Salvador Dalí used to visit this restaurant, which nowadays focuses on modern, creative cooking.
They say that Salvador Dalí often met friends at Celler de ca la Teta, the restaurant in the Hotel Duran, and that it was one of his favourite spots. In fact, nowadays it's included on tourist routes around the places in Figueres that the painter once frequented. From the typical traditional tavern it was in Dalí's time, it's been transformed into a landmark restaurant for Catalan cuisine in the city. The Duran has known how to adapt to changing times with a modern, creative menu based on seasonal, local products. For instance, grilled slices of artichokes from the local town of Vilabertran, sea urchins au gratin with green apple, Cadaqués-style monkfish medallions with prawn and clams, and Sant Climent lamb shoulder roasted with potatoes and onions. They have a weekly menu that includes traditional dishes, such as rabbit with snails as well as more up-to-date fresh recipes, and also a tasting menu that changes with the seasons.
