Three Michelin starred chef, Eneko Atxa’s Basque restaurant, Eneko at One Aldwych will officially launch at London’s One Aldwych Hotel on Thursday, 1 September with a soft opening throughout August.

Featuring Eneko Atxa’s fun and inventive modern interpretation of Basque cuisine, the award winning chef will take the 110 cover restaurant in a new direction offering a simpler, more relaxed culinary concept deeply rooted in traditional Basque cooking.

Starters will include the Txerri Boda Pork Festival - a trio of Iberico ham and mushroom duxelle in milk bread, suckling pig brioche and pigs trotter bocata. Main courses include Basque style hake tempura, red pepper sauce and parsley emulsion and vegetarian dishes include dressed beetroot tartare as well as bomba rice risotto with Idiazabal pesto. For dessert Eneko will offer his signature rice pudding lollipops with crisp white and dark chocolate hazelnut coating.

Located on the mezzanine will be a floating 35 cover wine bar which will offer a carefully crafted Spanish list, including the house Gorka Izagirre Txakoli, a crisp white wine from Eneko’s own vineyards. A bar menu with a selection of Basque inspired dishes will be offered.

Eneko at One Aldwych is the first restaurant designed by celebrated firm Casson Mann with many materials sourced from craftsmen in the Basque region, wood and stone in particular, including bespoke contemporary furniture and interior detail.

One Aldwych, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, opened in 1998 in Covent Garden and is one of London’s most acclaimed luxury hotels. Its many awards include Best Boutique Hotel in the World, London Luxury Hotel of the Year and Best Hotel in London.

Throughout August guests can enjoy 50% off food. Bookings are taken for lunch or dinner seven days a week on 020 7300 0300 or via www.eneko.london though walk-ins will always be accepted.
