The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) is considered one of the best airport restaurants in the country by USA Today readers.

The restaurant finished second place in two contests that were part of USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards for 2019. It finished second in the “Best Airport Sitdown Dining” and “Best Airport Grab-And-Go” categories.

“This recognition is exciting because customers took time to vote and obviously see GSP’s The Kitchen at Wolfgang Puck as providing a quality dining experience no matter if it’s at a table in the restaurant or grabbing a sandwich or salad while on the run,” said Scott Carr, GSP’s vice president of commercial business and communications.

The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck is located in GSP’s Grand Hall immediately after the security checkpoint. Diners can view the airport’s airside garden, which has fountains, statues, trees, flowers and breathtaking views of the airfield with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.

The restaurant’s menu has hand-cut steaks, red snapper, pizza cooked in a brick oven and specialty cocktails. Grab-and-go options include a variety of sandwiches, salads and parfaits.

GSP’s The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck opened in 2017. Other airports around the world with the concept include Calgary, Cancun, Dubai, Singapore and Washington, D.C. (Dulles International Airport). One will open in Hong Kong later this year.

“First, having partners such as the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport District and OHM, who have been great stewards of our brand, made it possible to be nominated for this special award,” said Vince Modica, executive vice president of license business for Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc.

Developing The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck at GSP was a special project and we’re pleased to know that it’s a customer favorite that’s earned a spot on such a distinguished list.”

OHM Concession Group manages the concessions program at GSP. “A lot of people, including many who are behind the scenes, contribute to the experience that diners enjoy in any restaurant,” said Milan Patel, OHM’s president and CEO. “Every employee at GSP’s The Kitchen at Wolfgang Puck should be proud of their contributions and the role they’ve played in making the restaurant highly regarded.”
