London Restaurant Festival

London Restaurant Festival is a citywide celebration of eating out, designed to raise the profile of restaurants involved and drive footfall. The Festival, created by Evening Standard restaurant critic Fay Maschler and fellow founders, was launched in 2009.

More than 450 restaurants from across the capital took part in the inaugural year, each running Festival Menus. In addition, some of the London restaurant industry’s most influential people got behind the Festival, with Gordon Ramsay cooking on the London Eye, Pierre Koffmann opening a Restaurant on the Roof at Selfridges and The Wolseley’s “Festival Afternoon Tea”.

Building on last year’s success, the 2010 London Restaurant Festival will run from 4-18 October. This year they hope that up to 800 restaurants will get involved throughout London. The Festival offers food lovers the chance to explore some of the UK capital’s finest cooking – from its high-profile Michelin-starred restaurants to coveted neighbourhood bistros.

London Restaurant Festival comprises two main elements:

Attractively priced Festival Menus, designed to showcase a restaurant’s individuality and cooking style, are the bedrock of the annual celebration.

Festival Events are high-profile, ticketed events such as the London Eye Restaurant CapsulesGourmet Odyssey and free events such as the Festival Market.
