The cook and businessman Quique Dacosta, which has 5 Michelin Stars distributed between its restaurant in Dénia and El Poblet, has announced that it will be the gastronomic manager of the new Mandarin Oriental Ritz Madrid, which will open its doors this summer. After the largest restoration in the 110-year history of this emblematic hotel, the luxurious hotel multinational entrusts the creation and management of its culinary area to one of the best chefs in our country, the gastronomic ambassador par excellence of the Marina Alta.
