“Catalan cooking is, and will be,
At alkimia, under the leadership of chef Jordi Vilà, our style of cooking digs deep into the past, present and future of Catalan gastronomy. Exploring the entire range of our culinary landscape, from the center to the margins, we are both grounded in tradition and open to embracing the most radical contemporary ideas.
When thinking about alkimia’s cooking, we always place value on the moment, that fleeting instant in which the secret of each dish is revealed.
Cooking is a journey, an expedition that can be undertaken in only one way: if you come to alkimia, you’ll always find Jordi Vilà cooking.
The first step in our cooking is to select the best product. We work with reliable suppliers from the land and the sea with whom our relationship (in most cases) dates back years. Hiko brings us squash; Jack provides our herbs and flowers; Aleixo sends us fish; and Michelle is a source for wild game.
We cook Catalan food. Most of the products we use come from Catalonia. We use them as naturally as possible, with a deep affection for the land and respect for animal life. But if we need something that’s a bit farther away, we go to France, Galicia or Andalusia to get it. The product dictates.
In the same space, you’ll also find alkostat. It’s a different kind of restaurant, one where Jordi Vilà and the alkimia team offer a menu that celebrates improvisation and freshness in meticulously prepared dishes and tapas designed to be shared and with bon vivants in mind.
On the alkostat menú are a range of proposals from which to choose, from baked macaroni to red mullet paella to string beans and potatoes and stuffed pig’s feet.
At alkostat, we lean toward day-to-day cuisine, the rich and deep exploration of Catalan tradition that defines the career of Jordi Vilà and the restaurant alkimia.
