A new healthy dining option opened yesterday (March 19) at Miami International Airport in Florida called Mediterranean Kitchen. The new outlet provides passengers with a wide range of quick and casual Mediterranean treats and is located in the airport’s North Terminal Marketplace near Gate D-26.
Emilio T González, aviation director for Miami Airport, said, “Our travelers have come to expect dining choices that reflect the variety of Miami’s culinary culture and status as a foodie destination. The Mediterranean Kitchen not only continues our efforts to bring the very best restaurant and food offerings to passengers at Miami Airport, but also demonstrates our ongoing support in the growth of local small businesses.”
Passengers can choose from a selection of gourmet wraps with extras such as hummus, babaganoush and Kalamata olives. Beverages include a selection of fresh fruit smoothies, teas or coffees. Portions are designed for ease of travel, whether it is eating inside the terminal or on board a flight. Mediterranean Kitchen is owned and operated by Ice Box Café, which opened in Concourse D in 2010 after building on the success of its renowned Miami Beach location.
The Mediterranean Kitchen is the latest local small business to open in Miami Airport’s multi-cultural, Miami-themed North Terminal Marketplace. Located between gates D-26 and D-29, the Marketplace showcases locally themed concepts that provide samplings from Miami’s diverse demographics. The Mediterranean Kitchen joins Cuban Crafters cigars and a Miami Marlins merchandise store, with locations offering empanadas, Caribbean cuisine and stone crabs all scheduled to open before the summer.
