Ready to ‘avo great meal? Well then, book your ticket and head to the airport to enjoy Airport Restaurant Month’s new menus full of bold and original flavors. This May, more than 80 restaurants across nearly 50 North American airports are participating in this spring’s foodie event by global restaurateur HMSHost.

Airport Restaurant Month is a unique take on the popular street-side restaurant week concept, but HMSHost has customized it for travelers, bringing an unmatched and uncommon culinary experience into the airport.

“With this May’s Airport Restaurant Month dishes, we are elevating the airport dining experience, bringing travelers some of the latest food trends, from avocados to plant-based options, right inside the airport,” said HMSHost Vice President of Marketing and Communications Atousa Ghoreichi. “Airport Restaurant Month is just one example of how HMSHost offers travelers unique culinary events, ultimately transforming the way travelers think about their airport meal.”

Airport Restaurant Month’s menus vary by restaurant, with select restaurants offering distinct customized menus that spotlight their own flavors and trends. The dishes showcase the versatility of avocados and will surely satisfy any avocado aficionado. While each menu may offer different options, the core of Airport Restaurant Month’s May 2018 menu items include:

  • Avocado Banh Mi with cucumber, carrot, cilantro, mint, and lime
  • Roasted Salmon with avocado, sautéed mushroom, arugula, and a Sriracha aioli
  • Pulled Pork Tacos with avocado, radish, and lime
  • Grilled Chicken Breast with smoky tomato sauce, caramelized onions, and avocado

Each of the above dishes is served with a Chopped Crunch Salad and a red pepper hummus with olives and grilled pita points. To help expedite the dining experience for busy travelers, HMSHost’s award-winning culinary team created the single-plated menus specifically with a traveler’s need for speed of service in mind.

A new twist this month that plays up a seasonal fruit favorite, at each location guests can enjoy a refreshing Patrón Watermelon Margarita. To further enhance the dining experience, HMSHost’s sommeliers have skillfully matched suggested wines for each Airport Restaurant Month dish.
