Michelin star chef Eneko Atxa opens in London
Eneko at One Aldwych opens in London
Following on from the success of his Bilbao temple of gastronomy, Azurmendi, chef Eneko Atxa promises to bring Basque cuisine to Covent Garden with his new restaurant venture, Eneko at One Aldwych, which opens on September 1, with previews from August 1.
A modernist glass masterpiece set on a hillside, Azurmendi has garnered three Michelin stars for its tasting menus. This same attention to detail will be channeled in Atxa’s 110-seat London restaurant (second picture), designed by architects Casson Mann with Basque decor references. A 35-seat wine bar on the mezzanine level will serve Spanish wines, including glasses of the house Gorka Izagirre Txakoli white from Atxa’s own vineyards.
