hestonopeningThe influx of American chefs to London may soon see the tide turn in the other direction if a story in this weekend's Telegraph has any merit. It seems that Heston Blumenthal is now in talks to open a restaurant in Manhattan.

Blumenthal featured in the paper over the weekend as writer Matthew Norman attempted to try a recipe from Heston's new book, Heston Blumenthal At Home. In his piece he mentions, almost as an aside that '[Heston] is off to New York soon to discuss a new joint at a Mandarin hotel, the chain for which he opened Dinner in Knightsbridge a year ago.'

We'll presume that's the Mandarin Oriental on Columbus Circle. If he does replace the current restaurant there, Asiate, it'll be Blumenthal's first restaurant with a high-rise view as the space overlooks Central Park on the 35th floor.

Last year Heston told an interviewer that he'd 'love to open up a restaurant in New York.' Looks like his dream is coming true.
