The London Restaurant Festival offers the opportunity to explore and experience London’s finest cuisines throughout October. From high-profiled restaurants, food tours, and the trendy and unusual experiences – there is something for everyone.
The festival itself aims to raise the profile of the city’s restaurants and eateries, while bringing together the diverse and culturally variety of cuisines.
The main events include Festival Menus, which allows customers to experience amazing food and drink in some of London’s best and hotly anticipated restaurants, all for less. The menus on offer range from Michelin starred establishments to family friendly restaurants to local favourites. Menu prices start from less than £10 per person and so there is no excuse to enjoy fine dining for less.
Restaurant hopping tours are also on offer, including the Tapas Tour, Japanese Journey and Chinatown Tour, to name a few. These tours allow you to experience six restaurants, each offering a small plate and a drink each. You can also take the tour at a leisurely pace, visiting them throughout the day or over a weekend, and leaving when you are ready.
The restaurant highlights throughout the festival include, amongst others; Roux at The Landau, a French cuisine eatery with acclaimed father and son chefs, Albert and Michel Roux Jr; OXO Tower Brasserie which offers stunning views atop of South Bank alongside modern dishes; and the Cinnamon Club, an Indian fine dining experience like no other.
The London Restaurant Festival is great for the foodies among us, but for it’s not all about evening meals. Afternoon teas and more relaxed atmospheres are also on the menu. Enjoy the Fish Market’s seafood, located in London’s oldest East India warehouses. Or take to high tea in the Library Lounge at the London Marriott Hotel – you’re sure to find something to suit your taste buds this October.
