Despite the fact that these weeks of lockdown have been difficult for everyone, I have to admit that I have been able to extract one positive thing: I have had TIME. Time to look, smell, listen and taste. Also for reading, doing handicrafts, cooking, walking, participating in video conferences, relaxing… And now I have a new challenge: to start again, restart, and, of course, reinvent ourselves.

It has been three months and, in my opinion, the world and I have changed a little bit. You made me reflect on the effort that this mandatory stop has taken. Mothers and fathers, grandparents, doctors, teachers, caregivers and everyone that have been  working: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Now it is your turn to enjoy life a little, and it is up to me to give what I have always said: “Happiness at the table.” We need to help each other and I will try my best: cooking and serving the customers.

The whole team of the El Cairat restaurant is waiting for you with news.

See you soon,
