Exiample
Catalan Fine Dining

One of the most famous chefs in Spain, Carme Ruscalleda, manages Mandarin Oriental’s Moments along with her son Raül Balam. The Michelin two-star restaurant is Catalan food at its most indulgent: Tasting menus include five appetizers, five main courses, five cheeses, a dessert, and petits fours; dishes might include Challans duck with avocado, persimmon, cocoa, and papaya or wild sea bass with pumpkin. The chef’s table, tucked away from the golden-and amber-hued dining room and featuring a great view of the kitchen, offers the ultimate in gastronomic immersion and privacy.
