Three Michelin star chef Quique Dacosta is to open a group of Paella restaurants around the world, with the first slated for London by the end of 2017/early 2018.
According to Big Hospitality, the concept will be named InPaella and each restaurant will feature a 25-metre stove where diners can sample the traditional Spanish dish. The plan, initially, is to open six restaurants in major cities over the next five years.
Dacosta’s eponymous restaurant in Dénia, Spain, where he applies a Modernist approach to Mediterranean cuisine, retained its three star status in the most recent Michelin Guide to Spain and Portugal. Dacosta follows another Spanish three Michelin star chef to London – David Muñoz recently transported his Street XO concept from Madrid.
We wonder what Dacosta would make of Jamie Oliver’s recent take on paella, which got the chirpy British chef into serious hot water with the Spanish on social media?
