Celebrity Chef Inspired Airport Restaurants

Whether you are a food enthusiast or just looking for a savory meal, make sure to check out these celebrity chef inspired airport restaurants. Their vast menu coupled with their rich flavors will make these places a must visit for any passenger.

 

Rick Bayless- Chicago, Illinois (ORD)

Consistently regarded as one of the best Mexican airport restaurants in the country, Tortas Frontera by Celebrity chef Rick Bayless never fails to disappoint. From the warm flavor of authentic chicken tortilla soup, to the savory freshness of the chipotle chicken, roasted mushroom, and pepito tortas, this is a spot you should not miss. Nobody likes that guy on the airplane with a sloppy bag of food; this Mexican meal is packed into a savory sandwich so it won’t mess up your hands or relationship with your seat mates.

 

Insider Tip: For a longer layover, enjoy the full Mexican experience by pairing the Pepito torta and the poblano corn chowder. Dip the torta in the chowder and let your taste buds take off.

 

Jamie Oliver- New York, New York (LGA)

If you’re a fan of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, you’re in luck. He has four separate food venues in the airport, so there are ample opportunities to chow down Jamie-style. There’s a coffee truck right at check in to start your journey off on a caffenieted track, or a bakery with gourmet cakes and freshly baked pizza all packed and ready to travel with you. If you have a bit more time, sit down at Jamie’s Italian, where antipasti like cured meat plates and seasonal vegetables precedeclassic dishes a la Osso Buco, Lamb Chops Scottaditto, and Crab Spaghettini.

Insider Tip: Grab a British-style handmade hot dog inside Jamie’s Union Jacks. Try the Dirty Dog with pulled pork, barbeque sauce and crackling!

Roger Mooking- Toronto, Ontario (YYZ)

Brand spanking new restaurant Twist brings healthy flavors from celebrity chef, tv host, and cookbook author Roger Mooking. The restaurant will focus on gluten free, vegetarian, and sustainable options, and will source many ingredients from local Canandian suppliers. While the ingredients may be local, the flavors are bold and exotic, as in the Fried Chicken made with Japanese spices and Thai-influences crispy herbs.

Insider Tip: Indulge in the Splat Scones, made with Devonshire cream, lavendar honey, and peameal bacon.

 

Mike Isabella- Washington D.C (DCA)

55ba26ac2b9294d3855be0ab4fd59d96

A sister restaurant to Mike Isabella’s Kapnos in Washington, D.C., Kapnos Taverna serves classic and coastal-inspired Greek dishes at Ronald Regan Washington National Airport (DCA).

Savor your taste buds on split roasted meats, Greek meze and seafood towers from the Greek Islands while you wait through your next layover.

 

Insider Tip: Enjoy classical liquid offerings that feature a Greek-heavy wine list and Mediterranean-inspired cocktails by Mike Isabella Concepts beverage director, Taha Ismail.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flying Fashionably 101: Layers, Layers, Layers!

airport

Ladies, this one’s for you. If you couldn’t already tell from the title, I firmly believe in the power of layers while traveling. Layers can transform any outfit from drab to fab, and magically make you look both carefree and put together! So when “comfort” and “fashion” seem like they are mutually exclusive concepts, just add “layers” to the equations and, viola!—you get a pinterest-worthy travel outfit. And now that fall is right around the corner, you have an even better excuse to layer-it-up! The items you’re about to combine can be found readily in your closet! Here are the basic, classic pieces:

  1. Cardigan: Outside the airport it might be hot. Inside the airport or on your flight it might be cool. Adjusting to the temperatures is easy with the versatile cardigan—definitely a fashionable alternative to a bulky sweater.
  2. Comfy Tee: Not only is a tee comfortable, it can be chic, too! Pair a solid colored V-neck underneath a cardigan for a sharp look.
  3. Form-fitting pants: Choose either a jean or a legging. Stay away from cargo pants (!!!) to avoid a potential pat-down fiasco.
  4. Flats: Or shoes that slip on and off easily. Avoid shoes with a lot of laces/buckles/zippers as these will just extend your time in the TSA line.
  5. Scarf: Not only an accessory, it can work as a replacement to the shady airline blanket.
  6. Large tote: Big bags can spruce up any outfit, even add a pop of color. Added bonus: Carry your books and magazines fashionably. Plus, if you get too warm, tuck away your cardigan and scarf in there!

Bonus Tip: Forgot some of the above items at home? Download our FlyInStyle App to find fashionable deals at the airport!

(Psssst, fellas, we haven’t forgotten about you…Stayed tuned for our flying-fashionable guide for men!)

Free Movies on Delta Flights?!

image

On certain aircrafts, that seems to be the case!

Delta Airlines is currently upgrading part of its fleet to have better in-flight entertainment systems. If you find yourself in an aircraft with the new touch screen in the back of the headrest you may be in for a treat. It seems that who ever installed the software missed the part where you have to pay for the premium items like movies on domestic flights! Chances are that this will be corrected as each aircraft is taken in for routine maintenance. So the next time you sit down in a newly renovated Delta plane take a moment and try and watch a movie or play a game. If it lets you, it’s free! (This has been observed on the Boeing 737 and 757 aircraft.)

Note: If you find yourself NOT on an aircraft that offers free movies, be sure to browse the FlyInStyle App. It’s always free and always fun.

World Cup Travel Tips

World Cup Travel Tips

As the FIFA World Cup kicks off this week, many of you will be traveling to Brazil to take in one of the world’s greatest sporting spectacles. Make the most of your fútbol adventure with these tips from FlyInStyle.

Attending Matches Arrive early! Take traffic and long lines into account. In South Africa, many fans missed the first halves of matches because of congestion at the stadium. Allow yourself an extra hour or two to meet fans from around the world, enjoy a drink and get excited for the match. Don’t forget that it is currently Brazil’s winter. Bring a light jacket and comfortable clothes to ensure an enjoyable match, especially if you’re in the South. Between Matches Come for the soccer, stay for the “festa.” Brazilian culture is all about fun and fan-fest parties are planned all over the country. Massive outdoor screens airing the matches, live music, dancing and drinks will flood the public squares in these locations:

Belo Horizonte: Praça da Estação

Brasília: Esplanada dos Ministérios

Cuiabá: Parque de Exposições Acrimat

Curitiba: Parque Barigui

Fortaleza: Praia de Iracema (Aterrão)

Manaus: Memorial Encontro das Águas

Natal: Praia do Forte

Porto Alegre: Largo Glênio Peres

Recife: Marco Zero

Rio de Janeiro: Praia de Copacabana

Salvador: Jardim de Alah

São Paulo: Vale do Anhangabaú

Dining Check out some of our favorite Brazilian restaurants: For a classic Brazilian steakhouse experience, Marius Degustare in Rio de Janeiro is must-see, or should we say, must-taste. If you like seafood, try Camarões Potiguar in Natal. A “homage to shrimp,” the restaurant offers creative and stylish meals centered all around shellfish. Try the South American take on sushi and cocktails in Manaus at the Soho Lounge. The Asian-Brazilian fusion restaurant is affordable, unique and delicious. A Porto Alegre staple, Bierstube has been serving family-style fare for over 25 years. Enjoy a delicious steak in a festive atmosphere. Satisfy your sweet tooth at Los Paleteros in Curitiba. The delicious ice cream shop boasts a vibrant family atmosphere.

Finally have a great time! And when you are heading back home, don’t forget to check the FlyInStyle App for more tips at the airport.

FlyInStyle opens a mobile communication platform for airport brands & retailers never before seen in the industry, allowing them to reach their consumer in innovative ways while increasing consumer understanding in the airport. It is the first airport app of its kind, specializing in improving the airport experience by showcasing offers & events in retail and restaurants. Eventually we will have a better understanding of how mobile can influence buying decisions. In the airport, as passenger traffic increases and people turn more and more to their mobile devices for entertainment, the opportunity to engage passengers will continue growing. FlyInStyle allows its beta merchant partners to publish content in any airport globally in minutes and determine the duration of each offer and event, so efforts can be highly targeted. The focus in the first half of 2014 is in the Americas as the company ramps up with exciting offers, deals and events while building its user base. They also have sights set on engaging high potential demographic targets like Brazilians and have accelerated expansion of multiple language support. The company is pushing merchants to publish global offers to give the passenger the best possible experience in the app for their entire trip. FlyInStyle is working alongside its brand and retail merchant partners on driving awareness, downloads, and usage during the trip through activities at the airport and online. FlyInStyle is in beta testing with select brand and retail partners but will gradually add more merchants throughout the beta period. Stay in touch at http://flyinstyleapp.com/!!
