The Fort Lauderdale International Airport is the new home to the nation’s first Food Network Kitchen. Located in the Jet Blue Terminal, the Food Network Kitchen is the only eatery serving hot food in the concourse, and GOOD hot food at that. The general manager of the the Food Network’s business enterprise division, Sergei Kuharsky released this statement, “The dynamic of food and travel has changed, You use to never go in and think about eating in an airport. We are responding to that need.” Hopping on a flight simply for the airport dining, is not something that anyone historically would consider, however with the all star chef created menu, travelers may think twice. Since its’ soft opening on November 8, it has already served 1,500 customers.
The menu is take out and promises organic and sustainable ingredients and the dishes are all inspired by local Florida ingredients and draw on the rich South Florida culture. Items include Cuban Breakfast Burrito, fried pickles with key lime mayo, black beans and rice burger, Florida Shrimp Po’Boy, Salmon Burger with key lime mayo, sweet potato fries with key lime tartar sauce, and of course, the Cuban sandwich. Beverages include café con leche, entwine wine, and locally inspired cocktails made by Lansky’s Run. Not only is the food delicious, but the food network’s commitment to local ingredients is good for local farmers and fisherman as well. Food Network Fans will certainly appreciate the to a tee homage in design to the Food Network test kitchen on television and the design features butcher block bar counter, subway tiling, stainless steel surfaces, and hanging pots and pans. The Food Network could not have chosen a better location for a “test” restaurant as Fort Lauderdale is one of the most hastle free and beautiful airports in South Florida. Next time you are taking flight, be sure to stop in!
