Gordon Ramsay Plane Food restaurant at London Heathrow Terminal 5 has reopened today, Monday 14 August 2017, after a refurbishment.
The restaurant first opened in March 2008. It was groundbreaking in two respects. First, for raising the bar for airport dining with such a well known chef committing to an airport restaurant where there are limitations on how food can be prepared. It also introduced well publicised dedicated takeaway “picnics” for eating in-flight. Heston Blumenthal followed suit with The Perfectionists Cafe at London Heathrow Terminal 2.
The new restaurant promises a new Asian bar with dishes prepared before guests, a new cocktail bar and a newly refurbished dining area with refreshed menus which can be used for private events.
There is also a new take-on-board Picnic Menu with breakfast, vegetarian, fish and meat options.
We look forward to trying out the new restaurant this month. We’ve always been impressed with it and it can beat the BA lounges for both ambiance and quality of food.
To mark the launch, the restaurant has launched a social media competition whereby you win a trip to Las Vegas if you follow Plane Food on Twitter, and tweet Gordon Ramsay a picture of a home prepared international dish with the hashtag #ReadyForTakeOff by Monday 21 August 2017.
