A THREE-MICHELIN starred Spanish cook is to open a new restaurant in London.

Elena Arzak, named by critics as the world’s best female chef, will unveil Ametsa – meaning ‘dream’ in Basque – at Belgravia’s five-star Halkin hotel in February.

The 43-year-old, who runs Arzak in San Sebastian with her dad, chef Juan Mari, trained in London during her time at restaurant Le Gavroche.
