Eneko | Basque Kitchen & Bar
The Basque Country has the most Michelin-starred restaurants per-capita in the world.
And in a not-entirely-unrelated fact, they also have the most Basque restaurants per-capita in the world.
So it’s probably a good thing that London now has another one.
It’s from Eneko Atxa, who – not content with running a world top 20 restaurant; three Michelin-starred, Bilbao-based Azurmendi – is now behind Eneko, neatly slotting it into the ultra-luxe One Aldwych hotel.
The contemporary dining space is crafted from natural Basque materials, much like the wine bar, where you’ll be spoilt for choice with the all-Spanish grape list, that also includes several exclusive options from Atxa’s very own vineyard.
After a tipple, you’ll sit down to eat – and considering the pedigree of the food, it will probably have to be a three course affair. You might, for example, kick off with a layered chicken parfait, served with wine-soaked apple compote, followed perhaps by Basque-style tempura hake, before inevitably finishing with Torrija vanilla sponge with home-made sheep’s milk ice cream.
Traditional Basque belief is that good food means good character…
…so sharing this news probably makes you, like, the best person ever.
NOTE: Eneko – Basque Kitchen & Bar is now open daily for lunch and dinner, and Basque brunch every weekend – more on that HERE.
