career that drives him to the achievement of another of his dreams: "Take Andalusia to the greatest number of people through its cuisine, developing new formats that make it possible," the note adds.
It will do so with "more accessible for diners" proposals, which it has already explored with BiBo Andalusian Brasserie & Tapas, with venues in Marbella and Malaga, and Lobito de Mar, an open-air beach bar in its city in July 2017.
For now he has already announced that in February 2019 he will launch his latest project with Áreas for the Malaga airport, BiBO Flamenco Bar & Tapas, while continuing to work on opening a restaurant in the first luxury hotel that the Canadian chain Four Seasons will open in Spain next year, in Madrid, a new concept on the way between BiBo and its haute cuisine restaurant, already with an expiration date.
