The Crown at Burchetts Green #MichelinStar

A good lunch can be many things. Hosted by chef Simon Bonwick and his family, lunch at The Crown is always an ultimately joyous and heart-warming affair. 

Offering an outrageously splendid value for money, daily changing menu chosi, Simon’s love of food and cookery is evident in every morsel that leaves his solo-manned kitchen. Passionately prepared with classical skills, he always gets the best from quality local, British and French produce.

Amelia, Donostia / San Sebastián #1MichelinStar

Born in Argentina from Italian heritage, chef Paulo Airaudo is a truly global chef. He has worked in the UK, notably at The Fat Duck and Restaurant Adam Simmons, and held a Michelin star at La Bottega in Switzerland. In addition to this, his food borrows heavily from French and Nordic influences.

Having previously worked at Arzak, in 2017, Paulo returned with his family to open Amelia, named after his daughter. Within seven months of opening, Michelin awarded the restaurant its first star.

Not a “Spanish restaurant”, Amelia offers locals and food savvy travellers in Donostia / San Sebastián something different.

What Michelin say, “This centrally located restaurant, with its unusual contemporary-industrial decor, embodies the unique skill of Paulo Airaudo, an Argentinian chef whose family originally hails from Italy. The focus here is on the very best seasonal products and refined culinary skill that will fascinate guests. A visit to his kitchen is included!”
