Restaurant Crawl

Home > London > Food and Wine | Party Ideas
Published March 30th 2011

Enjoy the variety of a pub crawl minus the nasty hangover with this innovative culinary pursuit. Like its irresponsible cousin the pub crawl, a restaurant crawl involves participants travelling between several different restaurants throughout a single night.

Unlike a pub crawl, though, a restaurant crawl involves a bit of planning and preparation. Get the word out early so that you have an idea of group size and preferences. Ask your guests to suggest places when you invite them.

Once you know who is coming, you need to decide on restaurants. At the very least, you can try three different restaurants – one for entrees, one for main meals and one for dessert. If you have the time and inclination you can, of course, visit more. Consider the price, menu and formality of the place and try to combine restaurants that complement each other.

The cheapest and easiest option is to go to a dining precinct, where there are several different eateries located within close proximity. Otherwise, you might like to visit a selection of restaurants that you and your guests have been eager to trial.

Now that you've chosen your restaurants you can set an itinerary. Arrange for at least an hour at each restaurant and about half an hour plus travelling time between places. Phone ahead and make a reservation for your party, even if it is a casual place or you are coming during a quiet time, to ensure that you will be seated as soon as you arrive.

To make things easier for your guests, hand out copies of the itinerary, the menu for each restaurant and directions to each establishment.

Bon appétit!

Umm yum, I never considered food at a pub crawl. Very clever. I do like the idea. Ive never been good at pub crawls due to the drinking aspect. I cant drink alot and get dizzy.
