This October, London Restaurant Festival (LRF), in partnership with American Express ® , will offer the capital’s food lovers the chance to become the ultimate restaurant guru.

The team behind LRF are offering one lucky diner the chance to eat out for a year in some of the city’s best restaurants. In order to win, festival goers must snap a picture of their Festival Menu and tag @londonrestaurantfestival, with #restaurantguru. Unlocking one of London’s most exclusive restaurants each month, the winner and their guest will be able to enjoy the likes of Pollen Street Social, HIX Soho, Taberna de Mercado, and Barrafina throughout 2018.

The Festival Menus, in partnership with Bookatable, will offer unique dining experiences in some of the city’s best restaurants, from local favourites to Michelin-starred and glamorous affairs including Fera at Claridges, Marcus by Marcus Wareing, Tom’s Kitchen by Tom Aikins, Hakkasan, Galvin La Chapelle, OXO Tower, and Barbecoa.

“We started LRF in 2009 with the simple aim of encouraging people into our city’s astonishing array of restaurants with unique events, and we’ve curated some of the best with our Festival Menus,” says Simon Davis, Founder of the London Restaurant Festival. “From neighbourhood gems you may not have heard of to the legendary. Now you can win the chance to try the best over the next year. Festival Director Chris Wright adds: “It has been a bit of a rough ride for London’s restaurants with Brexit nerves and business rates over the last year. LRF helps support them. Last year, over 50,000 people enjoyed our Festival Menus in 350 of the capital’s greatest restaurants bringing in over £1.5 million revenue for the restaurants.
