The brothers Roca: Joan, Josep and Jordi

As reported by the Evening Standard, the Girona restaurant run by brothers Joan, Josep and Jordi Roca, will take up residence at the Hotel Café Royal in Piccadilly from 2-5 August.


Food will be served at the Domino restaurant

The restaurant, which was toppled from the top sport of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list this year by Massimo Botura’s Osteria Francescana in Modena, will pop up in a number of cities around the world this summer.

The Roca brothers will lead the kitchen at the pop-up in the hotel’s Domino restautant and are bringing most of the El Celler de Can Roca team with them in order to recreate the experience of dining at the 3 Michelin star restaurant.

The menu will include signature dishes from the restaurant alongside a number of new dishes inspired by London and made using local seasonal produce.

The tour is part of a promotional initiative by Spanish financial services company BBVA and tickets are only being offered only to invited guests.

Joan and Josep opened El Celler de Can Roca in 1986, which won its first Michelin star in 1995, second in 2002 and third in 2009.

Among the dishes on its tasting menu are Iberian suckling pig and charcoal-grilled king prawn with ink rocks, fried legs, head juice and king prawn essence.

Earlier this year Ferran Adrià’s brother Albert hosted a 50-day pop-up of his popular Barcelona tapas bar Tickets at the Café Royal with dinner and drinks priced at £150 a pop.
