Expanding our readership beyond national borders has long been a milestone goal at Foodable. Today, just over two years since the anniversary of Foodable’s official launch, we are proud to announce the day is finally here, with the rollout of London.
From old-world offerings to a new wave of upgraded (not to mention, highly acclaimed) ethnic concepts, it would be amateur for one to label or define London’s dining scene in a few words.
Weekend street food markets, a rather bustling breakfast scene, and a slew of offerings for any appetite or craving, may sound similar to that of another city at first glance but there’s no doubt that London has its own panache. The city stands tall with 704 Michelin-starred restaurants, 52 of which are labeled “Bib Gourmand,” proving you can get a good meal without spending a fortune.
What does Foodable’s London rollout mean for you?
In short: A new blog to bring you the most important, newsworthy food business happenings in the British market from local contributors, along with a regular lineup of original video content from London-based hosts and producers, including Foodable video correspondent Helen Hokin, a London local.
Readers will also enjoy an upcoming Foodable Top 25 ranking specifically geared toward London restaurants. So, whether you’re a local, a transplant/ex-pat, or simply visiting, we will be bringing you a restaurant ranking of the Top 25 establishments that resident diners in London are most talking about right now across 17 social media platforms.
With so many options on the dining front, these resources will help keep you in the know and give diners, restaurant owners and chefs directly targeted insight as to how local restaurants are stacking up amongst the competition.
Check out our London blog here, and stay tuned for more international coverage launching in 2016!
