Zagat's Pick of 30 Under 30 Londoners

Zagat's Pick of 30 Under 30 Londoners | OneTravel

 

 

 

 

Zagat has announced its first ever London 30 Under 30 list. Compiled by Zagat’s editorial team, the list spotlights up-and-coming chefs, managers, sommeliers and mixologists in the London area, all under the age of 30.


Says co-founder, co-chair and namesake, Tim Zagat, “We are proud to expand our 30 Under 30 series to London and congratulate this year’s honorees for their contributions to the local restaurant scene. These young men and women come from both the front of the house and the back. They represent the future of the English restaurant industry.”


Anyone even halfway familiar with London's current dining scene knows it's a deliciously happening place to be at the moment. From some of the world's most highly regarded and exclusive restaurants to humble but innovative street vendors (and everything edible in between), London is top of the foodie charts in all sorts of ways. Still, a bad reputation of tired and bored lingers from the past with those not as hip to today's Brit palate. Hopefully, with recognition from the likes of Zagat along with an Olympic zoom in on all things London this summer, attitudes towards what's to eat in London will finally begin to change.


Here's the London list of Zagat’s 2012 “30 Under 30 Winners” along with the winners' position and age:

  • Travel Footwear for Women: 3 Tried & True FavoritesComments: 0Rating: 0 / 0


  • By:Jen Westmoreland Bouchard, last post 09 Dec 2014
  • Choosing footwear for trips can be challenging. Of course, bringing the right gear to keep your feet comfortable depends on what you plan on doing during the trip and the climate of the place you’ll be staying. In addition to any “specialty” shoe I might need (hiking boots, for example), I always bring comfortable and versatile footwear that won’t slow me down. One suggestion I always give is to wear your travel shoes a lot before you leave to make sure that they are broken in and comfortable for your trip. Here are three types of shoes that have served me well over my years of traveling....read more
