On the threshold of this new year, we plunge into an ocean of emotions, where the waves of the past dissolve to make way for a horizon full of promises and hopes. The clock marks the end of one chapter and the opening of another, a blank canvas waiting to be painted with the vibrant strokes of our dreams and experiences yet to unfold.

We raise our glasses to the sky, toasting to shared laughter, overcome challenges, and tears that shaped our strength. Each heartbeat, another page in the book of our lives, woven with threads of love, friendship, and courage. In the loom of time, we are the artisans of our destiny, intertwining unforgettable moments that shape our unique narrative.

The clock of life ticks forward, bringing with it the opportunity to renew, to embrace the magic of the new. May this year be a canvas where we paint smiles on the faces of those we love, a stage where the music of happiness resonates strongly. May the light of hope illuminate our path, dispelling the shadows of yesterday.

May each day of 2024 be an adventure, a poem filled with exciting verses and vibrant colors. Let’s celebrate small and big achievements, learn from challenges, and find inspiration with each sunrise. May the flame of passion burn in our hearts, guiding us toward the realization of our boldest dreams.

In this journey called life, the most precious moments are those we share with those we love. At Grupo Dani García, we want to toast to all of you and wish you health, love, and happiness.

Here’s to good food, exceptional company, and a 2024 filled with success. Cheers!

Happy New Year!

In this magical season that envelops us with bright lights and festive melodies, we want to take a moment to send a message filled with affection and warmth.

May these holidays gift you moments of joy, love, and serenity. May every twinkle of light on the Christmas tree illuminate your heart, and may cheerful music accompany you in every corner of your home.

Christmas is much more than meticulously wrapped gifts and festive dinners; it is a magical moment where hearts beat in unison, reminding us of the importance of family, friendship, and generosity. During these days, the Christmas spirit invites us to reflect on the ending year, express gratitude for the blessings received, and look towards the future with hope.

It’s a time to embrace our loved ones, whether physically or virtually, and to share laughter, stories, and affection. Every gesture of love and kindness resonates like a celestial melody that fills the air with magic. The twinkling lights on the streets and the laughter of children as they unwrap their gifts create an atmosphere brimming with positive emotions and hope.

In this wonderful journey called life, Christmas is a special stop that urges us to remember what truly matters: our connection with others and the ability to make the world a warmer and brighter place. So, on this occasion, we wish that your home be filled with love, your heart overflowing with joy, and your days illuminated with the radiant light of Merry Christmas.

May each shared wish become a special gift, and may the Christmas spirit endure in your heart throughout the upcoming new year.

Dani Garcia’s team wishes you a Merry Christmas!

The holiday season is filled with joy, love, and the exciting anticipation of exchanging gifts. Whether on Christmas Eve or Three Kings’ Day, the tradition of giving becomes a meaningful act that strengthens family bonds and friendships. The choice of gifts reflects the attention and affection we put into understanding the tastes and desires of our loved ones.

Christmas Eve envelops us in a magical atmosphere as we exchange gifts beneath the illuminated tree. The laughter of children, the warmth of the fireplace, and the exchange of carefully wrapped packages create indelible memories. Christmas gifts symbolize the generous spirit of the season, reminding us that giving is as rewarding as receiving.

Then comes Three Kings’ Day, a special celebration in many cultures that commemorates the arrival of the three wise men. On this occasion, gifts not only represent affection but also adoration and reverence for loved ones. Families gather to share the Rosca de Reyes, spreading hope and prosperity for the new year.

Regardless of their material value, gifts convey messages of appreciation and consideration. They can be small gestures expressing gratitude or thoughtful gifts that demonstrate how well we know someone. Additionally, choosing sustainable gifts reflects environmental consciousness and social responsibility during this festive season.

The tradition of giving gifts during Christmas and Three Kings’ Day goes beyond the act itself. It is an expression of love, connection, and gratitude that unites people in a spirit of celebration. In each gift, the magic of sharing special moments with those we value most is hidden.

Dani García’s Online Experiences

Renowned Spanish chef Dani García redefines gastronomy with innovative culinary creations. His avant-garde approach and ability to merge tradition and modernity offer unique and memorable gastronomic experiences for fortunate diners exploring his culinary art.

In the group’s online store, you can find experiences for two people at his restaurants BiBo, Lobito de Mar, Leña, Smoked Room, Tragabuches, Alelí, and El Coleccionista. Perfect menus for two people.

Gift gastronomy, happiness, and unforgettable memories.

Give unforgettable moments they’ll never forget. The trend has shifted towards non-material gifts for enjoying unique moments. Choose a fixed menu or a gift card to redeem for their favorite dishes at the restaurant. Give Dani García and be the standout success on the magical nights of this Christmas.

After a period of exciting openings for Dani García, mainly focused on his hometown, the chef from Marbella now starts with a new international double opening, this time in Dubai: Smoked Room and Leña, which will be located in the exclusive hotel The St. Regis Garden, on the iconic Palm Jumeirah Island.

This exclusive enclave will host two new concepts signed by the Andalusian chef who, after his time in Doha, where he has the restaurants BiBo and Lobito de Mar, is once again betting on the Middle East as a destination to take Spanish gastronomy beyond its borders, now with Leña and Smoked Room. Thus, the Dani García Group’s expansion and growth process continues with the aim of promoting Spanish brand cuisine around the world.

These two proposals, although markedly different, have the same common thread: smoke. Thus, Leña, which will open its doors on December 18, and Smoked Room, which will open a few days later, will share location, but not space or equipment, and will be located in Al Nakheel Mall, connected through a green esplanade with the St. Regis Gardens Hotel, in the heart of the iconic Palm Jumeirah Island in Dubai.

Leña, the redefinition of grilling

On the other hand, and as in Marbella and Madrid, Leña Dubai will be a steakhouse that goes a step further and comes to offer locals and visitors an irresistible duality: the balance between Dani Garcia’s technique and honesty and respect for the product. Thus, it proposes a menu very focused on the raw material and its versatility in front of the embers, but with a very personal touch and a marked international influence, the result of the chef’s travels and experiences around the world.

His gastronomic offer has fire, embers and smoked flavor as a common thread. Thus, the menu of Leña Dubai will maintain dishes that have gained popularity around the world as the Burger bull, meatball yakipincho, Burgos lamb roasted with fine herbs, grilled lobster with sherry beurre blanc and fries with caviar, roasted leek with gribiche sauce and hazelnuts with black truffle or his famous foie gras in the form of apple with grilled garlic and lemon. Among the novelties, Dani García will present elaborations such as his famous grilled avocado from Málaga, this time with coriander pesto and feta cheese splash, 300 g of juicy grilled picaña or A5 Japanese wagyu loin tomahawk. To finish, sweet bites such as the new chocolate donut, mille-feuille with diplomatic cream or its emblematic tarte di rose.

Firewood in Dubai features an impressive bar and lounge area, a spacious indoor dining room for 150 guests and a stunning terrace overlooking Palm Jumeirah. In addition, its outdoor terrace seats 140 guests, with an additional 40 seats at the bar.

Smoked Room, elevating haute cuisine on the grill

Only a few months after its opening in Madrid, Smoked Room managed to enter the prestigious Michelin Guide directly with two stars. With this space, Dani García translates his passion for haute cuisine, embers and hospitality into an exclusive space with embers and smoke as the main pillars of the proposal. Thus, the technique becomes an indispensable part of each dish, turning the smoke into a dressing and a unique touch of each fish, vegetable, seafood or meat.

In this space, Smoked Room will offer the Fire Omakase tasting menu, a proposal that consists of letting yourself be carried away by the chef and enjoy, and will change according to the products of the season. As with the Madrid restaurant, the Dubai restaurant will have only 14 seats in a unique space where you can enjoy an unparalleled culinary spectacle in an incomparable location.

In this exclusive setting, the chef invites you to welcome the year with the New Year’s Eve experience, which promises an unforgettable evening in a cozy atmosphere, offering an exclusive and personalized culinary journey. Dinner will begin at 8:00 pm with a special “Fire Omakase” menu and will end at 11:30 pm with a delicious dessert that will mark the transition to the outdoor terrace. As the clock approaches midnight, diners will enjoy a reserved space on the terrace with breathtaking views of Palm Jumeirah and Atlantis The Palm. Strategically located, this area offers the best panoramic views of the city and is the perfect place to witness the mesmerizing New Year’s Eve fireworks display over Atlantis The Palm.

Thus, with the exciting launch of Leña y Smoked Room in Dubai, chef Dani García takes another step forward in his mission to bring Spanish cuisine to all parts of the world and captivate palates through the flavors of his homeland.

The last night of the year

Also known as New Year’s Eve, is an effervescent time full of anticipation and deep-rooted traditions around the world. In Spain, the New Year’s Eve celebration is an amalgam of joy, symbolism and rituals that mark the end of one year and the beginning of a new one.

The festivities begin with traditional family dinners or gatherings with friends, where tables are filled with festive delicacies and spirited toasts. Many choose to dress in elegant and glitzy attire, reflecting the idea of saying goodbye to the year in style.

The lucky grape is a crucial component of the Spanish celebration. Just before midnight, people gather in front of the television to watch the chimes from Puerta del Sol in Madrid. With each chime, a grape is eaten, symbolizing the twelve months of the year and making wishes for each of them. This ritual is followed with enthusiasm, and those who manage to eat all twelve grapes on time are said to have good luck in the coming year.

The streets are filled with hustle and bustle and celebration after midnight. Fireworks light up the sky, and music and laughter resound everywhere. Squares and landmarks become stages for hugs, toasts and a collective explosion of happiness. It is common for people to move to discos or night events to continue the celebration until the early hours of the morning.

The feeling of saying goodbye to the old year and welcoming the new is permeating every corner. People reflect on the achievements and challenges of the year that is ending, set resolutions for the future and share special moments with loved ones.

The most special night of the year brings with it an unforgettable dinner.

The last night of the year, New Year’s Eve, brings with it a variety of typical dinners that reflect the gastronomic richness of different cultures. In Spain, it is common to enjoy a hearty dinner that includes fresh seafood, Iberian ham, and emblematic dishes such as grilled shrimp. In Italy, the cenone of Capodanno features dishes such as cotechino con lenticchie (sausage with lentils), symbolizing prosperity. In Japan, Toshikoshi Soba, soba noodles eaten before midnight, represents the farewell to the old year. In Latin America, tables are filled with tamales, roast suckling pig, and the famous lucky grapes in countries such as Mexico and Colombia. These dinners are not only a delicious tradition, but also unite families and friends around the table to say goodbye to the year with gratitude and joy.
