Chef Marc Vidal’s first experience in the kitchen was at his family’s restaurant in Barcelona where his grandmother was the Chef. His experience influenced Marc to enroll in the Escola de Restauracio I Hostelatge de Barcelona at age sixteen. After graduation, Chef Vidal worked with some of the leading chefs of the world including Chef Carles Gaig, Chef Ferran Adria, and Chef Alain Passard. His deep personal roots in Catalan cuisine were formed and strengthened not only by his upbringing in a family restaurant but by his stage at the Maison de la Catalogne in Paris. Chef Vidal has served as Executive chef at the Hotel Torre Catalunya, Por Fin in Miami and Solea at the W in South Beach where he earned the restaurant a James Beard Semifinalist nomination for Best New Restaurant. In 2010 Marc joined the Boqueria team as Executive Chef where he contributes his wealth of experience, culinary talent and passion for the cuisine of his homeland.
