The second annual Marylebone Food Festival took place from 24th to 28th April 2019 in celebration of the abundance and variety of food and drink in Marylebone, from top Michelin star restaurants and artisan cafes to speciality food shops and quirky cocktail and wine bars.
A partnership between The Portman Estate and The Howard de Walden Estate, the festival threw the spotlight on the culinary wealth and variety of this pocket of London. The five-day event kicked off with The Marylebone Menu – the ultimate dinner party, a headline ticketed event for 120 on Wednesday 24th April which sold out in just over 24 hours. Some of Marylebone’s and of course London’s most celebrated chefs, food personalities and culinary establishments joined forces to cook an eight-course feast accompanied by wine in St Mary’s Church on York Street, a striking, Grade II listed Georgian building in the centre of Marylebone.
The Marylebone Menu was just the beginning – the following four days saw a plethora of other top food and drink establishments in the area hosting exclusive events and menus, collaborations and experiences highlighting Marylebone as one of London’s most celebrated and culinary diverse destinations.
