About The London Restaurant Festival

The London Restaurant Festival is a unique event that takes place in the British Capital and has nearly 500 participating venues. The event tries to give people a chance to taste different menus of restaurants that they normally would not go to. Basically, the festival is an effort to make dining out an experience to remember, while giving a boost to the exposure of the participating restaurants. The participating restaurants create special menus that usually have reduced prices and offer customers the best of their dishes. People who attend the festival can choose from any of the different restaurants, cuisines and budgets available at the festival. There are also debates, talks and demonstrations to help publicize the event.

    The London Restaurant Festival was started in 2009 and has grown tremendously in popularity and participants. The event was a brain child of Fay Maschler and Simon Davis. Nearly 400 venues participated in the event and 10,000 meals were served during the first time the event was organised. The next year saw an increase in participants, and 600 restaurants took part in the event as 30,000 meals were sold. The event has showcased London as a top notch culinary destination and has provided customers with experiences that they never knew existed in the city.
