The London Restaurant Festival is a celebratory and all-encompassing food affair, showcasing a huge variety of events at venues across the capital. The annual festival takes place during October and incorporates over 800 different restaurants from around the capital. The Gourmet Odyssey is a hugely popular feature, taking diners to three top restaurants to sample a different course at each. Or you can take the Tapas Tour of London’s top tapas bars – Fernandez & Wells, Copita and Barrica, El Pirata, El Pirata Detapas and Ametsa with Arzak Instruction included. Added to these are the Cicchetti Trails which take in the best Spanish, Italian and Japanese food and take place over the weekends of the festival. Some of London’s finest foodies are taking part in the festival including Angela Hartnett, Theo Randall, Mark Sargeant and Jason Atherton. And there’s a special Eat Film at BAFTA 199 Piccadilly event hosted by Jonathan Ross.
