Heston Blumenthal at T2

Heathrow’s completely new Terminal 2, opening next June, continues to attract leading businesses, the latest being the multi-award winning chef Heston Blumenthal.

Still under wraps the concept and menu is currently being developed and will showcase Heston's love for nostalgia and celebrate his pride in all things British, including many much loved and familiar dishes.

The menu will feature some of Britain’s favourite meals inspired by his ‘In Search of Perfection’ TV series.  The notion of the restaurant will draw on all aspects of the chef’s inimitable and creative approach to cooking bringing a brand new dining dynamic to Heathrow.

"This is an incredible project,” Heston explains. "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".

Unlike the famous ‘Tavern in the Sky’ in the original T2, chef Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant is strictly airside. No non flying diners. Times have changed (see also BTN 4 November).
