Wondertree, a brand new casual all-day dining concept, opened 4 June at Heathrow’s Terminal 2. Wondertree is a collaboration between Russel Joffe, co-founder of giraffe restaurants and The Restaurant Group plc (TRG).
The largest restaurant in the brand new terminal, Wondertree occupies over 5,000 sq ft with 190 covers and has been designed to take advantage of the airfield view over the UK’s hub airport.
As part of the airport’s commitment to revolutionise the passenger dining experience, Wondertree’s design has set out to enhance the customer journey through a choice of either self-service café with food to-go, or relaxed table service dining.
Food will be cooked to order from an open plan kitchen featuring daily fresh breads, morning pastries and global salads. Passengers can order a coffee or beer through to a full family meal from a menu that includes artisan flat breads, two handed sandwiches, small and large plates as well as all day breakfast dishes, smoothies, freshly-pressed juices and shakes. Other drinks include individually prepared drip fairtrade coffee, loose-leaf teas, independent wines, ciders and a range of six different jugs of sangria.
The quick service café combined with relaxed restaurant dining aims to serve all dishes within 15 minutes to appeal to time poor travellers.
Russel Joffe, co-founder of giraffe restaurants comments:
“I’m hugely excited to be opening Wondertree, the terminal’s largest restaurant site. We aim to deliver on quality, efficiency and great value dishes in a unique environment morning, noon and night – we have achieved similar results with TRG before and hope Wondertree will share the same success as our airport giraffe restaurants.”
Nick Ayerst, Managing Director, TRG Concessions comments:
“When challenged by Heathrow to create an iconic restaurant for the new Terminal 2, we approached Russel Joffe to collaborate with us following our highly successful partnership with giraffe in the airport. Wondertree embraces the new generation of eating and drinking and promises to provide a unique experience for Heathrow passengers.”
