Spanish chef Sergio Barroso is part of a new wave of chefs in Chile who take inspiration from around the world while mining the country’s own rich culinary history.

Chef Barroso was born in Madrid, worked at El Bulli and at Denis Martin in Switzerland. Restaurant 040 opened in 2015. The food is inventive, technically accomplished dishes that are strongly influenced by molecular gastronomy.

Most everything is one bit. No flatware is on the table instead is your own bowl of lemon water for your fingers.
