BRITAIN’S best rated chef Heston Blumenthal will open a new restaurant at Heathrow’s Terminal 2 next June, serving up dishes like fish and chips, Heathrow said yesterday.

The outlet will open in the new £2.5bn terminal, dubbed The Queen’s Terminal, and follows on from Heathrow’s last major renovation Terminal 5.

“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,” Blumenthal, who has an array of Michelin stars, said.

The restaurant will be a tie-in with his hit BBC 2 TV series, In Search of Perfection, in which the intrepid chef puts his unique spin on traditional British grub.

“This new restaurant will certainly introduce a unique and original dimension to the airport eating experience at Heathrow” Heathrow’s retail director Muriel Zingraff-Shariff said.
