BETHESDA, MD — HMSHost’s wildly popular Airport Restaurant Month, the first of its kind, is back during the full month of May, to be featured in nearly 100 participating restaurants among more than 50 airports across North America. Airport Restaurant Month was first launched in October 2014, and due to its extreme success and traveler enthusiasm, the initiative has now quadrupled in number of participating locations. Popular street side restaurants are no longer the only dining venues that are able to show off their culinary skills during that special week known to the common foodie as Restaurant Week. Airport Restaurant Month was developed to celebrate this same phenomenon in a less traditional venue—in an airport, and for a full month.

“Award-winning chefs sharing culinary creations during restaurant week is always something diners look forward to,” said HMSHost Vice President of Marketing Atousa Ghoreichi. “HMSHost’s Airport Restaurant Month was created to drive that same excitement for guests dining in select airports—but for a whole month. We are so excited that its debut last October was such a success, and look forward to sharing this culinary experience with even more travelers in many more locations.”

HMSHost’s corporate executive chef and culinary team have created special menus for Airport Restaurant Month. Some of the dishes travelers will find include pan roasted Atlantic salmon in cool cucumber sauce; marinated grilled chicken breast with honey butter and whole grain mustard; and chimichurri skirt steak with mushroom glaze. Guests will receive a choice of entrée, accompanied by several side dishes.
