It's a pleasure to announce the debut of the first new Eater site in four years and our first ever publication outside of North America — Eater London. Like its sister sites in 23 markets across America and Canada, Eater London will serve as the go-to destination for news about the local food scene, offering industry intel — openings, closings, chef shuffles, and more — maps and guides, in depth analysis and insight, and a good amount of wit and gossip.
Run by highly talented local writer and restaurant obsessive Adam Coghlan (Evening Standard Food Magazine, London Restaurant Festival), it launches today with some major scoops, a brand new Eater 38 and heatmap, and a special package focusing on the state of dining in London today. On tap for later this week: more breaking news, more dish and neighborhood (sorry, neighbourhood) guides, and writing from legends Marina O’Loughlin and Grace Dent.
Why, out of all of the innovative culinary capitals in the world did we settle on London, a city that was until recently, as Adam writes, “the gastronomic laughing stock of international cities”? Because now, in 2017, London’s restaurant scene is dynamic, it’s multi-cultural, it’s boundary pushing, it’s filled with chefs taking inspiration from culinary movements around the world and translating them for this vibrant place. Also, everyone speaks English.
We’re excited. We hope you’re excited. Please check in on Eater London early and often — especially if planning a trip across the pond — follow the site on Twitter and Facebook, sign up for the newsletter, share your best British food photos on Instagram, and/or send Adam tips, rants, and (of course) raves to email@example.com.
