The Ledbury and The Araki will go head to head in the inaugural Harden’s London Restaurant Awards.

Also making the shortlist for the Chapel Down award for Top Gastronomic Experience is Michel Roux Jnr’s Le Gavroche and The Typing Room

The Wolseley is the only restaurant nominated in two categories - best for business, and best breakfast or brunch.

Peter Harden, co-founder of Harden’s and host of the awards said: “Street-food vendors and London’s most famous chefs will rub shoulders at the new Harden’s London Restaurant Awards, as we recognise both the budget rising stars and veteran celebrity kitchens of the world’s most diverse, and increasingly its best, restaurant scene.”

The Harden’s London Restaurant Awards comprises a total of 12 categories – with nominees taken from those who performed best in the annual Harden’s restaurant survey.

The Awards will take place at The Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square on 12 September 2016.
