It seems only like just last year, when I took Quim, Yuri, then barely a teenager, and his little brother to Chinatown in New York City for dinner. Now the guy is the heart-throb of La Boquería.

I have been to Quim de la Boquería at least a score of times, but when I arrived, looking for barstools for me and Kay, on the late afternoon of Friday, Feb. 3, I realized that Quim Marquéz, his ingredients, cooking style, cooking crew including his son Yuri, had moved to another dimension. We sat down around 4 p.m. (!) to what would be a multi-course meal of five-star world class dishes, even in a white table cloth restaurant.
