High End: Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
For the full Blumenthal experience, head to his elegant restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel overlooking Hyde Park where the "culinary alchemist" uses his innovative cooking techniques to reinvent historic British recipes. The result: highly imaginative dishes like meat fruit, powdered duck breast and brown bread ice cream at equally high prices.

Low End: The Perfectionists' Cafe
Good food, served fast is the aim of Blumenthal's new restaurant in Heathrow's Terminal 2 where he has deconstructed Britain's favourite dishes to get to the root of what makes them delicious. Expect a "Three-finger Burger", liquid nitrogen ice cream and fish 'n' chips made with next-generation beer batter and served with an atomiser that can be sprayed in the air or on your food to re-create the smell of an authentic British chip shop.
