Food: British Airways’ pop-up restaurant

Official airline of the London 2012 games, British Airways is creating a pop-up restaurant prior to the Olympics this summer.

Flight BA2012 (modeled on the interior of a typical British Airways plane cabin) will be open for two weeks and situated in the East London enclave of Shoreditch.

Overseen by The Fat Duck owner Heston Blumethal, chef Simon Hulstone will prepare a three-course menu inspired by British Airways menus that date back to 1948 – this food will also be served to first-class passengers onboard between the months of July and September.  In addition to the in-flight style dining, a gallery and cinema will showcase the finest of British art and film talent, as part of the Great Britons initiative.

With our own London offices situated in the heart of East London, a stone’s throw from the Olympic action this summer, keep your eyes peeled for more cultural happenings before and during the official games.

The restaurant will run until April 17th with limited availability – you can get booking via BA’s Facebook page.
