gastronauts.jpgThe Telegraph tracks a bunch of young people — aka "gastronauts" — that are London's "new breed of restaurant-goer." How did these people come to be? Blame America: "Whereas eating out, fine dining, the entire 'culinary experience' used to be the domain of the well-off, middle-aged middle class, now it's cool to be young and curious about food. It began in New York, where a new restaurant seemingly sprang up every day, but now the revolution has crossed the Atlantic to London, aided by blogs, Twitter and Facebook." [Telegraph]
