Perfectionists’ Café, London Heathrow
Inspired by a 2006 BBC television series called In Search of Perfection, which followed the research work of British superstar chef Heston Blumenthal (pictured here) and his development team, Blumenthal’s new Perfectionists’ Café will open in June at London Heathrow. Located immediately after security, where passengers enter the departures lounge of the airport’s newly redeveloped Terminal 2, it will celebrate some of Britain’s favorite dishes and embrace an element of culinary discovery (such as, for instance, hamburgers made by grinding the meat grains in the same direction to maximize juiciness). Fish and chips will be coated with an outstanding crunchy batter, and pizza will be baked in the airport’s first wood-burning oven. Expect fast, informal service. theperfectionistscafe.com.
