Mugaritz — one of Spain's most lauded restaurants — is (again) giving 10 lucky diners the chance to taste its new season of creations for 2016. For the past four months chef Andoni Luis Aduriz and his team have been working on a slew of new dishes. They plan to launch the new menu in the middle of next month. (See a few sneak peeks on the restaurant's Instagram page.)
But super fans, those with frequent flyer miles, and Spaniards that live within driving distance of the restaurant — which is located in San Sebastián — may be interested in trying to snag a free and exclusive early tasting experience. Beginning tomorrow the restaurant is opening up a raffle of sorts wherein 10 diners will win a free meal, to be served in advance of the restaurant's reopening.
Interested parties are encouraged to head to the restaurant's website beginning tomorrow at 10 a.m. GMT. and click on the link to "You open the doors of Mugaritz." Until April 6 five people (plus their dinner companions) will be able to apply for an exclusive spot at the preview table. The winners will be notified on April 7, and then will have just six days to plan travel and accommodations, which are not included with the winning dinner tickets.
International flights from the U.S. to San Sebastián start at $777 round trip. The price of the restaurant's 2015 menu was $207 USD per person, excluding beverages.
