An Inside Look at Amelia Restaurant in San Sebastian
Amelia is a restaurant based in the little busy street of San Sebastian City, Spain serving only tasting menus, focusing on using seasonal and sustainable raw materials and the revaluation of forgotten products. The place was furnished and designed by Sestini & Corti from Italy.
“Restaurant is divided in two floors: the basement, where the kitchen is allocated, which has its walls coated with tiles in various patterns and on the floor travertine stone and the ground floor where the walls, left as rough and raw concrete, border the floor made with recovered fir wood. All the tables were handcrafted from solid wood obtained from old oak beams from old Tuscan farmhouses, a type of wood very special with its distinguished strong consistency and with its own various colored grain. The counter and behind it, located at the entrance of the restaurant among other furniture products, were made entirely tailored; with wood, glass and iron; to fit many glasses used in the tasting of fine wines from all around the world. The chairs and the long wall bench at the ground floor were covered with an intense blue ecological leather, color used to recall the color of the ocean, undisputed protagonist in the city of San Sebastian. Amelia restaurant, with its materic style look, elegant and contemporary, wants to break the tradition of the other restaurants in the city, welcoming the customers in a place with researched and accurate in every detail design,” said Paolo Sestini
