In 2007, Simon and his friend the distinguished restaurant critic Fay Maschler established the restaurant consultancy, A Private View Ltd. It combined their shared passion for restaurants, and most importantly their understanding of the need to do things to the highest of standards.
Simon and Fay also created the idea for The London Restaurant Festival, which they launched in 2009. The LRF lifts the lid on London’s finest cooking and aims to celebrate eating out across the city. It is now recognised as a significant feature in the catering calendar.
