World renowned chef Ferran Adrià, whose whimsical food inspired a generation of chefs, has decided to close his restaurant for good. After next year, the Spanish eatery will close its doors. In 2014, it will reopen as a non-profit foundation. "It has been the love of the people that made us decide we should become a foundation," Adrià told The Guardian. "This is really a question of popular demand." Last month, the Spaniard shocked gourmands worldwide with the announcement that the restaurant would close for two years while he considered his options. "The spirit of El Bulli will be even stronger and will live on forever," he said.
