Fodor's Expert Review Azurmendi

$$$$ Bilbao Spanish
This award-winning, highly ranked restaurant, a 10-minute drive from town, is constantly lauded for its envelope-pushing cuisine and industry-leading sustainability practices. The experience begins the moment you enter into its spacious indoor garden, with a chef greeting you with a cocktail before escorting you to the kitchen to be introduced to the “Azurmendi concept.” Next is a trip to the sunny greenhouse to nibble on gourmet appetizers made with fresh garden produce, followed by a “picnic” in the lobby with dishes like truffled eggs "cooked inside out." The culinary climax takes place in the dining room with dishes like smoked fish brioche or roasted lobster out of the shell, sluiced with coffee butter.
