During the lockdown, a restaurant was created at Munich Airport that aims to combine the fun of communication with modern culinary arts: Mountain Hub Social Dining.

The highlight of the restaurant, which was designed to be corona-compliant with plenty of space and air between the approximately 180 seats, is the open kitchen. "This creates a nice casual atmosphere," emphasizes chef Giovanni Russo, who previously worked at the Ritz Carlton Doha and The Charles Hotel Munich, among others.

At Mountain Hub Social Dining, the Italian-born chef from Tettnang in Swabia focuses not only on local products from Bavaria, but also on authentic specialties from the Alpine regions of Austria, Italy, France and Switzerland. Main courses range from New York steak, gnocchi with wild boar ragout and tagliarini with Bavarian Crusta Nova shrimp to selected classics such as veal cheeks and Wiener schnitzel.

One focus is food sharing: Russo wants to introduce his guests to the communicative togetherness of eating together. For example at the Sunday brunch. In addition, there is a large "community table" in the restaurant for meetings of families, friends or business partners. "The high table, at which you can sit or stand, is perfect for a stopover at the airport," explains host Paul Salinger, "you can work and snack on the side. In terms of the interior, the restaurant attracts with an alpine look, sophisticated lighting effects and details such as sockets and induction charging stations at the tables for smartphones and laptops.

The Mountain Hub Social Dining - as well as the adjacent Mountain Hub Gourmet - are located in the Hilton Munich Airport, which has been successively being given a modern alpine ambience for some time. "The new Mountain Hub Social Dining has been designed with great attention to detail," emphasize Hotel Director Markus Hussler and F&B Manager Martin Kleinfeld. "With its connection to nature and the mountain world, surrounded by the lively airport flair, the restaurant has become a beautiful relaxed place."
