When the internationally known and renowned restaurateur Carme Ruscalleda closed her three-star restaurant Sant Pau in Sant Pol de Mar, Maresme, Catalonia and the world lost a first-rate gastronomic reference. Now, and as reported Cristina Jolonch in La Vanguardia on March 17th, Ruscalleda’s son, Raül Balam Ruscalleda and his partner Murillo Alves Rodrigues, will reopen it the first week of June with the name of Cuina Sant Pau.
This is an extraordinary new for Maresme region and for all three-star food lovers. Four years after its closure, and although his parents offered him and his sister Mercè, taking over the business has not been decided until now.
Mercè opened with her partner, Albert Rovira, El Jardí del Sant Pau, a bar with good sandwiches that works successfully in the parking lot and the garden of Sant Pau. The brothers have already said that there will be synergies between the two places, for example making an appetizer before eating or having coffee after.
