César Anca, one of the most renowned and respected chefs in Alicante, Spain, is back in the neighborhood where he was born with a new and stylish restaurant design. This project reveals his passion for Alicante, the city where he has managed his own restaurants for 20 years and that has helped him grow personally and professionally.
The Chef entrusted this mission to the interior design studio estudiHac to realize his new culinary project in the capital city.
Xanverí is much more than just a restaurant. It is a culinary proposal in a space filled with tradition and design. The history of the neighborhood, its origin, and its architecture are the common circumstances that inspired José Manuel Ferrero, creative director of estudiHac to design and make this a stunning modern restaurant.
“Chamberí is the quintessential neighborhood. It is the heart of the city –rich in history, culture, and architecture. This is where we find the essence to choose textures, colors, and geometric shapes. We take the elements in Chamberí and bring them to the present. That is our strategy. We create a modern, elegant and contemporary style. It will be the avant-garde restaurant in the city –a place to enjoy a sophisticated, high-end atmosphere”. says José Manuel Ferrero.
The textures are perfectly harmonized with light touches of the Mediterranean and they also have a spicy but modern touch –the Castizo spark.
