Eleven of the capital's leading chefs will take over the London Eye this October transforming one of its capsules into a mini restaurant as part of the 2010 London Restaurant Festival.
Now in its second year, the London Restaurant Festival was founded by the London Evening Standard's food critic Fay Maschler and Simon Davis, who together run restaurant consultancy A Private View, as a citywide celebration of dining out.
It will run across the capital for two weeks from 4-18 October and is designed to raise the profile of restaurants involved and drive footfall.
Chefs including Gordon Ramsay, Angela Hartnett, Richard Corrigan, Giorgio Locatelli and Francesco Mazzei will cook for one night each at the pop up restaurant on the London Eye which can accommodate up to 10 diners.
Last year, Ramsay's restaurant was auctioned off for £23,000 and the chef has committed to auction off his night again this year with proceeds going to charity StreetSmart.
Chefs involved include:
• Dean Yasharian, executive chef, Bar Boulud
• Tong Chee Hwee, head chef, Hakassan
• Gary Lee, head chef, The Ivy
• Richard Corrigan, chef patron, Corrigan's Mayfair
• Francesco Mazzei, chef patron, L'Anima
• Georgio Locatelli, chef patron, Locanda Locatelli
• Angela Hartnett, chef patron, Murano
• Joël Antunes, executive chef, Brasserie Joel
• Kevin Gratton, head chef, Hix Soho
• Jitin Joshi, executive chef, Benares
• Gordon Ramsay
