Gastronomous owns and manages London’s most successful restaurant festival.
Founded in 2009, LRF takes place across London annually, every October, and involves 450 of the capital’s most exciting restaurants. Some 50,000 people take part in either ticketed restaurant experiences or the Festival Menu programme run in partnership with OpenTable.
Gastronomous manage LRF end-to-end creating over 60 memorable experiences held in restaurants that are ‘taken over’ for the duration. These include Gourmet Odysseys, Restaurant Hopping-Tours, Ultimate Gastronomic Weekends, Chef-Hosted Tasting Menus and more. For our customers it’s a fantastic way to try out lots of restaurants in a fun and engaging way and for the 15 Gastronomous clients who sponsor LRF there are myriad benefits.
Amex, the headline sponsor since 2010 – and recently confirmed until 2024 – get the exclusive Presale on tickets so Card members get ‘Access’; drinks brands – such as Remy Martin and Estrella Galicia – get their products in the hands, and mouths, of valuable consumers and also the restaurant trade while landlords – including Crown Estate, Battersea Power Station – get the light shone on their assets as we host experiences on their patch.
It was the success of LRF, founded by a Gastronomous partner, that served as the catalyst for starting the Gastronomous agency in 2015.
