Taste of Spain: Agua slated to open in October, join Niajo, Migas in Nali Patio

Look for former Legation Quarter restaurant Agua and head chef Jordi Valles to return to the Beijing dining scene in October, says a press release from the company. The new Agua will be on the fourth floor of Nali Patio and focus on the contemporary Spanish cuisine that saw Valles emerge as one of the city’s best-known chefs. It will be one flight above Mosto, Apothecary, and fellow Spanish restaurant Niajo, and is among several upcoming openings in Nali, including wine bar Enoteca, expected to open in about a month’s time, and yet another Spanish operation, Migas, which should be open any day now and will take over the top floor and excellent rooftop patio that was once expected to be home to Project H. Add in the Taste of Spain shop on the first floor and Carmen in the freestanding building just to the north, and fans of Spanish food and wine should be happy with the growing number of choices.
