Local favorite to greet residents and visitors at the airport next year
ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the travel retail and restaurateur leader in North America, announced today its first restaurant at San Francisco International Airport (SFO). Limon Rotisserie is slated to open in Terminal 3 food court in the first quarter of 2018.
Since 2002, Limon Rotisserie has offered San Francisco locals and visitors delicious Peruvian cuisine and a modern approach to casual dining. Founded by the Castillo brothers, Antonio, Eduardo, and Martin, Limon Rotisserie is still a family-owned business to this day. Limon Rotisserie currently has two locations in San Francisco, one in Burlingame and one in Walnut Creek, with a future restaurant planned for Kapolei, Oahu, Hawaii.
The Castillo family will bring its fresh ingredients, original recipes, and unique dishes prepared with contemporary flair to passengers at SFO.
“Paradies Lagardère seeks out restaurateurs with successful brands to partner with to entice airports and travelers in a variety of ways, including bringing the familiar quality, taste and atmosphere of a favorite local restaurant into an airport,” said Bill Casey, senior vice president, Food and Beverage, Paradies Lagardère. “Limon Rotisserie is an exciting, vibrant restaurant that offers marinated free-range chicken that is slowly cooked oven over an open flame in a rotisserie oven that is displayed for the guests to see. The flavor is amazing! We’re happy to introduce such a great dining concept to SFO for passengers to enjoy, and thrilled to open our first restaurant at the airport.”
Limon Rotisserie will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to busy passengers at SFO. Breakfast offerings will include Empanada Tempreaneras with ham, egg and cheese. Limon’s famous rotisserie chicken will be available for lunch and dinner, along with Polli – Papas, crispy pieces of chicken, papas fritas topped with aji amarillo huacatay, mustard aioli, and parmesan cheese, and Chicharron de Pollo, chicken marinated in soy sauce, garlic, aji Amarillo, and salsa criolla.
High-end restaurants, quick-serve restaurants, bars and coffee shops are all a part of Paradies Lagardère’s Food and Beverage concepts. Brands have been tailored to entice travelers with the same familiar quality, variety, taste, and atmosphere as their favorite “at home” dining spots, while maintaining the highest levels of quality and service.
Paradies Lagardère was recently recognized for excellence in Food and Beverage. The USA Today 10Best Awards recognized Long Beach Airport, where Paradies Lagardère manages the full restaurant program, as its Best Airport for Dining two years in a row.
