Frequent traveller Andrew Rivkin is extremely excited with the announcement of an enhanced dining experience at Canada’s busiest airport. Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, which handles over 33 million passengers annually, recently announced the opening of several new restaurants in both Terminals one and three. The airport which already has some of the most luxurious shopping and dinning out of any major Canadian airport, is planning on opening four new restaurants at the end of this year and in early 2013. Andrew Rivkin travels through Pearson International regularly departing on both business and leisure trips and he says that the On-The-Go (OTG) initiative will only enhance the airports already superb dining offerings.
Some of the first openings later this year and early next year include:
Trillium: Serving Terminal 3, Trillium will be a global tapas restaurant and bar. Chef Claudio Aprile, known for his inventive cuisine at Toronto’s Origin restaurant, developed the menu for Trillium and has incorporated flavours from the worlds best cuisines. The offerings include snacks and small plates as well as raw bar selections, salads and open-faced sandwiches.
Heirloom: Coming to Terminal 1, which is home to the country’s national carrier Air Canada, is Heirloom. Baker and entrepreneur Devin Connell, who is the owner of Toronto’s Delica Kitchen at Yonge and St. Clair, composed the menu of light entrees including soups, salads, sandwiches and delicious baked goods. All Heirloom menu items are made fresh using the the finest local ingredients. Keeping it local is something that Andrew Rivkin appreciates in a good restaurant.
Fetta Panini Bar: Also serving Terminal 1, Fetta Panini Bar is a lively spot that will offer guests a delicious selection of panini’s, salads, and small plates. The menu was developed by well known Canadian celebrity chef Mark McEwan. Fetta’s design evokes a strong sense of spring, anchored by a maple wood structure to add a traditional Canadian texture.
Nobel Burger Bar: Serving Terminal 3, Nobel Burger Bar features gourmet burgers, from the classics to the inventive. Also created by famed celebrity chef Mark McEwan, this dining option allows guests to build their own burger or chose from a variety of chef inspired burgers.
With all of these exciting new restaurants coming to Pearson International, Andrew Rivkin is more eager to travel then ever!
