Stop everything – and put 15 October 2010 in your diary. That’s when the booking lines for Heston Blumenthal’s first London restaurant open. The restaurant itself, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, will be opening its doors on 1 December 2010. The number to put on speed dial for then is 0207 201 3833.
Key news from today’s press release includes the details of two set meals for budget-conscious diners – a three course set lunch for £25 and a three course a-la-carte dinner from £55. There’s also the mention of three potential dishes from the menu - Bergamot cured mackerel salad, slow cooked short rib of beef and scallops with cucumber ketchup and peas
We rather like the sound of the restaurant’s main design feature a pulley system modelled on a 16th century design for the Royal British Court’s kitchens resembling the craftsmanship of an oversized watch, mechanically rotating a spit over an open fire.
