London is recouping its reputation as a comfort food capital, leading the way for a new style of borderless cuisine with a flood of high-end restaurant openings, led by international chefs mixing flavors and
traditions. Patrons looking for a sip are in luck as London’s experimental attitude is extended to the bar, sometimes even crossing over with innovative food and design collaborations. Culturally inspired and wired, the city is also home to London Food Tech Week.

Don’t call it international. A metropolitan melting pot of cultures, London is calling together a rush of diverse culinary talent. The city once known for its lackluster appetite for adventurous dining has been drawing new innovative and culturally inspired chefs to add to the tapestry of established names like Heston Blumenthal and Giorgio Locatelli.

If there’s one thing London covers well, it’s impressive ways and places to imbibe. The city’s innovative spirit conceives new bar and drink concepts often, among them a growing trend of dessert bars bringing mixologists and restaurateurs together in a new way.

Social or serious, London is made of culinary layers. There are countless ways to wine and dine in the Royal city. It’s one of the best cities for social dining experiences, easy online booking, and impressive delivery services. Now with programs like the first ever, fast-tracked, hands-on Vegan chef course in Europe, London is re-establishing itself as a modern foodie’s mecca.
