The winner of our 2019 / 20 ranking - a very special place with a unique chef.
Lennox Hastie is fascinated by fire. He spent his early career working at Michelin Star restaurants in the UK, France and Spain. Whilst he honed his skills in these kitchens, he began to lose sight of what he loved most about cooking, the quality and variety of ingredients.
After seeking out Etxebarri, a world leading asador (by the way our 5th-placed restaurant) with a strong tradition of wood-fired grilling, Lennox worked with Victor Arguinzoniz, pushing the limits of what could be cooked over a wood fire. He was exposed to a form of cooking that was so completely different, beautifully complex, yet simple. This was a turning point.
If you are looking for a quintessential wood-fired dining experience - this is the place.
