HMSHost Launches Airport Restaurant Month During October, With Special Menus at Airport Dining Locations Across North America

BETHESDA, MD — Popular street side restaurants are no longer the only dining venues that are able to show off their culinary skills during a special feature week, known to the common foodie as Restaurant Week. Travelers can now celebrate this phenomenon in a less traditional venue—in an airport, and for a full month. Global restaurateur HMSHost has launched the first Airport Restaurant Month, to be held during October. HMSHost’s corporate executive chef and culinary team have created special menus for the occasion at participating airport restaurants across North America.

“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 feature exceptional culinary delights beautifully presented just like you would find with street-side dining.”

Some of the dishes travelers will find during Airport Restaurant Month include bay shrimp bruschetta; pan-seared sockeye salmon with capers and remoulade sauce; rosemary grilled chicken breast with spiced apple cider glaze; and marinated skirt steak with balsamic onions and blue cheese crema. Menus include recommended wine pairings for travelers to complete a delicious meal before their flight.
