Latest news from London City Airport

New menu unveiled at City Bar, London City Airport

22/05/2013
Passengers flying from London City Airport will now have a new menu from which to choose. As part of a drive to deliver a standard of quality unrivalled at any other UK airport, the new menu has been designed to be current, and of strong appeal to the unique passenger profile at London City.
 
Passengers can choose from a range of small plates, including confit of heritage tomatoes with shaved Manchego cheese, balsamic baby onions and chilled tomato consommé, or house-cured Barbary duck breast served with carrot and cardamom puree, soy jelly and dandelion leaf. Those looking for something more substantial can opt for a choice of classic dishes such as char-grilled rump of Welsh lamb served with aubergine parmigiana, balsamic poached salsify, baby fennel, black olive, blush tomato and brioche crumb, or Côte de Boeuf of 28-day aged rib eye of Scottish beef on the bone served with truffle creamed potatoes, caramelised baby onions, fine green beans and port jus.
 
An extensive selection of wines is available by the glass as well as the bottle. These include the sumptuous Burgundy Meursault Villages Domaine Michelot 2008, or from Italy an equally impressive Barolo Castiglione Voetti 2006.
 
Commenting on the new menu, Neil McLeod, Non-Aviation Revenue Director at London City Airport said; “LCY is the first choice London airport for business travellers, with many being frequent users.  It is important that we strive to exceed their expectations and offer the kind of quality and choice in our restaurants that they could find in the City of London - and in other world cities.  The new menu certainly delivers that; it is already proving popular and maintaining the business-class standards that we pride ourselves on across all areas of the airport.”
 
Executive chef Robbie Lorraine said; “Combining modern techniques with traditional ingredients has resulted in a sophisticated menu of dishes that our customers would expect to see at the best fine dining restaurants across the world.”
