Gatwick and Heathrow airports will add restaurants by two of Britain’s most famous celebrity chefs this summer.
Jamie Oliver is set to open The Diner at Gatwick’s South Terminal in August. The restaurant will pay homage to “great American comfort food, serving up honest home-cooked dishes in a relaxed and vibrant setting”, and will join an existing Leicester Square outlet under the brand.
It will be one of Gatwick’s largest restaurants, measuring over 6oo sqm and serving 278 covers, with dishes including a Super Food Breakfast, Naughty Chocolate Pancakes, Jamie’s Insanity Burger, and Jamie’s Super Corn and Quinoa Salad.
There will also be a grab and go deli section, with choices including wraps, salads and burritos.
Meanwhile at Heathrow Terminal 5 Gordon Ramsay will re-open his Plane Food Outlet next month, following a revamp.
There will be a new Asian bar with open kitchen, as well as a cocktail bar and newly styled dining room with a space which can be turned into a semi-private dining area.
Plane Food will also launch a new grab and go section – “a new pre-prepared food offering ensuring that those short of time, can still enjoy a Gordon Ramsay dining experience 40,000 feet in the air”.
The restaurant’s core menu will be updated, with dishes including rib beef burger with chimichurri mayo, Creedy carver confit duck leg, and dry aged ten ounce rib-eye steak with Café de Paris butter.
