Chef José Pizarro will open two new restaurants at Royal Academy

Spanish chef José Pizarro has announced that he will open two new restaurants, one formal and one casual, at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. The two new restaurants, scheduled to open on August 11, will serve emblematic dishes from the chef, such as Ibérico presa, strawberry gazpacho, spicy prawn fritters with aioli, tortilla, and ham at the latter.

According to Food & Wine’s news, Pizarro said: “I’m extremely proud to be at the Royal Academy of Arts, which is one of the most important—if not the most important—art institutions in the whole world. I’m thrilled to be able to raise awareness about Spanish gastronomy in a place so diverse and so full of culture. I’m over the moon. For me, art is very important and I enjoy it almost as much as cooking.”
