Taqueria, Pizzeria Join Offerings at CLE

Fraport Cleveland has opened two new dining options for travelers at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE): Cantina taqueria and tequila bar and 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen.

Located in Concourse C, the 2,700 square-foot Cantina taqueria and tequila bar is reminiscent of a local street side Mexican taqueria, with a menu that includes delicacies such as spicy pork carnitas, al pastor grilled chicken and a one-of-a-kind gluten-free green chili. Cantina’s vast selection of tequila carries over to Latin-inspired cocktails such as the Mojito de Oaxaca cocktail – a tart and smoky twist on the classic mojito with cucumber and Mezcal to soften and deepen the flavor.

Recently opened in Concourse A, 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen offers not just its nationally-known craft pizzas, but also a variety of sandwiches, salads and appetizers, all enhanced with fire-kissed flavors.

“We’re excited to introduce two dining concepts that offer loads of appetizing dishes for diners at the airport,” says Tina LaForte, vice president for Fraport Cleveland, which develops and manages the retail concessions program at CLE. “From 800 Degrees’ wood-fired creations to Cantina’s Mexican specialties, they each bring new flavor profiles to the airport.”

CLE has introduced a host of new food options for passengers in the past 12 months, including Panini’s Bar & Grill, Embers Fire & Ice Bar, Shake Shack, and Wow Bao, making it a viable stop with more choices for hungry fliers.
