Updated 13/12/18 - Spuntino Heathrow is now open
What: Spuntino Heathrow
In a nutshell: Trendy Soho small plates in an airport.
Summing it all up: From humble beginnings in 2011 to a Soho institution, Spuntino charmed Londoners with their American-inspired small plates and counter dining. Now, they’re taking things in a slightly different direction, with a second restaurant with a new brunch and takeaway menu - in Heathrow Terminal 3.
Back in 2011, small plates were all the rage in the London, and Soho’s American-inspired Spuntino was leading the charge with its truffled toasts and dainty beef sliders. Fast forward to today, and the trendy 27-cover restaurant is making quite a leap from its W1 location, with a new sister branch in none other than the furiously busy Heathrow Terminal 3.
The plan is to offer a “bespoke airport breakfast and takeaway menu” to the millions of us that go through the terminal every year, with a shiny new brunch menu whipped up just for the occasion - though it’ll still be all about the small plates. There’ll also be a new children’s menu (including "Little Ceasar salad"), plus options to take away (handy for those of us needing to sprint to our gate).
On the menu will be...
- Truffled Egg Toast (£7) and Denver Omelette (£9.50) for breakfast
- Proper English Breakfast (£12.50) - available all day
- Mac’n’cheese (£8.50)
- Spicy Jackfruit burger (£11.50)
- Salami, caper and chilli pizza (£12)
On the drinks front, there will be wines, craft beer and cocktails that include New York Sour, Spuntino Bloody Mary and The Ted Damson - that's Wybrowa vodka, Sipsmith sloe gin, lemon and rhubarb bitters.
The new spot won’t have a popcorn machine like the Rupert Square branch, but they will be showing off a doughnut maker, a fancy mural by Neal Fox and “roller skating hosts” - which is exactly what it sounds like.
