11.10.17 Opening Date for Universo Santi Announced

The much anticipated restaurant, the only one in the world where all 45 members of staff are disabled in some way, will open on 26th October. It is situated in Jerez at the Finca El Altillo, former home of the founder of González Byass, and is surrounded by beautiful parkland, in some of which they will grow organic fruit and vegetables. The plan is to become a culinary reference point offering top level haute cuisine. It will also include schools of catering and gardening for the disabled. Antonio Flores, oenologist of González Byass, has been training staff in wine and there will, of course be a good list of Sherries. As to the cuisine, the idea is to follow the principles of the late great chef Santi Santamaría in using the best local produce and bringing out the best of its natural flavour without covering it up with extras and unnecessary technology.
