Airport Lounge Development is partnering with global restaurant developer HMSHost to serve cuisine from Ecco at The Club at ATL inside Hartsfield-Jackson International. The lounge is now serving in Concourse F, according to a press release.
Continuing the airport trend of limiting human interaction, menus at The Club can be accessed by tablet. Among the Ecco dishes available are charcuterie boards, stuffed piquillo peppers, pappardelle pasta, and roasted poulet rouge, along with desserts such as chocolate cherry tremezzino and cookies and milk. Ralph Kinder, director of operations for The Club parent company ALD, says the goal is to "create a true alternative to other airport lounges by leading the way with this value-added benefit."
The Club also operates outposts at airports in Cincinnati, Dallas, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Seattle, and San Jose. Like the Atlanta location, the Phoenix location is planning to offer a menu from a local restaurant. The Club at ATL is open daily from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Patrons who don't qualify for access can get in by purchasing a $35 day pass.
