This summer, look out for the opening of Eneko at One Aldwych, a relaxed Basque restaurant and bar run by Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa. Chef Eneko creates an inventive interpretation of traditional Basque country cuisine, inspired by his restaurants Azurmendi, currently ranked 19th in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and Bistro Pret A Porter, which has a Michelin Bib Gourmand. This restaurant is an exciting addition to Covent Garden, and a first for London’s outstanding restaurant scene.
One Aldwych already offers fantastic food and drink options, with this addition due to make it one of London’s most sought-after locations for luxury dining. The lobby bar offers a stunning array of cocktail options, and has been named one of the top five hotel bars in the world by the Sunday Telegraph. It also offers bar food from 11am to 11pm every day, with dishes that perfectly complement the great selection of drinks on offer.
Alternatively, afternoon tea is a luxurious affair, inspired by the much-loved tale of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. From decadent golden eggs to blueberry brioche and playful flavoured candy floss, every item reflects the wit and wonder of Roald Dahl’s classic tale. This is such a popular treat that it gets booked up months in advance, so to splendour in the stunning tastes and smells, you’ll want to book now.
The addition of Eneko at One Aldwych will undoubtedly make this venue a favourite in the city. Speaking of this venture, Chef Eneko says he plans “to create an unpretentious modern take on rustic Basque cuisine, based on quality ingredients, simplicity and culinary heritage”.
