Former Iggy’s head chef Aitor Jeronimo opens Basque Kitchen by Aitor

The former head chef of one-Michelin-star Iggy’s has collaborated with Unlisted Collection to open Basque Kitchen by Aitor. The Spanish restaurant, which raises its shutters today, will take over the space that was recently vacated by Blackwattle.

The casual fine-dining restaurant will showcase a contemporary take on Basque cuisine. The first floor of the restaurant sees counter seats and an open kitchen, the second level accommodates a private dining room and a bar area. Expect an extensive Spanish wine list here, curated by Unlisted Collection’s group wine manager Amir Solay.

Basque Kitchen will be opened for both lunch and dinner. Set lunches and a la carte menus are available Monday to Friday, starting from $45. Dinner sees three, five and seven-course tasting menus, starting from $115.

“I’m excited to introduce a slice of my heritage to Singapore. Though I was born in Madrid, Basque cuisine is no stranger to me as my family is from the Basque Country,” says chef Aitor in a press release.

“The dishes served here at the restaurant are not traditional Basque but an interpretation that will showcase a more refined and modern version of your typical Basque dishes.”

This follows Unlisted Collection’s recent announcement of a collaboration with Swedish chef and restauranteur Björn Franzén to open fine-dining restaurant Zén.

Basque Kitchen by Aitor at 97 Amoy Street soft opens today, October 10 2018.
