Quique Dacosta, chef-owner of the eponymous restaurant in Dénia, Spain, will launch an international paella concept.
To be named InPaella by Quique Dacosta, the restaurants will be located in capital cities around the world, with the first opening in London in the next few months. The eateries will feature 25-metre-long stove sections where customers will be able to try the signature one-pot Spanish rice dish, according to Dacosta, whose flagship restaurant is No.49 in The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2016.

He has written a book called Arroces Contemporáneos (Contemporary rice dishes) and has spent much of his career researching techniques and products related to paella.
