Ametsa with Arzak Instruction awarded duo of accolades in one week

October 5, 2013 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Ametsa with Arzak Instruction is delighted to announce that it has been awarded three Rosettes in the 2014 AA Restaurant Guide as well as one Michelin star in the space of just one week for its innovative Spanish cuisine.

Both accolades highlight exceptional standards in food and service, which has been achieved within six months of the restaurant’s arrival on the London dining scene.

Ametsa’s home is the Belgravia hotel, The Halkin by COMO, which has previously hosted Michelin-star restaurants from Stefano Cavallini and more recently, the award-winning Thai restaurant, nahm, by David Thompson. Ametsa with Arzak Instruction continues this Michelin-starred tradition in a unique collaboration between COMO Hotels and Resorts and a kitchen team trained by chef Elena Arzak– voted Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef last year – along with her father Juan Mari Arzak, Mikel Sorazu, Igor Zalakain and Xabier Gutierrez. Father and daughter hold three Michelin stars at the original Arzak restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain, with the restaurant ranked number eight in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards.

Sergio Sanz Blanco, Executive Chef at Ametsa, has created various Basque-inflected dishes, with his signature tasting menu (£105 per person) including highlights such as King Prawns and Spider Crab with Sweetcorn, Pigeon with Shot, and Chocolate Fondant with Piquillo ice cream. His modern re-interpretation of tapas is served in the Halkin Bar, alongside home-made Sangria.

The restaurant is open every day for lunch and dinner (except Sunday lunch).
