London’ stellar restaurant scene keeps getting better. In February, the Halkin Hotel in Belgravia will welcome the award-winning team behind Arzak in San Sebastien, the Michelin three-starred restaurant that’s also ranked eighth on the World's 50 Best List. Called “Ametsa with Arzak Instruction”, the new Basque restaurant will replace the hotel’s celebrated Thai restaurant nahm. (Chef David Thompson will continue to helm nahm at the Metropolitan by COMO in Bangkok.)
The original Arzak nabbed its third Michelin star in 1987 and has been in the same family for four generations; Arzak Instruction was created by a five-chef team (including the father and daughter duo, Juan Mari Arzak and Elena Arzak) to champion the restaurant’s "New Basque Cuisine," rooted in the traditions of the Basque country.
