Lagardère Travel Retail has partnered Chef Wolfang Puck to open the chef’s first Wolfgang Puck Kitchen in the arrivals hall of Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

In a press release, the restaurant said it will “deliver a Californian-inspired interpretation of global comfort fare using high-quality seasonal ingredients” for the discerning traveler on-the-go.

The restaurant is now open for business from 630am – 0030am daily so travelers can enjoy their meals there or choose to have a beer or cocktail at the bar. The restaurant’s breakfast menu provides a selection of hearty American-style breakfast essentials, while the à la carte menu presents a contemporary twist on classic comfort dishes, using local and organic ingredients where possible.

Commenting on the new restaurant, Alby Tsang, General Manager, Retail Portfolio, Retail & Advertising, Airport Authority said: “We are thrilled to have the very first Wolfgang Puck Kitchen Restaurant landing in Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) as they reflect one of the best of restaurant hospitality. The trusting partnership with Lagardère Travel Retail is strong.”

Eudes Fabre, Chief Executive Officer (North Asia) of Lagardère Travel Retail said: “We are pleased to continue developing our Food & Beverage presence at Hong Kong International Airport with the opening of this flagship restaurant in partnership with acclaimed chef Wolfgang Puck.”

“The level of coordination and spirit of partnership leading up to this grand opening have been exemplary and we look forwards to extending this collaboration to other locations throughout Lagardère Travel Retail’s extensive global network. Opening the first Wolfgang Puck restaurant in Hong Kong here at HKIA is a reflection of our confidence in the future potential of this leading air hub and our support for Airport Authority Hong Kong’s ambitious improvement and expansion plans.”

“I have always been intrigued by the cultural and culinary diversity of Hong Kong. It is a very special city and I am excited about opening my restaurant here,” said Chef Wolfgang Puck.
