The 33 most expensive restaurants in the world. The first in Ibiza, for Italy? Beck and BotturaT


When considering a restaurant, there are no doubt the quality / price ratio among the main parameters. But what do you mean by this definition? Eating well, choosing healthy ingredients, sought after and carefully crafted authoritative dishes requires an inevitable economic investment. In some restaurants, the final bill can become very expensive, depending on location, location, room expenses, and of course the proposed offer. The British site Insider has produced a ranking of the world’s 33 most expensive restaurants, from Modena to New York, taking into account the tasting menus available. The calculation was made considering the price (in dollars) of a meal for two people, including a wine combination where possible, and excluding any taxes.


It is the Sublimotion of the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza to earn first place for the salty account of the world: managed by chef Paco Roncero, the venue opens only for 12 people at a time. Lucky Customers can enjoy a unique sensory experience thanks to images, projections, music and light games, immersed in a different environment for every serving served, with an atmosphere that changes from time to time through the screens that cover the room and table. From dessert cocktails, the 13-person tasting trip for two people costs $ 3,266. Follows the chef Paul Pairet’s ultraviolet in Shanghai, with a 20-course menu for $ 1,742 for two. Third place for the New York restaurant led by chef Masa Takayama, a sushi expert who offers the best Japanese cuisine in the whole of America for $ 1.190 for two, for a total of 20-25 dishes.


The last place is in our 33rd place our Massimo Bottura (but not the only Italian), which at the Franciscan Osteria – the second best restaurant in the world for the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and the first Italian restaurant according to Gambero Rosso – proposes a nine-course menu to “just” $ 478 for two, about 412 euros. A fairly sober price compared to non-European colleagues. With $ 490, the second-highest post among the least expensive is Quay’s Australian chef Peter Gilmore, who shares his former position with Tim Cushman of OYa, a famous Japanese restaurant in New York. The other Italian venue to enter the ranking is La Pergola in Rome, the creature of Heinz Beck where you can taste 10 different dishes at a price of $ 526 for two people, a cost that guarantees the German chef now Italians to earn 27th place ‘list. For the UK, however, in 22nd place is the Heston Blumenthal Dinner, with an 8-course menu at $ 576. Next goes to number 21, one of the best restaurant in the world, Eleven Madison Park in New York, where Daniel Humm’s sophisticated kitchen is worth $ 590 for 11 dishes per head. In Paris, however, GuySavoy is the most expensive restaurant in the city, sixth in the world with its 11-course menu to $ 860 for two. A lower step, in seventh position, Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athenee ($ 848 for 5 courses), and again in Paris, eighth place, Alain Passard’s Arpège with a $ 848 12-course menu.

MTV EMA 2017: David Guetta’s free show at Trafalgar Square

MTV Music Week will end with a unique and unmissable event: a totally free show by David Guetta at Trafalgar Square.

The show will be televised later

Saturday November 11, 2017: mark this date. Whether you are in London or you are going to go for this all-music weekend this week, you could attend a spectacular event. David Guetta has decided to give London fans a free show, which will take place in one of the most important squares of the city. The performance of the French dj will also be taken from the MTV cameras, to be later transmitted in the special for the MTV World Stage concerts. David Guetta will also be one of the protagonists of the MTV EMA 2017 on Sunday, November 12, at the SSE Arena in Wembley. On the occasion of the evening, the dj will premiere the world’s new single “Dirty Sexy Money”, made with Afrojack, Charli XCX and French Montana. The evening of the MTV European Music Awards will be broadcast live on November 21, 12th, on MTV (Sky 133 channel) and Comedy Central (Sky 124 channel) in the original language. You can still rate your favorite artist through the MTV site. On Saturday, November 11 there will be another event at Trafalgar Square: the U2 concert, awarded with the Global Icon Award. The Irish band wanted to thank fans with a completely free show that will be broadcast in part during the awards ceremony.


David Guetta has just been 50 years old, 30 of whom have gone to the service of electronic music. His credit for having danced around the planet with hits like “This one’s for you”, “Love is gone” or “When love takes over”. Today, French born Guetta, is one of the most popular and appreciated DJs around the world, plus one of the most sought after. In addition to playing and performing everywhere, he is a dj resident at Pacha and Usaua in Ibiza. Its Facebook page counts up to today almost 54 million fans. While attending crowded and fun places such as nightclubs and nightclubs, David Guetta follows a very regular life, so that in an interview he defined himself as “a Jedi monk: I do not drink, I do not smoke and I do not drink. I do sports and I follow a diet ». In thirty years of career, the DJ and producer worked with artists such as Madonna, Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kylie Minogue, Sia, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber just to name a few. The extraordinary ability to anticipate fashion and musical trends has always been a guru. As he said in an interview: “The difficult thing is not to know what works in the present but to imagine what people will love next year or in two to three years. This is what I always do and try to capture: the sound of the future. I do not know how to do it, I do, I feel what I might like. “

The museum of objects that failed

From Apples Newton to Colgate’s Lasagna, the road to industrial progress is paved with failures. So the Museum of Failure was born

Failure is also an art. If you do not believe it, try asking the gurus of our time, better if you are on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, and you will have the usual answer: “Falling is the first step to succeed.” A phrase has become a motto for the great mass of startup founders, but we tend to attack you with a difficult label then delete it, but this is another story.

For Samuel West, a Swedish psychologist, bankruptcy is the necessary step to make improvements to our lives. “Success is always the same, bankruptcy is unique,” says the fan of innovation that has collected more than sixty items, gadgets and devices announced as revolutionaries and passed on to history as fluttering flop. A series of holes in the water that sank the image of big multinational corporations and portfolios of small companies ready to make profits and instead disappeared from the market.

Just to allow people to “learn from the failures of others,” the lordly gentleman will exhibit his collection starting June 7 when he opens the “Museum of Failure” in Helsinborg, south of Sweden.

The idea is to show how anyone can go wrong, so the opportunity to fail should be conceived as an option to accept, both for individuals and for companies. “Bankruptcy is Progress,” is the message that filters from West’s find. Confirming the conviction has put together the worst thinking of the last thirty years in a pile of flops that includes high-profile names such as Apple and Coca Cola and unfortunate intuitions such as the Twitter Peek soon passed to a better life.

The first rule is that everyone is wrong, including giants, so that one of West’s pearls is the Newton, the palm-wrench with Apple’s ninette remembered as one of the lowest points in the company. There are then experiments that define azzardati is euphemistic, such as the lasagna on the Colgate ragù, noteworthy in the world not just for food; Inevitable, then, that frozen pasta was soon forgotten. From everyone.

In the error network, Coca Cola is over, and twice! Prior to pointing to Coca-Cola, the desire to diversify the drink produced Coke II, of which no trace, and the Coca-Cola Blàk with a coffee flavor, commercially between 2006 and 2008 before retiring. Strong with a total domain of handsets, Nokia tried the big hit with N’Gage, which in corporate minds would have been the most portable console of the universe, but which instead turned out to be a jumble good only to squeeze the budget Of the Finnish house.

That script followed Blockbuster, an invincible chain for years before falling into disgrace under the blows of streaming content and bankruptcy projects such as a rental DVD for a week, a boomerang avoidable and thought to digest.

The inability to predict future horizons was the cause of Kodak’s disintegration, the brand-name excellence overwhelmed by digital adventures, while the company was still thinking of the brain in the past. One demonstration was the Digital Camera D40, anchored to the analogue press, which only now after years of social sharing is knowing a new interest. Conversely, blind confidence in progress has been a joke to Sergei Brin and Larry Page, far ahead with Google Glass, cumbersome and ineffective to meet the ambition of the creators (as opposed to Snapchat glasses, focusing only on On photography and video and for this reason they have for now been very welcome by consumers).

Celebrating gentle sex is always a good and just thing, doing it with an ad hoc production that, unlike zero, is twice the standard price, is not the best business card. For information, ask Bic, where there is a live flop of women’s pens (Bic for Her). Harley-Davidson’s fragrance is also hard to comment, while still wondering what went on to the Twitter Peek producers, the device that was just twitched in a world where smartphones were already dominant. And the good thing is that on Amazon you can still buy it.

Speaking of errors and horrors could be missing Donald Trump? Of course not, because among the many attempts to profit the current US president invented TRUMP, The Game, and then the Vodka Trump. An absolute genius, regardless of the actual sales of the above mentioned findings.

Inter or Verona? Luciano Marangon has already made his choice: Ibiza!

From the Scudetto with Hellas to the transfer to Nerazzurro, and then completely change life: the story of Luciano Marangon

At the cold of Autumn in Triveneto, the former Treviso football player has long preferred the sun of Ibiza, realizing the dream of many Italians who, during the holidays, fantasize about opening up activities at the resorts.

Ibiza, a paradise for fun, is well-suited to the character of Luciano Maragon, who also refused to deny any pleasurable pastimes as a footballer. His adventures from authentic playboy are part of the mythology of football gossip … and it’s not just rumors. In an epic interview with “Libero”, former Inter confessed: “I also had sex with seven women together. I also did it on Sunday morning, it was my doping. ”

Raised in juvenile Juventus, Marangon had the courage to rebel against Boniperti who wanted to loan him to Catanzaro and was handed over to Lanerossi Vicenza. In white-collar he debuted in Serie A, crossing Paolo Rossi’s path and contributing to the second-place historian of the 1977/78 championship.

After the collapse of Vicenza, relegated to Serie B, Marangon has been in for a season in Rino Marchesi’s Naples, winning another good position: the third behind Juve and Rome. Just the giallorossi bought it during the summer, but also in the capital had to settle for the third place, behind the usual Juve and this time, Fiorentina.

In April 1982 he made his national debut against East Germany, but his only blue appearance remained: closed by Cabrini in the role of left-back, he was not even summoned for the Mundial in Spain and Bearzot did not take it anymore into account.

In the summer of 1982 he moved to Verona. With the Hella shirt he played for three seasons, collecting a quarter and a sixth place, before the historic Gialloblu championship of the 1984/85 championship. Osvaldo Bagnoli was also his brother Fabio, six years younger.

After that epic affirmation, both Marangon and Pietro Fanna were bought by Inter, in search of relaunch. Paid three billion lire, the left-handed exterior has, however, made some effort to settle in nerazzurri. 19 appearances in the first year and just three in the second, due to a serious injury. In 1987, taking note of the situation, Marangon demanded that he be given to Tottenham and, in the face of President Pellegrini’s rejection, hung his shoes on the nail before he was 31 years old.

What’s in the life of a professional footballer when you turn off the lights?

Everyone takes his road and Marangon’s was really amazing.

BLOOP Festival turned Ibiza into an open gallery

Not just music and festivals: every year the Balearic Island attracts artists of different disciplines to interpret the theme of change through architectural interventions, interactive installations, workshops and video games

It’s not easy to change the name of a place, especially one like Ibiza, known by all as the perfect destination – in summer, but not only – for the best dj-sets, place-to-be and night clubs on its beaches dancing until the coming of the new day. Thanks to the BLOOP International Proactive Art Festival, one of the coolest Mediterranean destinations can be considered as a real open-air gallery thanks to the extraordinary and gigantic street art works that are populating it.

With the name of OpenAir.Gallery, the project was born with a single mural in 2011 and over the years the collection has enriched the contributions of artists from all over the world such as David de la Mano & Pablo S Herrero, B-Toy, Ara, Bisser, Cuellimangui, Sabotaje to Montaje and many others. This year’s edition, the seventh, has been concluded for a few days and with the participation of Ino and Spaik it has been confirmed as an artistic and social appointment to be included in the calendar.

From the small town on the west coast of Sant’Antoni – to name the Cafè del Mar and one of the best sunsets in the Mediterranean – this year the festival moved its headquarters to the historic center of Evissa, inviting artists from different disciplines to interpret the “changes” theme, to record the changes of contemporary society, from values, to lifestyles, to politics, technology and the environment.

Architecture and design, street art, virtual reality, video mapping and interactive installations, workshops, video games, exhibitions and music: At BLOOP Festival, art is proactive and can be the perfect vehicle for retraining urban spaces and giving new lymph to tourism.

In the expectation of the next summer edition, you can follow some of the design exhibitions that from Ibiza move first to the Design Week in London and in April 2018 at Design Week in Milan.

“DJs ruined the night of Ibiza”

Ricardo Urgell is the incarnation of the “isla”: he has recently sold the Pacha group – 50 years old – for 350 million euros but has clear ideas for the future and much to say about the past


50 YEARS FROM “PACHA” The name was an idea of ​​Urgell’s first wife: “Call it Pacha and you will live by it.” So it was: in these pages, photographs of Hotel Pacha and Urgell’s office within the “payesa house” that deals with club and restaurant. In a detail, the formidable volume “El Baile”, the 25th anniversary celebration of the group, just 25 years ago
Crossing the cape island – including its two “ultra-marine” propaganda: on the one side, the 382 m altitude of Es Vedrà, the rocky tooth wrapped in the myth of the third most polar magnetic pole on the planet; on the other, Tagomago, the private island favorite of rock stars and footballers (Cristiano Ronaldo usually rent it, Gareth Bale chose to declare himself to his future wife) – they perceive the aesthetic motives that led the island to be contended for hundreds of years. Ibiza was born Phoenician, like Ibusim, in the 7th century BC, then became Roman, vandalized, Byzantine, Saracen (Yebisah) and finally Catalan under the name Eivissa, before the Catalan banning of the caudillo Francisco Franco it would pass on to the present statement. The primal nature of the island is well visible from the first portrayal of god Bes, an Egyptian masculine goddess depicted as cheerful and stubborn, sometimes obstinate in his genitals, always dancing.


It is an island of singular beauty even in the Mediterranean context, with cascades and coves that open suddenly after woods and pine forests, with a deep field alternating with ancient masses and crystallized villages over time. It is also an island that has known the blackest misery: not even half a century ago, ibizenchi were considered little more than muertos de hambre not only in the Iberian continent but also in the nearby Majorca, then the undisputed Queen of the Balears.
Things have changed, though it is true that Ibiza is now simply the most fashionable place in the world and one of the most expensive: and last year’s record-breaking tourist season was followed by the richer one this year. Yet today’s business successes are based on a strange yesterday’s migratory spirit, when a handful of “unadorned” unknowingly chose it as a free alternative port, adding its name to the grand tour hippie that already included San Francisco, Kathmandu, Amsterdam and Goa.

That was the basis of the island’s wealth: the people, the people who chose her when nobody chose her. Los pioneros call them here, and if the summer 2017 saw the disappearance of a pillar of the “first” group, Angel Nieto, the great motorcycle champion, nobody more than Ricardo Urgell incarnates the island of the beginning, the borders of the old town was all over.
Urgell, Barcelona and family born, arrived in Ibiza in 1968 after opening the first Pacha disco in Sitges in 1967. In the year of the 50th anniversary of the Pacha brand, Urgell decided to sell 90 percent of the group for a figure of around 350 million euros. We meet him in his historic office, within the same mass which also occupy the club and the restaurant. Behind the desk stands an immense black and white of Pacha Ibiza at the time of its opening: a white spot lost in the meadows, in front of the sea.
“There is an Ibiza that has nothing to do with the common and popular Ibiza whose image is sold in the world. The vulgarity of today’s millionaires, summed up with the superhuman growth the island has been subjected to and a certain general mediocrity in Spanish culture, has meant that the show is now not the best. This was a lost world, a wonder. When I arrived without a penny in 1968, Pacha had no phone, water was carrying her with tanks, and everyone had watched the bankruptcy because, to come to me, she would have to take the car, an absurdity for those days. “

Michael Fassbender, in the movie with “The Snowman”, is enigmatic as the characters he plays. And skilled in glossing on private questions. Species those about a certain colleague

Michael Fassbender has a magnetic and mysterious air that is well suited to the roles he chooses on the big screen: tormented men like Shame’s sex sufferer, Hunger’s Activist, and now Harry Lole’s alcoholic detective Harry Hole ‘snowman, drawn from Jo Nesbø’s bestseller. “Maybe I’m a complicated person!” Laughs the Irish actor of German origins, trying to explain the interest for these characters. Meeting him in London and in front of a tea (he does not drink coffee) tells me that this is his sabbatical year. “I just finished running X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but for the rest I’ve been vacationing for months. I needed a break. ” It did not happen since the beginning of his career: from 2007 to present he has shot 33 films. “I spend too much time on the set, that’s why my love stories are wrecked,” she complained a while ago. Things have changed: his relationship with his Swedish colleague, Alicia Vikander, known in 2014 during the shooting of The Light on the Oceans, is so good that apparently the two were recently wedded to Ibiza in a very secure ceremony where friends have been prevented from spreading images on social networks. Needless to ask him confirms: “Do not open my mouth!” He answers with a smile.

Where have you been on vacation?

In Formentera, Ibiza, Paris and South Africa (where Alicia turned Tomb Raider, ndr): I practiced surfing, my passion.

Another is speed, right?

I love racing cars since I was 3 years old. Last weekend I competed in the Ferrari Challenge Series: in Canada I came third, while another time I was going to win the second place, but I went to beat. Luckily I did not do anything.

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander
Do you consider it reckless?

Running relaxes me: I like the sense of freedom, for me it is a form of meditation. Recently, on the Snow Man set in Norway, I skipped for the first time. I’m a little late, I admit it!

How did it go?

I got it off: I went down, but without too much style (laughs, ndr). After the first 3 days I tried the red runs while I avoided the blacks. Maybe next time.

Did you read “Snowman”?

No, but I knew the other books in the series that starred Harry Hole. I like Nesbø’s style: characters are complex and unpredictable. This time Harry must see him with a serial killer who, when he kills, “signs” with a snowman.

Are you a fan of polizeschi?

Serpico is one of my favorite movies, but as a kid I was crazy for Colombo and Magnum P.I.

What is fascinating about Harry Hole?

The fact that it’s not the usual thing all of a sudden: it’s a man hardened by life, drinking to forget. And he has so many thoughts to the head that, at times, he prefers to silence them.

Would you be a good detective?

I do not think so, because I’m not intuitive when it comes to understanding what others think. In exchange between one case and the other you would always find me at the bar to eat donuts.

And as an actor do you like to observe the others?

Yes, it’s part of the craft. The problem is that today it is easier for others to look at me.

How was outdoor scenes -20 degrees?

Toning. The Macbeth set in Scotland, between wind and rain, was worse. However, I prefer to live in other climates.

Do you now live in Lisbon?

I’ve lived for 20 years in England and wanted to change air. This is a destabilizing period: Brexit has unveiled another face of the country. I am afraid of xenophobia, the rise of walls between people, the concept of “us and them”. In addition, Lisbon is less busy in London and is close to the ocean, which makes it perfect for surfing.

Have you already gone to listen to the fado?

No, but I should do it. It’s just a lousy music and I do not like that melancholy.

Do you really want to be a musician?

Yes, at age 17 I dreamed of playing guitar in a heavy metal band. I had long hair and I was in love with divo rock. One day a friend came home and started playing: at that moment I knew I had no talent.

I know you like to sing, though.

Every once in a while I have fun with karaoke, I have the cable with the falsetto (humming for a few seconds, ndr). Maybe it’s better to avoid, otherwise you risk finding this performance somewhere on the Internet!

Do you have a battle horse?

Frank Sinatra’s songs, which make me good because they are a kind of baritone. When I am ambitious, I choose Marvin Gaye and Rihanna.

You’ve been 40 years old. How did you celebrate?

My sister organized a surprise party in my hometown. But it was not a real surprise, as he insisted why no

Golden Moon Award, Maurizio Pasca, awarded in Ibiza

Night entertainment in Italy is the protagonist of the International Nightlife Congress, which took place in Ibiza on October 9 and 10 last.

The President of the Association of Dance and Entertainment Entertainment Companies (SILB) and European Nightlife Association (ENA), Maurizio Pasca, received the Golden Moon Award, the award for the 100 best locals on the planet and those who promotion and growth of the dance entertainment universe.

It is the first time ever that an Italian receives the Golden Moon Award.

To be awarded the important prize, among others, the mayor of London, the municipal administration of Barcelona and the Hakkasan economic group based in Las Vegas.

An incredible and unexpected emotion, the one lived at the Golden Moon Awards Gala – commented Ibiza, Maurizio Pasca – especially at the thought of being the first Italian to be awarded. To be awarded for the Best Nightlife Career as President of Ena and Silb, it means recognizing over 30 years of activities in favor of night-time entertainment at European and national level.

It is a joy I want to share with all my colleagues at Silb and my family, a stimulus to move forward and to do more and more for a sector that counts as many honest entrepreneurs and represents a slice of national economy of great importance. In November at Saint Vincent – adds Pasca -, will be held the XXXII national congress Silb, an occasion for comparison and growth of the sector, during which we will announce projects and future future of the night world. “

Ibiza at Christmas




You are thinking about it for a while but you are still undecided. Because you would like to spend a different Christmas than usual and would like to visit the island of Ibiza. To help you, we can give you five good reasons to organize the trip right away.


In Italy, Christmas often looks too much like a frenzied race to the most expensive or particular gift. And it ends up being even more stressful than a normal week of work. But not Ibiza. On this island, Christmas is full of relaxation. In the larger cities on the island, shops are obviously open until late. But Christmas is still a moment to live in the most complete tranquility, in the company of friends and relatives.


Although it is not summer (and probably the most beautiful beaches in Ibiza you can only admire them without diving into the sea – unless you are really enterprising), temperatures are more than pleasant and occasional rains. If you do not have the hard winter cold and you want to enjoy some sunshine without having to reach distant exotic destinations, Ibiza is the right compromise.


Choosing Ibiza as a destination for a trip also means this. And the Christmas period does not make sense. Ibiza is a lively, always moving island, a melting-pot of cultures that becomes almost tangible, and that pervades streets, squares, places, people.


If your suitcase never misses all the equipment you need to practice your favorite water sport, you will only be spoiled for choice in Ibiza. In particular, Playa d’en Bossa, Cala Martina and Playa s’Estanyol are some of the best places to practice windsurfing, kitesurfing and scuba diving.

Tourism changes: here are the most popular destinations



In the world of tourism is in the process of a small revolution that they are enjoying favorite capital once for the classic destinations.

So it happens that Dublin fights London and that the sparkling Amsterdam is more popular than the romantic Paris and Barcelona.

Tourism is changing and not least in times of crisis and international tensions.

To find out, we interviewed the “Rosmary” agency, which is headquartered in San Marcellino, and represents a point of reference for so many travelers in Avignon.

In October, it is possible to draw a first balance between the summer now behind and the last bridges of the year on the horizon, all on November 1, and the Immaculate.

“In the summer, the most popular destinations of those who came to us were Greece and Spain with distinctions: singles are thrown on Mykonos and Ibiza for nightlife and entertaining fun, while couples point to the quietest Santorini and Palma de Majorca.

This year we were overwhelmed by the boom of Egyptian Sharm El Sheik, who came back to life after a few years. “
