Sergi Peris Gastronòmic

To say that Chef Sergi Peris is driven, is an understatement.  At the ripe age of 25, his resume already includes 3 Michelin restaurants including Jordi Cruz‘s ABaC, consulting projects in Brazil and Columbia, and of course, now his very own namesake restaurant, Gastronòmic.  His youth is not only remarkable, but perhaps his biggest asset, as he dismisses the typical pressures of a rising star, and chooses to simply “make the food that (he) likes.”

Chef Sergi Peris, age 25

Often driven by the availability of seasonal ingredients, the menu at Gastronòmic changes daily. During our visit, we loved courageous dishes like Cocochas, the fatty chin of Cod served with a sauce of sea urchin, and Carpaccio of Red Shrimp, served paper thin in olive oil, sea salt and edible flowers.  The more familiar seared duck breast with apple and mango sauce provided a brighter, Mediterranean twist on the flavors of Fall.

Be advised, Peris is something of a magician when it comes to the dessert course, so leave room!  His creations are not only tasty, but often works of art.  El Fuete or “the whip” in English, is a chocolate and toffee candy bar disguised as cured sausage…yes, you read that right.  The picture perfect, L’ou del corral or “Egg in the Chicken Coop”, is a delicate white candy egg, filled with fluffy coconut mouse and a decadent mango sauce.   To eat it, the diner must crack the candy shell with a spoon, releasing the runny “yolk” into it’s shallow bowl.  Who doesn’t like cracking eggs at the dinner table?

Get here while you still can.  Our instincts tell us this guy is going places.
