You've certainly heard of restaurant week. Well, HMSHost is kicking off a brand new Airport Restaurant Month at more than 60 restaurants inside dozens of airports across North America this May.
The exclusive single-plated seasonal menus available to time-strapped air travelers this month include a wide variety of dishes ranging from lighter options to hearty meals.
Although individual participating restaurants will offer special customized menus highlighting their own flavors and styles, some of the core mouthwatering items passengers can look forward to this spring include seared salmon served with honey roasted carrots, pesto yogurt, feta and Italian parsley as well as a spicy slaw burger topped with cheddar cheese and a carrot jalapeno slaw served on a bun and a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich served with Sriracha mayo, pickles and shredded iceberg lettuce on a toasted bun, among others.
The aforementioned dishes will be served with a choice of appetizers such as Green Goddess Wedge with grape tomatoes, garlic croutons and a creamy avocado dressing and the English Cucumber Salad with red wine vinegar, olive oil and shaved onion.
What's more, travelers who order an Airport Restaurant Month dish will also receive a dark chocolate sea salt bar to enjoy during their flight.
HMSHost isn't overlooking the beverage side of things though as travelers can order a special cocktail created exclusively for the month of May. The Getaway Gimlet is a refreshing spring take on the traditional gin gimlet cocktail, the global restauranteur said.
"This unique dining event takes travelers on a culinary trip of flavors before they even begin their travels," said HMSHost Vice President of Culinary Jeff Steelman in a statement.
"This Airport Restaurant Month, our chefs came together in the kitchen and were inspired by the abundance of spring produce, some of the latest food trends and unique takes on travelers' favorite meals to craft creative menus for an elevated airport dining experience."
