New F&B concessions on the menu at Toronto Pearson

Toronto Pearson International Airport is set for an F&B concession renaissance over the next year with several new dining options scheduled to open by restaurateur HMSHost.

Local favourite Paramount Fine Foods has opened the first of two locations coming to Toronto Pearson, Canada’s busiest gateway.

The outlet serves fresh, healthy, high-quality and certified halal Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine, and the first is located pre-security in Terminal 1, with the second location to open post-security in Terminal 3 in Spring of 2015.

Paramount was founded on serving fresh and healthy Middle Eastern cuisine such as baked pita served straight from the oven, charcoal barbecued halal meats cooked to order, chicken and beef shawarma with exotic spices, and a variety of Manakeesh.

Howard Eng, GTAA president and CEO, explains: “Bringing an exciting range of dining options to our diverse guests is a top priority at Toronto Pearson. Our goal is to offer passengers a variety of restaurants, provide high quality options, and deliver local flavours and familiar brands.

“Paramount does just that with its authentic fresh and healthy Middle-Eastern cuisine priced to match its restaurants in the city.”


Paramount Fine Foods has proven popular in the Toronto area since its beginning, earning Best Middle Eastern Restaurant in Ontario in 2010, as well as Best Restaurant in Toronto in 2012.

It is one of several new restaurants that HMSHost is bringing to travellers at Toronto Pearson over the next year.

Other highlights include The Hearth by Lynn Crawford; LEE Kitchen by Susur Lee; Twist by Roger Mooking; and Caplansky’s Deli and Caplansky’s Snack Bar, in partnership with Zane Caplansky.

HMSHost will also open Bar 120 - cuisine transformed with a menu developed by Modern Culinary Academy chef John Placko.
