Sergio Musso and Francesc Chicón
Eclèctic Restaurant which opened earlier this year is located in the Sant Gervasi neighbourhood within the space formerly occupied by La Mifanera. A highly personal culinary project put together by two chefs who are dedicated world travellers, Sergio Musso and Francesc Chicón. The former trained as a chef in Argentina and is a specialist in pastry and desserts. He is also a professional magician, a skill that combines surprisingly well with gastronomy and has allowed him to travel the world. Francesc Chicón has worked in several well known restaurants after training at the Hofman School in Barcelona, born in Catalonia his family roots are from Andalusia. Chicón is also a teacher and has published a gastronomic blog for a number of years.
“Our cooking combines the classic and the modern, nouvelle cuisine with the avant-garde, local dishes with exotic dishes from far off countries, expressing our own take of understanding food, of living and experiencing food.”
Eclèctic Restaurant defines itself through its name and its setting. The restaurant has been conceived, designed and brought to fruition by chefs Sergio Musso and Francesc Chicón, bringing together the best of multiple disciplines, in terms of the food and the design, inspired by the concept of homemade and Nordic style. All down to the vision and philosophy of the owners who have created an open-minded gastronomic experience here.

Eclèctic offers its diners a range of flavours, textures, ingredients, cooking techniques and unusual dishes but which nonetheless are in harmony with one another. The idea is to bring out the essence of the raw materials, but rather to bring out the best in them. The desserts deserves a special mention. Illusionists and magical desserts, at the same time light and healthy. The menu is adapted four times over the year to reflect the changing seasonal products.
