Heathrow has developed into much more than a mere airport, it is also a world-class dining destination. Their latest culinary collaboration has brought in Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton to create a new VIP menu in the exclusive lounge.
The new menu will boast signature dishes out of Atherton’s esteemed restaurants including Pollen Street Social and Berners Tavern. These offerings will be updated monthly to highlight only the freshest locally-sourced ingredients in Atherton’s British cuisine.
John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Heathrow, said, “I can still remember the first time I ate in one of Jason’s restaurants – I went straight out and bought his recipe book so that I could try them out at home. I am thrilled that our VIP passengers can experience the real thing, the very best in British cuisine, when they travel through Heathrow. From the minute a passenger arrives, to the moment they board their flight, Heathrow’s VIP experience offers a seamless, private and luxurious journey through the airport – now complemented with the culinary masterpieces from the brilliant Jason Atherton.”
Jason elaborated, “Having experienced the Heathrow VIP offering first hand, I’ve always been impressed with how the service transforms the way you travel and so I was delighted to help make the dining experience a true occasion for passengers. With the help of my team and the Heathrow VIP chefs, we’ve created a range of exciting dishes to suit even the most experienced palate; we hope this will enhance the premium experience when travelling through the VIP suite at Heathrow.”
Access to Atherton’s eats will be available to Heathrow VIP customers, meaning hose traveling on First or Business class flight tickets with any airline.
