Celebrity chef and owner of The Fat Duck and The Hinds Head at Bray, Berkshire, Heston Blumenthal, is to join forces with Mandarin Oriental. Together they will create a new restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London, to open in the Autumn of 2010. Blumenthal’s first restaurant to open outside of the village of Bray will feature the chef’s inimitable style of culinary alchemy with a menu heavily influenced by his ongoing research and discovery of historic British gastronomy. Seating 140 guests, it will serve lunch, dinner and afternoon tea. The kitchen will be headed by Ashley Palmer Watts who has worked with Blumenthal at The Fat Duck for nine years in the capacity of Group Executive Chef.
