LONDON 2016-Mar-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — SSP America, a division of SSP Group, a leading operator of food and beverage brands in travel locations worldwide, announced today the opening of Chef Fabio Viviani’s Osteria at Los Angles International Airport’s Terminal 6.

Renowned across the United States for his “fan favorite” appearance on Bravo’s Top Chef and his increasing succession of award-winning, powerhouse modern Italian restaurants, Chef Viviani’s legendary food takes center stage. Passengers are promised a memorable meal rooted in Italy, but raised in LA with farm-to-table goodness. The restaurant’s menu and ambiance takes a modern spin on classic Italian but with a punch of LA swagger.

“I am so excited to be opening Osteria with SSP America at LAX,” enthused Chef Viviani.  “The menu I’ve created will appeal not only to Terminal 6’s diverse travelers, but also to California natives.  We feature Italian classics made with premium local ingredients.  I hope travelers find their meal here to be one of the most memorable parts of their journey.”

SSP America’s chief executive officer, Michael Svagdis, commented, “SSP America is enormously proud to be working with Chef Viviani in opening Osteria at Los Angeles International Airport.  With his culinary talent and inspiring passion for Italian cuisine Chef Viviani has created a true SSP America culinary destination that will be remembered long after departure.  We look forward to showcasing additional Chef Viviani concepts as we continue our developments across the region.”

Osteria welcomes passengers to a beautiful, cinematic space—modern and elegant, with a pinch of Italian charm.  Focus is on the large, exhibition kitchen where the magic of Chef Viviani’s menu is plated and served with entertainment for all.  A convenient To Go counter at the front of the space allows passengers to quickly grab freshly made entrées to take on their travels.  Gorgeous, contemporary pendant lights twinkle over spacious, deeply tufted leather banquet seating.  Approachable and stylish, warm and alluring—the scene at Osteria delights and attracts and is welcoming to all.

Chef Viviani’s Osteria will inspire travelers to come in and enjoy world-class food and drinks during any part of the day.  Menu items include oven fresh pizzas made with Chef Viviani’s own proprietary dough, scratch-made sauce and locally sourced toppings; crispy Panini sandwiches and burgers; small plates of antipasti; and a stellar range of soups, salads and pasta entrees featuring premium local ingredients.  Star quality food from a star quality chef.  For Terminal 6’s early fliers, breakfast will be served daily until 11am.
