 A visceral cooking, with no time and no rules. A concept in which taste, creativity, the visual presentation of the dishes and the combination of spices and foods stand out; depending on the moment's inspiration. A real author's cuisine. A neutral place which turns "chameleonic", since it gets a different personality every night when it wears the color of its guests, with their wide range of identities and their own sounds. The food prepared is different every day as there are no fixed menu items; it depends on the raw materials chosen and the chef's mood swings. Each night at this wonderful place will be unique and unrepeatable - guaranteed!
