El Bulli, a Catalonian restaurant known as the most difficult place in the world to get a meal reservation, served its final dinner and went out of business on July 30.

According to AFP, about 50 people were invited to partake in a 50-course meal featuring dishes like “pistachio ravioli” and “ham with melon juice dressing”. The restaurant will reopen in 2014 as a culinary institute. Ferran Adrià said “everything is going according to plan.”

El Bulli opened in 1964. England’s Restaurant Magazine has named it the best restaurant in the world 5 times since 2002. The average cost of a meal there is 270 euros per person. Over 2 million reservation requests are made each year. In January 2010, Mr. Adrià announced the restaurant would close its doors.
