Juanen Benavent ha labrado una productiva carrera profesional entre fogones. Y eso que solo tiene 34 años. Ha pasado por su Valencia natal (El Submarino, Alto de Colón, Hotel Hospes), por Can Fabes, que fue tres estrellas MICHELIN, y antes de instalarse en Barcelona, ha estado cuatro años en París en Goust, donde donde refinó su estilo como jefe de cocina. El resultado de todo lo aprendido, ya maduro, se puede comprobar en su nuevo proyecto: Saó, que precisamente en catalán significa punto óptimo de madurez.

Está en la zona alta de Barcelona, en una casita del barrio de Gràcia, en una zona muy tranquila, cerca de la ronda de Dalt. Un espacio agradable con dos salones y grandes ventanales donde degustar platos mediterráneos elaborados con productos de kilómetro 0 y presentados de una manera muy elegante. Benavent demuestra, además, que sabe cómo tratar la materia prima en unas cocciones perfectas y en unas combinaciones de sabores sorprendentes, como la ostra sobre lentejas caviar y puré de coliflor. Los ingredientes perfectamente seleccionados y sin fuegos artificiales, producto y técnica. No hay carta, sino tres menús que elabora con productos frescos y de temporada. El de mediodías laborables, llamado Llavor; y los otros dos, Germinat y Arrels, que podrás degustar siempre.

INSIDER tip

Cuando llegues, verás una cajita sobre la mesa. Ábrela: son los menús que puedes elegir.
