May is airport Restaurant Month, declared by global restaurateur HMSHost. It is now expanding the celebration overseas, to nearly 90 participating restaurants at more than 50 airports across North America and Europe.
The concept launched in North American airports in October 2014, Now it includes resturants operated by HMSHost’s parent company, Autogrill, at Brussels Airport, Zürich Airport, and Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport in Rome.
“HMSHost created the first of its kind monthly holiday because one week isn’t enough to celebrate our culinary creativity,” said HMSHost Vice President of Marketing Atousa Ghoreichi in today’s announcement.
Each restaurant location can customize its Airport Restaurant Month menu based on specially created dishes by HMSHost’s corporate executive chef and culinary team. Each dish is served with style that diners would find with streetside restaurants. Guests will receive a choice of entrée, accompanied by several side dishes. Some of the dishes travelers will find include rosemary grilled shrimp, flat iron steak, parmesan-crusted chicken; and a baked Portobello mushroom.
