London, England

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

When the menu reads nearly like a history book – circa 1670 (Powdered Duck Breast) and circa 1830 (Hereford Ribeye), you know that you’ve arrived at a very unique culinary destination. But then, Heston Blumenthal, the name says it all.

Legendary Chef

The legendary chef,  founder of The Fat Duck which has secured a place in culinary history as a ‘temple to British cuisine’, is no stranger to Londoners or tourists. With a slew of global television appearances in his portfolio, Blumenthal has come to epitomize the best of British gastronomy. Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, his latest venture devoted to traditional British cuisine, was opened in 2011, won a Michelin star in 2012 and again in 2014.

Traditional cuisine with a modern twist

Blumenthal is known for his artistic presentation of food as well as for respecting the time-honoured traditions of his nation’s culinary history. You have to see the Meat Fruit (circa 1500) to believe it. A delicate chicken liver mousse encased in a textured (!) gelatin coat resembling a mandarin has won the hearts of diners and critics, alike.

If restaurants could be deemed as heritage monuments, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal would surely be on the list.
