Quique Dacosta to Open Arros QD in London

The Michelin-star chef will open his first restaurant in London in early 2019 where the main focus will be rice with a unique spin

London is preparing for a new Spanish restaurant in early 2019 from none other than Quique Dacosta. The 3-Michelin star chef, who runs his high-end restaurant in Alicante, will be opening Arros QD in our northern neighbor.

This will be his first venture in London and the 2-story restaurant will be located in the upscale Fitzrovia neighborhood. As the name suggests, the main focus will be rice, a product you don’t see at many high-end restaurants.

However, don’t expect Dacosta to be serving up just any old paella. The dishes here will have a singular spin and will “showcase Quique’s unique style of cooking and highlight premium Spanish ingredients,” according to

Dacosta is one of Spain’s most famous chefs and he runs two restaurants with Michelin stars: Quique Dacosta, in Denia, and El Poblet, in Valencia. He’s considered a leader of the avant-garde cuisine movement in Spain. His restaurants consistently rank on the “best” lists year after year.

The Evening Standard has included this new restaurant in its list of London restaurant openings to most look forward to.
