Limo London

By: Devinder Patel

Book a Limo in London for your next Heathrow Airport Transfer and then sample some of the best food in the world at the end of your journey, when you get to Terminal 5.

Airport Transfers from Heathrow Airport now come with Haute Cuisine on demand thanks to innovative celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.

His aim to build the world's first Michelin Star airport restaurant at Heathrow Airport will come true since he spent ?2,000,000 (Two Million Pounds) on his new restaurant inside Terminal 5 called Plane Food.

The latest branch of his growing empire is in Terminal Five, opened to the world recently, and will fast become a must see destination with international wealthy travellers, in First and Business class. According to Nick Ziebland, BAA retail strategy director, who stated "I think we need to bring back some of the glamour of travel and make it almost a destination in its own right." Mr Ziebland then added: "I'm rather hoping they'll sit there, rich, comfortable and slightly bored and say, 'let's go and eat out'."

The restaurant seats up to 180 patrons and the menu matches the excellence of his award-winning Boxwood Caf?estaurant in the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge, London near Harrods and close to all of the 5-Star Hotels in the West End.

The restaurant apparently offers "fine dining with a New York twist" and Gordon's selected menu has an exclusive picnic style offer in order to tempt the taste buds of the rich and famous before they catch their BA flights.

Gordon Ramsay's concept designer Stuart Gillies was given the task of creating Plane Food. Before joining Gordon, Stuart worked with the ever acclaimed Angela Hartnett, and Stuart mixed old classic French dishes and modern Italian delicacies at The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair. Previous to that he had a year in Rome at the Lord Byron Hotel and also 3 years in Stockholm, Sweden.

Under the wing of Stuart, at Plane Food is Head Chef Nathan Johnson in the kitchen at Heathrow Terminal Five. Stuart's dishes have already been publicized well in many magazines/newspapers, and he even has frequent food shows in Great Britain and worldwide such as the Taste of London, The Restaurant Show and of course the Daily Telegraph's House & Garden Fair in London's Olympia.

BAA who run Heathrow Airport has given Ramsay a great lease (10 years) in comparison to 5 years for all of the other tenants there, since it wishes the restaurant lifts off as a huge attraction along with Prada and Tiffany at the new ?4.3 Billion building.

This restaurant will attract high spending CIPs which is an acronym for "commercially important passengers" which BAA desires and is keenly targeting.

Heathrow Airport is already the world's busiest airport and will now have its total number of passengers rise to 90 million per year. The main Terminal 5 building is the largest single span structure in Britain, and was designed by Lord Rogers and it is 400 metres long by 180 metres wide and 40 metres tall and has 105 lifts in total and the five storeys complex is bigger than Gatwick Airport, making it easily Europe's largest airport.
