Not long after his launch, however, Aizpitarte’s unique cuisine de vagabond style earned Le Chateaubriand a coveted spot S. Pellegrino’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants, where it has stayed for the past 6 years. Today, gourmands flock to the restaurant for Aizpitarte’s daily-changing menu, which features produce sourced fresh from the market, prepped using techniques and flavours ranging from Asian and Latin American to modern French. Your dinner begins with small plates like raw clams coated with toasted sesame seeds; chilled cucumber, spring pea and horseradish soup; or Spanish goat's cheese with stewed apple jam; before you continue to a trio of mains and desserts (with the all-important wine pairings throughout). Book ahead, prepare to queue, or try sister establishment French tapas bar, Le Dauphin, next door.
