Food Network Kitchen Opens in Florida Airport

The culinary television station opens its first restaurant at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

Travelers can now dine at the first-ever Food Network Kitchen, a restaurant highlighting items crafted in Food Network’s New York City test kitchen, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., according to the New Times. The only catch? You have to be flying somewhere to dine at the restaurant, which is located post-security inside Terminal 3 of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The Food Network Kitchen is a casual, sit-down affair; but it also offers a fast-grab section where you can buy food and drinks to-go for your flight.

Both Susan Stockton, senior vice president of culinary production at Food Network, and Charlie Granquist, Food Network’s director of culinary development, have spent months perfecting the menu which uses as many local ingredients as possible.

The breads for sandwiches like Cuban breakfast sandwiches are supplied by Gran Forno, a bakery on Fort Lauderdale’s trendy Las Olas dining and shopping strip, and sweet treats are provided by We Take The Cake in Fort Lauderdale. The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner with sandwiches, salads, and desserts averaging at around $6 to $14.
