London’s food scene is blooming – not just with the local talented chefs but also with the outposts of the international stars. Quite some great chefs came here already, but I couldn’t be happier than I was on Monday morning when I received an email from Eneko Atxa who was telling me about his new opening in London. He told me some months ago that he has some news which he will share with me as soon as he can but I had no idea what it will be.
I know and follow Eneko’s work since years and deeply respect his constant striving for perfection which starts at sourcing of the best ingredients, creating the most sustainable environment possible (his flagship restaurant Azurmendi was a year ago at World’s 50 best restaurants awards ceremony awarded as the world’s most sustainable restaurant) and developing dishes which always exceed expectations of even the most traveled food lovers.
So the news about his opening definitely made me happy. The restaurant Eneko At One Aldwych in London should open in summer 2016 and will be an informal Basque restaurant and bar in a relaxed and friendly fashion, offering food rooted in the traditional Basque cuisine with Azurmendi signature.
There is not much more to say right now, more details will follow later, but London will for sure embrace this new restaurant.
