London is full of surprises and the one that I have recently embraced with open arms is Eneko at One Aldwych, which opened in September 2016. When a restaurant is affiliated to (and named after) a chef with three Michelin Stars and whose debut restaurant is ranked number 16 in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, you tend…
