The three Michelin starred Valencian chef has opened the doors of his first restaurant outside of Spain, with rice at the heart of the offering. Speaking on the opening during one of his many visits to London, Quique has said, “I am excited to bring part of our tradition and gastronomy to one of the most important capitals of the world. Paella is one of the best-known dishes around yet also one of the most mistreated, with this project, I am materializing a passion I have been nurturing for decades: to reinstate the rice culture from the eastern coast of Spain to its rightful home”.

Quique Dacosta opened Arros QD on Fitzrovia’s 64 Eastcastle Street on the 7th June 2019. His first restaurant in London and outside of his native Spain, the collaborative project showcases Quique’s unique style of cooking while highlighting his passion for rice as well as premium, local and seasonal ingredients.
