Heston Blumenthal for Heathrow Terminal 2

Article content

10 March 2014 by Alex Stewart

June 2014 will see multi-award winning chef Heston Blumenthal open the Perfectionists' Café in the newly redeveloped Heathrow Terminal 2; the restaurant will be located immediately after security, when passengers enter the Terminal 2 departure lounge.

The Perfectionists' Café, which will be fast, friendly and informal, has been under development for over a year, focusing on the specific requirements of guests and travellers in an airport terminal.

Heston said, 'The demands of an airport outlet are quite different from our other restaurants. Some guests will have very little time to spend with us and others, in transit or with longer check-ins, will have time to linger. The restaurant will of course cater to both, but we want to deliver food that is fun and familiar - food that is stimulating to the palate and at the same time easy to enjoy.

The result will be a café that serves exceptional food, fast. The menu will focus on some of Britain's favourite dishes and embrace the eccentricity of British invention. For example, the burgers will be made by grinding all the meat grains in the same direction to maximise the juiciness of the meat, traditional fish and chips will be served with the ultimate crunchy batter and the kitchen will boast the first ever wood burning pizza oven in an airport.

The core concept though will be nostalgic, harking back to the heyday of 1960's passenger flights, when air travel was deemed glamorous and travellers dressed in their best to fly.
