What Do Cat Cora and the Chicago Cubs Have in Common? New Airport Restaurants!
Thereís still a few months left in 2012, but we canít help start to look back and wonder if this has been the year of the airport restaurant. It seems like each and every week there are new announcements and grand openings, and of course many have celebrity chefs doing their thing in the back.
This week itís Cat Cora building upon her existing airport restaurant empire, as the Iron Chef takes her knives out to the airport in Salt Lake City. This is establishment number three for Cat Cora, and this one is located within Concourse B of the airport.
The menu at Cat Coraís Kitchen seems to be somewhat similar to the offerings that she serves up over in both Houston and San Francisco, but there does appear to be a few tweaks here and there. We definitely wouldnít complain about grilled New York strip steak with lobster mac and cheese prior to departure.
Thatís not the only new restaurant on the scene this week, as thereís a new establishment planned for the friendly confines of Chicago-OíHare. The ribbon cutting took place earlier in the week, and now it looks like itís all systems go for the arrival of a Chicago Cubs-themed restaurant at the cityís biggest airport.
Cubs Bar & Grill will serve up exactly what youíd expect in Terminal 3 at the airport, but your burger and fries will be surrounding by baseball memorabilia and even a replica of the Wrigley Field marquee. Vienna Beef Hot Dogs will of course be an option, and there will be several flavors of beer from which to choose. We think itís going to be a hit.
