THREE Michelin-starred chef Quique Dacosta has brought his first restaurant outside of Spain to London’s Fitzrovia – and celebrities are flocking to it.

Galician octopus leg is an explosion of flavours, colours and textures.

He’s renowned for “contemporary reinterpretations” of classic Mediterranean dishes, inspired by the ancient trade routes from Africa and Asia into Spain.

And Arros QD on Eastcastle Street offers an unforgettable experience – from exquisite, ‘Instagrammable’ dishes to world-famous wines.

So it’s no wonder it’s getting the attention of famous faces in the city.

The menu changes with the seasons, blending regional Spanish cooking heritage with local British ingredients.

Cooked to the flame on a six-metre stove, dishes include everything from flame-grilled octopus to tomahawk steaks and paellas brought sizzling to your table.

This Saturday (March 19), Las Fallas – the city of Valencia’s celebration of fire festival – comes to Arros QD from 6.30pm.

For one night only, the Spanish city’s biggest cultural event is coming to London in association with Visit Valencia and Valencia Region.

Arros QD will celebrate its heritage with DJ La Santa, live fire artistry entertainment, Spanish cocktails and seven-courses.

Tickets cost £115 per person, which includes dinner, drinks and dancing from 6.30pm to the early hours of the morning.
