The Taste of London festival is spreading its culinary wings across the capital with twenty restaurants offering special menus and blinding deals so you can share in the festival excitement and extend the experience right through the last weekend in June. The Taste of London festival restaurants and deals are brilliant — see for yourself!
Atul Kochhar’s renowned Michelin-starred Indian restaurant Benares in Mayfair intends to entice you with a Taste of London platter menu for £25 or £30 if you’d like the special Taste of London cocktail. Nice.
Michelin-starred Chinese superstar Kai Mayfair gets in amongst it with a fine offer, £39 for a three-course meal with tasting-sized wines to match or £27 for three courses without the wines. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this generous restaurant has a menu with many dishes costing that much for a single dish, let alone three courses with wine. Grab this superb offer and quick.
Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Kitchen in the City is offering a fourteen course (yes you read that right) thirty canape feast for just £30, while the gorgeous Cinnamon Club in Westminster has entered the fray with an eight course tasting menu for £50. Both offers promise divine, inventive Indian cuisine in glorious settings.
Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill has come in with a cheeky fish and chips offer: sit in the Oyster Bar or on the Terrace and enjoy sublime fish and chips and a glass of Picpoul de Pinet wine for £17.75. Just so you know,
Picpoul de Pinet is a white wine, an anomaly in the Languedoc region where it is surrounded by miles of red wine grapes. It is made only from the Picpoul grape and is fruity and citrussy and, dare we suggest it, a perfect accompaniment to fish and chips and summer meals.
The Gordon Ramsay stable weighs in with two courses for £20 or three for £25 at the lovely York & Albany in Camden. This is great, seasonal modern European cuisine with a focus on the Mediterranean. And maze — Gordon Ramsay has a super deal as well, three courses for £25 (four for £36), based on the lunch bites and early supper menu, a parade of beautifully-presented and finely calibrated dishes.
Rhodes 24 restaurant is Michelin-starred splendour located atop Tower 42, soaring above the capital with breathtaking views and sublime modern cuisine. The Taste of London deal should be snapped up immediately: a three course set lunch for £24 and that’s not a misprint.
A dozen other Taste of London special offers await you here at toptable from some of the capital’s finest restaurants, Four O Nine in Clapham, The Modern Pantry in Clerkenwell, ORA restaurant in W1, l’Anima in Broadgate West, Roux at the Landau in Portland Place, Paramount atop Center Point, Corrigan’s Mayfair, l’Etranger in Kensington, Le Caprice in St James’s, Club Gascon in Smithfield, The Ritz (yes, really) in Piccadilly and a pair of offers from Tamarind in Mayfair.
