Michelin Star Chef Martin Berasategui to Open New Restaurant on Costa del Sol

Martin Berasategui, a renowned Spanish chef from the Basque Country, has announced his plans to open a new restaurant on the Costa del Sol. Known as the ‘master of the Michelin stars’, Berasategui has earned seven Michelin stars throughout his illustrious culinary career. The 62-year-old chef’s new venture will allow diners on the Costa del Sol to experience his award-winning Basque cuisine. The restaurant is set to open in Marbella next year.

Expansion of Berasategui’s Culinary Empire

The new restaurant in Marbella is part of Berasategui’s grand plan to expand his food empire. He also has plans to open more restaurants in Tenerife, Mallorca, and Dubai. “Throughout 2023 I hope to open new projects in Dubai, Tenerife and Marbella, among others, and we maintain those that are already underway in Spain and in the world,” he said. Despite the expansion, Berasategui’s priority remains the mother house of Lasarte.

Closure of Eme Be Garrote

Berasategui recently closed his famous Eme Be Garrote restaurant in his hometown of San Sebastian. The restaurant was unique as it was ‘the only Michelin star that a cider house has won’. Berasategui explained that the Eme Be Garrote was a project intended to be maintained for a limited time. Initially, he planned to run it for five years, but it ended up lasting ten.

Berasategui’s Culinary Journey

Berasategui began his culinary journey at the age of 13, working in his family restaurant, Bodegon Alejandro. In 1979, he started catering studies at a French pastry school. He took over Bodegon Alejandro in 1981 and earned the restaurant’s first Michelin star just five years later. Since then, he has won six more Michelin stars and various awards such as the Basque Gastronomy Prize, Best Chef of the Basque Country, and the Gold Drum of San Sebastian.

Berasategui’s Michelin Star Restaurants

Berasategui earned three Michelin stars from his ‘parent’ restaurant in Lasarte, two stars from the Lasarte restaurant at Hotel Condes in Barcelona, and two stars from the M.B. restaurant in the luxurious Abama resort in Tenerife. His culinary prowess has put him on the world’s Top 100 chefs list and has contributed to Spain’s dominance in the culinary world.
