Explore the best of Mayfair’s eateries this October with the London Restaurant Festival

Discover Mayfair’s finest food destinations this October as the London Restaurant Festival comes to town. Returning for its thirteenth year, this annual event showcases delicious offerings from some of our culinary favourites; it’s the perfect opportunity to explore brand new eateries as well as rediscovering some of the area’s long standing restaurants with re-envisioned menus. 

Whilst a six-course tasting menu tour across Jamavar, Café Biltmore and Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill has sold like hot cakes, diners can still take advantage of the latter’s unique ‘Festival’ set menu, or try the Asian-inspired set menu offering available at Lucky Cat by Gordon Ramsay, both situated conveniently on Grosvenor Square.

For those keen for a gourmet Chinese experience, Kai is a must-try; serving sophisticated Nanyang Chinese cooking with a diverse twist in its luxe space on South Audley Street, guests can feast on an exclusive tasting menu. And with five heated, outdoor tables, you can choose to sit indoors or outdoors for your meal whatever the weather. 

Alternatively, you can book tickets for a four-course dinner at Native by Browns, offering British game, rare breed and foraged foods with an ethical and sustainable twist. The little sister of Native on Brook Street, this stylish offshoot is described by its founders as ‘innovative, wild and sustainable’ – making it the perfect partner for forever fashionable Browns. 

And finally, take the opportunity to enjoy a variety of mini experiences via a one-off evening at Mercato Mayfair, with table arranging from McQueen’s flower school and Champagne tasting from all-new bar Stripes. Mercato Mayfair is the second site from Mercato Metropolitano and is housed in North Audley Street’s regenerated St Mark’s Church. Offering an abundance of dishes, from Italian pizzas and pastas to Asian fusion and Middle Eastern cuisine, this striking  building houses two levels of food stalls and bars to explore. So what are you waiting for? Whether you’re having lunch with friends or a romantic date night, The London Restaurant Festival is an unparalleled chance to explore the best in Mayfair’s culinary experiences.
