Albert Raurich heads this oddball tapas restaurant, and given that he spent 11 years at elBulli (the last 6 as head chef under Ferran Adrià), the restaurant had to have a twist. When he and Adrià ate their way through New York’s Chinatown on a visit, Raurich thought up dim sum tapas. Casa Camper thought it was great idea, and the “two sticks” launched in their hotel as homage to the chopsticks of Asian cuisine and the toothpicks of Spanish bar food. Dishes run the gamut from Chinese dumplings filled with Spanish prawns and Iberico pork belly to Japanese-style burgers with ginger, cucumber, and miso. Regulars swear by the combination of tempura vegetables with glasses of sherry.
