If you’re moving here this week (or have already relocated), you’re just in time for the London Restaurant Festival!  Spanning the 4th through 18th of October, this culinary event is an ideal way to recognize the restaurant scene and the diverse range of cuisines it has to offer, not to mention its top chefs of international renown.

Per the festival website:

“London Restaurant Festival is a citywide celebration of eating out, designed to showcase the extraordinarily diverse and exciting range of restaurants and drive footfall.

From 4-18 October 2010 food lovers can explore some of the capital’s finest cooking, from its high-profile Michelin-starred restaurants to coveted neighbourhood bistros.

* Enjoy a Festival Menu at any of the hundreds of participating restaurants

* Or buy tickets for one of this year’s Festival Events

StreetSmart is the chosen charity for the 2010 Restaurant Festival.”

From markets to debates, quizzes to awards, the LRF offers various events and, but of course, FOOD!  So if getting settled into your new London rental works up your appetite, save buying groceries and cooking at home for another day—eating out is all part of the local experience!
