Time Out Melbourne

After Christmas, Heston Blumenthal and the whole Fat Duck team will shut the Bray restaurant and in February, migrate to Melbourne for six months. At the end of the Fat Duck’s residency, the crew will head back to England and re-open the Bray restaurant which will have had a half-year spruce up in the team’s absence. They’ll leave behind a permanent restaurant more alike to his London restaurant, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. Brace yourself for a bookings war, Melbourne. It’s going to be vicious.

Opens February 2015.
