The James Beard Foundation is one of the nation’s most prestigious recognition programs honoring professionals in the food and beverage industries.
One Flew South is the first airport restaurant to earn a place on the coveted list.
“At the world’s busiest passenger airport, customer service is one of our top priorities,” said Hartsfield-Jackson Interim General Manager Miguel Southwell. “Part of that commitment includes creating unique experiences for travelers, such as offering fine dining options with exceptional customer service.
One Flew South certainly excels in this endeavor.
I am proud of One Flew South and the terrific staff for their hard work, and wish them luck in this competition.”
One Flew South opened on Concourse E in 2008, and provides a fine dining experience featuring globally-inspired entrees and a robust sushi menu.
The design of the restaurant reflects the region through the use of indigenous ingredients to provide travelers a unique “Atlanta” experience.
One Flew South has consistently been recognized nationally and internationally for its “Southernational” cuisine from Chef Duane Nutter, and for its bar program led by Tiffanie Barriere.
“From initial design to the daily operation of One Flew South, our relationship with the Atlanta airport has been paramount to the restaurant’s success today,” says One Flew South principal Daniel Halpern.
“With the support of the Hartsfield-Jackson team and our own service leaders, we take great pride in offering travelers an exceptional dining experience in a welcoming and dynamic environment.”
Selected from a list of over 44,000 online entries, the prestigious group of semifinalists in 20 categories represents a wide variety of culinary talent, from exceptional chefs and dining destinations in 10 different regions across the U.S., to the nation’s top wine and spirits professionals, best new restaurants, and rising star chefs.
