Heston Blumenthal will launch a new restaurant at the new Terminal 2 when it opens in June 2014.
The concept and menu, currently being developed, will showcase Heston’s love for nostalgia and celebrate his pride of all things British, matching Heathrow’s “Best of Britain” theme for the new terminal.
“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.
The new Terminal 2 is the next major step in the transformation of Heathrow, and will continue the progress the airport has made in recent years with the opening of Terminal 5 and the refurbishment of Terminals 1, 3 and 4. £11bn has been spent on the airport over the last decade and passenger satisfaction scores now rank Heathrow as among the world’s very best large airports.
