Bold bites coming to the sky this June
- 07 June 2017
As customers pack their bags for the perfect summer getaway, Delta will be dishing out seasonally inspired offerings on board to make their travel a little sweeter.
The new offerings, which launched June 1, are part of Delta’s industry-leading culinary strategy to offer constant refreshes for even the most seasoned travelers. The airline is committed to offering an ever-changing variety of fresh, local and seasonal food and beverage options to enhance the on-board customer experience.
Summer menus sizzle in Delta One
Customers traveling in Delta One, including transcontinental flights between JFK and LAX/SFO, DCA-LAX and BOS-SFO, will enjoy fresh, summer flavors woven into dishes onboard June through August.
Depending on the destination, menus will feature culinary creations by Delta’s in-house and partner chef Linton Hopkins as well as select chefs from Union Square Hospitality Group.
Whether customers are jet-setting across the globe for a little fun in the sun or heading back home, Hopkins’ summer menu pays tribute to his roots — the American south. Delta One customers who are flying on select routes to Europe outbound from Atlanta are able to enjoy his latest menu, which will be featured on board from June 1 to August 31. Highlights include Peppered Bistro Steak, Roasted Chicken Breast, Chesapeake Bay Crab Cakes and Storico Fresco Spring Smoked Eggplant Ravioli.
Began on June 1, customers flying in the Delta One cabin on select trans-Atlantic routes to Europe, and transcontinental flights between JFK and LAX/SFO, will enjoy meals created by chefs from some of Union Square Hospitality Group’s beloved restaurants in New York City.
Delta has partnered with Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group since December of 2015 to feature seasonally-rotating menus designed by its chefs. The “Best of Union Square Hospitality Group” menu will feature signature dishes from USHG favorites, including rustic Italian entrees from Maialino and Marta, and American classics from Union Square Cafe and Union Square Events.
Beginning this summer, Delta’s South American menu will also receive an upgrade from its current pan-regional offerings to a selection of delicious options created by South American chefs with seasonal and local ingredients.
