Who is Fran Agudo?

His gastronomic style stands out for its elegance and ultra attention to detail.

The pandemic led him to reinvent himself. His life took a 360-degree turn after the closure of Tickets. That's when he started Mont Bar. Today he is responsible for its menu development and for coordinating the kitchen staff.

He was born in Andújar (Jaén), Spain but his family moved to Lloret de Mar in Girona, where he spent his childhood and adolescence. He started in the world of hospitality by way of family tradition. When he was just 12 years old, he was already helping his father and grandmother in a small restaurant located in a tourist area in Catalonia, Spain.

Little by little he adopted the chef’s way of life. He held some sporadic jobs in different production areas until he decided to acquire professional training at the Girona School of Hotel and Catering. This led him to do an internship at the Celler de Can Roca. During his time there he managed to become fully involved in the trade, which in turn led to a second internship at Tickets alongside Albert Adrià.

Along with Mont Bar, he launched a second project with Iván Castro called Mediamanga, a traditional cuisine bistro in Barcelona.

In 2022, he became a finalist for the “Cuiner 2022” award given by La Vanguardia and the Gastronomic Forum Barcelona.
