Ricard Camarena reopens his eponymous restaurant with two Michelin stars

Ricard Camarena Restaurant, with two Michelin stars and three Repsol soles, will reopen its doors in Valencia next Saturday night, with a gastronomic "new experience" in which customers will be able to dine on the landscaped terrace that the restaurant has, located in the Bombas Gens – Center d'Art complex.

This restaurant will use a space that until now had hardly been made available to customers, such as the terrace, Camarena said in a statement posted on her social networks where she adds: "The pandemic does not force you to reinvent yourself, but it does adapt to the new circumstances. "

During Phase 1 of de-escalation in which València is located -and will continue for at least one more week- it is possible to offer the terrace to customers, something that the Valencian chef "really wants".

Ricard Camarena Restaurant will reopen, they point out from the business, with all the hygienic-sanitary guarantees to preserve the health of both diners and the team that will work every night from Tuesday to Saturday in the restaurant.

"We are aware of the seriousness of the current situation and, to the food safety and hygiene protocols that we have been applying, we are going to add all the necessary measures so that people come to enjoy themselves," Camarena explained.

The decision to reopen has been made "after calm reflection" and it is time because the team is "really looking forward" after being without work for two months, and it is also "the best way to help" its employees to overcome "this Delicate situation".

For Camarena, the reopening will serve to "start the road to try to put València back on tourist routes", since in his opinion "the city needs services at its height" and with this return they intend "to help reactivate the sector tourist, so necessary for the economy. "

And the menus, he adds, "will be very close to the territory, to the produce of the garden and proximity" because it is in their DNA, especially many local vegetables.

The Valencian chef decided to close all his restaurants (this one along with Habitual, Canalla Bistró -which is also based in Madrid-, CocaLoka and Central Bar- on March 13, a few hours before the Government decreed the state of alarm.

"At that time we did it out of a matter of responsibility with our team, customers and suppliers," he recalls.
