The cool thing about British chef Heston Blumenthal, who one often suspects sports his Michelin accolades affixed to heavy gold chains worn just under his chef’s jacket, is that you can seemingly track him down in any major city around the world and he’ll be happy to talk about how much he’d like to open a restaurant there. He’s opening in New York, definitely, maybe, and now also in Sydney or Melbourne. “I would like to think this will happen in the next three or so years, I haven’t got anything yet, but it is definitely on the radar,” he tells the Daily Telegraph, going on to say that he could relocate to the country permanently, and that Europe “is all about snobbery,” so there’s that.
