Hugo’s Cocina and Landry’s Seafood are now open at George Bush Intercontinental (IAH), courtesy of HMSHost Corp.
“Hugo’s Cocina and Landry’s Seafood truly embody the Houston area and are both extremely dedicated to their respective cuisines,” says Anthony Alessi, vice president of business development at HMSHost.
Hugo’s Cocina, located in Terminal D, is based on Chef Hugo Ortega’s restaurant in Houston. It offers authentic Mexican cuisine. The menu includes Baja-style fish tacos, a Mexican sandwich with sautéed mushrooms and Oaxacan cheese, and bacon-wrapped shrimp with cheese and jalapeño. Tres leches and flan are available for dessert, and the restaurant has a long list of spirits that includes a selection of tequilas and mezcal.
Landry’s Seafood, located in Terminal C, is an iconic Texas restaurant that first opened in 1947. The airport location, opened through a partnership among HMSHost, OTG and United Airlines, will feature dishes such as Landry’s classic calamari with marinara red pepper remoulade sauce, oysters on the half shell, Landry’s gumbo and the catch of the day.
“The chance to welcome Hugo’s Cocina and Landry’s Seafood to Bush Airport is an exciting opportunity to bring a taste of both the diverse Houston culture and the overall standard to excellence our concessions and other airport amenities offer,” says Randy Goodman, director of concessions for the Houston Airport System. “They are a vital piece of our ongoing work underway to elevate our concession offerings across all the terminals in the airport.”
