The world’s greatest restaurant festival returned this week for its tenth year.

Check out Durban’s and Toronto’s festivals in July, Stockholm’s and Rome’s in September, and Melbourne’s and Mumbai’s in November.
The London restaurant line-up this year includes Le Gavroche, Club Gascon, Salt Yard & Spice Market and Mahiki among many many others.
