Restaurants are becoming less interested in fine dining and moving towards simplicity, according to owner and founder of Harden's Restaurant Guides, Peter Harden.
He put the move down to being diner-led and the fact that customers are moving away from food that is "arbitrary and unrealistic". "I think the level of pretentiousness of London is shifting downwards," he said.
He added that what is also coming to the fore are restaurants where diners have a limited choice, such as Mayfair's Burger & Lobster, Le Relais de Venise and Bubbledogs, which serves only hot dogs and Champagne."
