Paella is raised to the level of gastronomy by Spanish chef Alberto Herraiz. He prepares a range of paellas, from classic Valencian with rabbit and chicken, to a wonderful inky black squid version, and the rice of the day, served in a big round metal dish for two. Each is cooked to order and prepared with its specific stock, so start with gazpacho, well-aged Spanish ham or a selection of inventive tapas while you wait. Herraiz’s attention has been applied to the elegant setting too: he has even designed the tables himself, with a clever drawer for cutlery.
