The Food Network Takes TV to the Airport with Its First Restaurant

November 13, 2012 at 10:02 AM | by | ()

It might not be your favorite television channel, but we all have a special place in our hearts for the Food Networkhy. Turn it on, tune in, and just like that you’ve wasted at least an hour of your life. Well officials with the channel’s marketing team must be hoping that the same thing will happen at that airport—at least more deliciously—as their expanding the network’s reach right into the airport.

The very first Food Network Kitchen is now doing its thing at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for all your pre-flight dining needs. The place calls Concourse F within Terminal 3 home, and Delaware North Companies Travel Hospitality Services hopes that their partnership with the Food Network brings instant brand recognition to their latest restaurant.

We’re trying our best to spice up the details offered up in the press release, but until we can check it out in person we’ll just have to trust all the adjectives. It sounds like they’ve got fresh and delicious food—let’s hope so—and that organic produce is an option. Some breakfast menu items include a Cuban Breakfast Burrito and Steel-Cut Oatmeal with dried tropical fruit, but if you’re looking for something a little later in the day try out the Florida Shrimp Po' Boy, Tropical Turkey Sandwich, or the Black Beans and Rice Burger. Of course there will be booze to wash it all down, and there will be a grab-and-go outlet to pick something up on the way to the gate.

Television screens will stream Food Network programming, so this probably isn’t the place to catch the game between flights. We’re thinking this place could be quick to expand if things work out well down at FLL, so stay tuned for more locations at an airport near you.
