Miramar is the reflection of a family’s dream, a professional project that dates back to the year 1939, when it was just a humble beach hostel in Llançà (Girona). That was until 1984, when Paco Pérez married its owner and, together, they created the two-Michelin star restaurant it is known for today.
It’s a place of pilgrimage for gourmet enthusiasts from around the world that stands out due to the contemporary and vanguard cuisine based on excellence and the experience of travelling to Alt Empordà and discovering its cuisine and atmosphere for which it also has 5 exclusive rooms.
After discovering Neolith® and how it could be used, Paco Pérez decided to use their Sintered Stone for the Miramar pastry area. Architect Anna Sabrià was commissioned with creating this area with an open-view so diners could enjoy the show of seeing what it’s like to work in a Michelin star restaurant.
Neolith® was chosen for different uses due to its technical characteristics and broad chromatic range to create a functional yet attractive space. In the chef’s words, "Neolith® is very hygienic, very durable, doesn’t scratch, you can hit it and it doesn’t break (...) Plus, there’s great diversity and a range of hues. It’s a very interesting product for kitchens.”
The colors chosen for this very special space were the Nero models for countertops and shelving as well as the Nero Marquina model for the pastry area flooring. And Neolith® Avoriowas used for the walls and even the ceilings of this lovely kitchen with views of the sea where the chef transforms the aromas, flavors and textures.
“Neolith offers the kitchen significant reliability,” says Paco Pérez, one of the greatest examples of 21st century vanguard gastronomy.
