Heston at Heathrow

Fat Duck devotees might be interested to know that celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal is planning a new venture - at Heathrow airport. Sam Hetti (18 Nov’13)

The venue will be the new £2.5 billion Terminal 2 (The Queen’s Building) which opens in June 2014 and will include a bar and a deli. The fare will be toned down; fish and chips, pizza and burgers but with a Blumenthal twist as featured in his TV show In Search of Perfection.

He follows the lead of Gordon Ramsay who landed his Plane Food outlet in Heathrow's Terminal Five. The new restaurant plans to despatch "multi-sensory" dining to customers within 11 minutes of orders being placed, as befits Heathrow’s business .  

 "This is an incredible project,” said Blumenthal. “There are so many different elements to consider when people are travelling. We want to deliver a broad spectrum of easy-to-enjoy, familiar dishes, from fish and chips to pizza. When we made the  In Search of Perfection series we spent hours researching the temperature of a pizza oven or the crunch of batter; it’s this inspiration that is behind the menu at Heathrow – with some truly British eccentricity thrown in for good measure."

Heathrow's Terminal 2, back in the 50's

“Our brand new, £2.5bn terminal will not only showcase the best of the UK’s art and engineering talent, but also one of its greatest culinary minds. This new restaurant will certainly introduce a unique and original dimension to the airport eating experience at Heathrow’ said Muriel Zingraff-Shariff, Heathrow’s retail director.

Fast food chain Leon and retailer John Lewis are also set to join Terminal 2 eager to capitalise on its expected 20 million annual passenger traffic .
