Le Caprice, a renowned London restaurant serving modern European cuisine, was recently named London’s Restaurant of the Year by the London Lifestyle Awards.Le Caprice dethroned last year’s winner, Searcy’s at the National Portrait Gallery, and beat runner-up and newcomer The Roof Garden’s Babylon restaurant for the title.
Le Caprice originally opened in 1947 in London’s West End by Mario Gallati, the same man who launched the famed Ivy, but the restaurant was relaunched under new management by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King in 1981.
The Piccadilly restaurant has been on the London scene for over 30 years now in its current form, and since its rebirth it has hosted celebrity clientele and remained one of the top restaurants in London.
This year, the annual London Lifestyle Awards were sponsored by Hot Diamonds, a high-end brand which makes silver and diamond jewelry. Over 4,000 businesses were in the running for the awards, and 207,000 public votes were cast to determine which businesses would win.
