Gordon Ramsay Plane Food

Gordon Ramsay Plane Food

Map
London Heathrow Airport, Terminal 5, London, England UB7 9HB, United Kingdom

Britain’s famous bad-boy chef fine dining outpost is a smart stop if you have a lengthy layover (Suffolk pork belly with apple compote, perhaps) or are literally on the fly (see the Plane Picnic to-go menu). The décor is decidedly aerodynamic—a huge winglike structure hovers above the main dining room. If you have time, sit back with a champagne cocktail at the bar and take in some of the airport’s best runway and skyline views.

The Chef: Best-known stateside for his expletive-filled Fox reality show Hell’s Kitchen, pugnacious perfectionist Gordon Ramsay claims no fewer than 16 Michelin stars and 15-plus fine restaurants.

Fast Food 411: Ramsay kicked it down a notch with his London pubs (The Narrow, Warrington, and Devonshire), but made his cooking even more accessible in 2008 with Plane Food, located past security in Heathrow’s Terminal 5. There’s a reasonable sit-down à la carte menu, but it also sells gourmet “plane picnics” for takeout.

What to Order: Picnic fixins’ include tiger prawn salad with soy sesame dressing; truffle-laced roast beef sandwiches; pear cheesecake tart.
