Blumen-Brilliant! Heston Blumenthal To Open The Fat Duck in Melbourne

By Iro Kotsimbos - 31 Mar 2014

Urban Listers, the rumours are true…Heston Blumenthal is coming to Melbourne! 

This morning it was confirmed that Blumenthal, famous for his stellar yet whacky style of cooking, will be opening The Fat Duck at Crown in Melbourne, taking over the space that was once Breezes.

In typical Heston fashion, the superstar chef managed to stun us all by announcing that he was temporarily closing the original Fat Duck restaurant in Bray, United Kingdom, and relocating the entire team in order to open Melbourne's The Fat Duck in February 2015. Even some of the interiors will be making the trip!

The Fat Duck Melbourne will be Heston's first international restaurant, running for six months before it transforms into another spectacular dining space, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. Bookings open in September and considering that the space will only fit 45 people each for lunch and dinner services respectively, The Fat Duck is guaranteed to be the hottest restaurant in town.

It's still a year away but we can't wait!
