    Heathrow launches food festival:)

    Heathrow airport is running a three week-long international food festival, with attractions including a Bollywood violinist in Gordon Ramsey Plane Food at T5, and global coffee taste testings at Starbucks outlets.

    Dubbed Destination Feastival, the event runs from October 17 to November 6, with nearly 60 restaurants, bars and cafes taking part.

    Thanks for sharing! I'll be at LHR next week (T4, off the MSP) and the following week (T5, off to STR)...and just about every week after that, but it won't matter! ;)

    Thanks for sharing! I wonder if this will inspire similar efforts in some of the other terminals. I know the food options are probably best in T5, but think they might be able to have some fun with the lower cost (class?) options in T1.

    oops - guess I should have read the article more closely. It looks like the other terminals are indeed involved!

    We found that Rhubarb @ T3 was also very good quality, very stylish, upscale and modern.

    Indeed, the food festival @ LHR stretches the whole airport operation and could be fun to partake!
