HEATHROW TERMINAL 2
NAME The Perfectionists’ Café
OPENED June 4, 2014
DINING As the new restaurant of Heston Blumenthal, The Perfectionists’ Café showcases some of the Michelin Star chef’s trademark techniques, including the use of liquid nitrogen to make fresh ice cream (which Blumenthal pioneered in the late nineties). The restaurant also offers a selection of popular dishes in the UK.
RECOMMEND Try the Neapolitan style pizzas. The Perfectionists’ Café is home to Heathrow’s first wood-burning oven where pizzas can be cooked at the optimal temperatures. According to regulations, the true Neapolitan pizza is cooked at a high enough temperature to allow the base to cook at speed whilst ensuring that the toppings don't get hotter than 60°C.

Combine this with a choice of 16 signature sauces and five seasonings – there’s something for everyone! For those who prefer a healthier gourmet option, Wolfgang Puck Fresh Express is the way to go.
