Restaurant month at participating airports in the US

Finding exceptional airport food can be a daunting challenge for hurried travelers.

Thankfully, HMSHost is offering a chef-driven menu for the rest of May at more than 50 North American airports, creating a unique culinary experience for passengers.

Airport Restaurant Month first started back in October of 2014. The popularity grew, airports loved the feedback they received and now it’s offered twice a year in May and October.

In fact, HMSHost has had so much success that airports and restaurants have begun reaching out to them to join in on the event. Shayna Iglesias, HMSHost’s Director of Digital Marketing said the goal is to “bring an elevated dining experience to airport passengers.”

It’s all about fresh food and giving consumers “something new and different,” Iglesias said.

This is especially great for those frequent travelers tired of the same menu options.

With nearly 100 participating restaurant locations for May, there are several options for travelers to dine on superb food, whether they’re in the mood for something light or heavy.

The need for speedy service as well as fresh quality food inspired the meals available to travelers. HMSHost works with its partners several months in advance to create seasonal menus centered around as many local ingredients as possible. Some items like the salmon are not local, but the fruits and vegetables are, however.

Additionally, individual restaurants offer customized tasting menus that highlight their own flavors and dishes, which are also expertly paired with wine for those who desire a full dining experience.

Participating airports include: JFK, BWI, ATL, CLT, ORD, DFW, DEN, IAH, LAX, PBI, MCO, OAK, and many others in Canada and in the US.
