FIRST EDIBLE MAP OF LONDON
OpenTable, the world’s leading restaurant booking service, is giving Londoners a chance to taste their way through the capital’s boroughs with the first edible map of the city.
On Tuesday 2nd July, those visiting King’s Cross between 12pm and 5pm will be able to take a bite into the flavours of London from OpenTable’s interactive edible map billboard. To celebrate London’s vibrant diversity of cuisines from Turkish to Japanese, the map will feature a selection of canapé style dishes from around the world paired with the boroughs in which they’re most associated, for diners to take away.
The Research Behind “The Edible Map”
Adrian Valeriano, VP EMEA, said,
London is such an exciting city to dine in and explore. The choice of restaurants and cuisines available are ever evolving, constantly delighting diners whether they are local residents or those visiting the city. Our research highlights how this diversity shows itself in every borough, with beloved dishes and world-class restaurants found the length and breadth of London. We are excited to bring this to life with the edible map installation and to ensure that whether you are looking for an award winning restaurant, newly opened hot spot, or a casual dinner with friends, OpenTable can help you find the right restaurant for anything.
To determine the flavour of each borough, OpenTable conducted exclusive research among two thousand residents and frequent visitors to the city. With the majority of diners in Lambeth dreaming of Turkish delights and Tower Hamlets most associated with the best Bangladeshi biryani, OpenTable’s edible map will share Londoner’s love for global eats.
Sounds fun right? So before you decide where to eat tomorrow (2nd of July 2019) why not visit Kings Cross and the Edible Map of London, courtesy of OpenTable. Do let me know how it goes!! And how it compares to my favourite summer adventure about town (Books About Town 2014).
