Toronto Pearson has brought a flavour of the city to the airport with the opening of two new restaurants – Fetta Panini Bar and Heirloom Bakery Café in Terminal 1.
The new restaurants form part of the airport’s new partnership with F&B operator OTG to bring the best of Toronto’s culinary talent to the airport.
Customers at the new restaurants can order food from their seat using iPads.
The intuitive visual menu can be converted to one of 12 languages, including Chinese, Japanese, German, English, Hebrew, Greek, French, Hindi, Italian, Arabic, Korean and Spanish.
Nine chef-driven concepts were announced last year and these are the first two to open.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the incredible culinary talent of Mark McEwan and Devin Connell to Toronto Pearson,” said Pamela Griffith-Jones, chief marketing and commercial officer for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA).
“We continue to create experiences for our guests to enjoy and today’s openings are another step helping us deliver on that.”
Mark McEwan’s Fetta Panini Bar offers guests a selection of gourmet paninis, salads and small plates.
Heirloom Bakery Café serves up soups, salads, sandwiches and baked goods.
Devin Connell’s menu items are made fresh using local ingredients, and is the first of two Heirloom locations planned for the program.
“Dining at the airport continues its ascent,” said Rick Blatstein, OTG CEO. “Working closely with our partners at the GTAA, and talented chefs such as Mark and Devin, we’ve dedicated our focus on delivering a wonderful customer experience.
“From the quality of the menu to the inviting atmosphere, these openings mark an exciting debut of what’s to come for Toronto Pearson.”
