Enrique Iglesias, Rafael Nadal

Two handsome men and a bounty of Spanish food? Count us in.

Enrique Iglesias and tennis pro (and Tommy Hilfiger hunk) Rafael Nadal have teamed up with basketball star Pau Gasol and businessman Abel Matutes Prats to open a string of Spanish restaurants called Tatel, Eater reports.

“The food of our country is very famous,” a spokesperson for the investors said. “There are many Spanish restaurants but none have tried to become the reference at a national or even international level.”

For now, you’ll need a plane ticket to get a taste: The flagship Tatal opens in Madrid this March, and will be 800 square meters, decked out in 1920’s inspired decor and divided into three zones — the restaurateurs hope to “surprise customers with performances.” We’re assuming of a musical nature, given Iglesias’ talents.

Tatel Ibiza is set to open in 2016, with future plans to expand to Barcelona, London, and Las Vegas already in the works.

No word on whether Iglesias’s Atlantico rum will be on the menu, or if his habit of kissing his fans will also apply to his restaurant costumers — but there’s always hope.
