London Restaurant Festival Awards 2016 - the winners

This year's London Restaurant Festival drew to a close with an awards ceremony last night at 1901 at the Andaz London Hotel, Liverpool Street. In addition to celebrating the winners of various festival menus including Cinnamon Kitchen, Treadwell’s and Oxo Tower Brasserie they also gave out a series of awards covering the year in the London restaurant industry. And it was a pretty good year for Jordan Frieda and Tim Siadatan from Padella and Trullo - they walked away with two awards and two runners-up mentions.
