Restaurateurs urged to sign up for London Restaurant Festival

Restaurateurs in the capital are urged to sign up for this year's London Restaurant Festival.

Now in its fifth year, the festival will run from 3 to 21 October and at restaurants across the capital with a series of new events scheduled for 2013. Previous years have seen chefs Jason Atherton, Michel Roux Jr, Pierre Koffmann and Richard Corrigan take part.

Founder Simon Davis said the aim of the London Restaurant Festival has always been to drive business into restaurants and increase covers.

"And this remains core. We want to encourage those taking part to enjoy as many restaurants as possible over the fortnight," he explained.

"All our activity encourages the idea of ‘restaurant-hopping' both with our Festival Menus and with our events: Tapas Tours, Graze, Cicchetti Trails and Gourmet Odysseys. It's about fun, food and festivity: a celebration of London's thriving restaurant scene."

New events to feature in the line-up of festival activities for the first time include Japanese Journey, which sees participants visit six Japanese restaurants in one day; and Shard Gourmet Odyssey, which includes a Champagne Laurent Perrier reception followed by a three course lunch served at Aqua, Hutong and The Atrium Bar, each serving a different course.

Tickets and reservations can be bought or made via, and when they go on sale next month. Visit for more information.
