Diners eager to experience Heston Blumenthal’s first London restaurant can start reserving tables from tomorrow, ahead of an opening date of the end of January.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, located within the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, had been due to open in late 2010, but the launch date has now been set for January 31, 2011, with reservations open from 9am on December 1.
Mandarin Oriental says that “As we anticipate telephone lines to be extremely busy, we highly recommend visiting dinnerbyheston.com for availability and online reservations”.
The restaurant will be headed up by Ashley Palmer-Watts, group executive chef at Blumenthal’s Fat Duck for eleven years, and will feature “simple modern dishes, inspired by our historic gastronomic past and celebrating the very best of British produce”.
