Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is backing a campaign to support the capital’s food and hospitality sector as it continues to recover after the third national lockdown. London Eats celebrates the very best culinary delights central London has to offer and promises everything from cheap street food, fine dining and food markets to drinks festivals, exclusive interviews, food trails, surprise tannoy announcements on the Tube and the unveiling of new restaurant and street food market openings.
At the official launch Mayor Sadiq Khan was joined by celebrity chefs and successful restaurateurs, Monica Galetti and Angela Hartnett MBE . A statement from the Mayor said: “The capital is the engine of the UK’s economy, but our retail, hospitality, culture and nightlife have been impacted hugely by COVID-19. By getting out and supporting them, while following public health advice, we can protect central London’s unique eco-system of shops, hospitality and world-leading cultural venues and boost our economy.”
London Eats will also be highlighting a wide variety of different food and drink events coming to the capital in the coming months, including the opening of Borough Market on Sundays for the first time in its history; the return of the Southbank Centre’s food market; the reopening of KERB Seven Dials Market; a three-week rosé wine festival coming to Covent Garden; and the opening of Imad’s Syrian Kitchen on Kingly Court in London’s Soho.
