Champagne Laurent-Perrier Gourmet Odyssey

August 15, 2014

LifestyleRestaurants & Bars | by Vicky Ilankovan

Who doesn’t love to eat out? Especially in a city like London, internationally renowned for its diversity of gastronomic delights, spanning continents in mouthfuls, through establishments ranging from Michelin-star restaurants to honest local eateries. London has it all, making deciding where to go for a great meal out a Tantulus-esque endeavour, with so many fantastic choices remaining just out of reach. The options are endless and no matter where you go, someone in your group is going to be disappointed. However, this does not need to be the case.

London Restaurant Festival is back for its sixth consecutive year, again partnering with Champagne Laurent-Perrier to deliver Gourmet Odyssey tours from 8th – 27th October.

Guests will be driven across town to a drinks reception and three top dining establishments in fleets of golden London Restaurant Festival Routemaster buses; they will have their first course in one, their main in another and their dessert in a third. Each course will be expertly paired with a glass of bubbles from the range of Laurent-Perrier champagnes to ensure that all on board experience the Brut, Ultra Brut, Cuvée Rosé and Vintage 2004.

Still not enough choice? Have no fear. This year, Laurent-Perrier will be guiding not one but three Gourmet Odyssey experiences: a wander round East London’s trendy venues; a perusal of the capital’s finest hotel restaurants; and an exploration of America-inspired eateries.

From the well-versed London foodie who can never quite settle on one restaurant, to the gourmandising newbie in town wishing to discover what this city has to offer, Gourmet Odyssey is the perfect opportunity to sample the capital’s cuisine in style.
