Fresh off an April trip to Spain, chef José Andrés is bemused when a reporter asks if he enjoyed his vacation.
“Vacation? No, it was not a vacation. I created two concepts based on my time in Spain,” said Andrés, matter-of-factly. The president of ThinkFoodGroup, a high-end multiconcept restaurant firm in Washington, D.C., Andrés said if he’s awake, he’s absorbing inspiration for new restaurants.
