Airport Grille Brings New Ownership and a Tasty Destination Menu
It's been a long week of delicious foods from all types of "food genres", but the Airport Grille hit a home-run in my book.
Newly owned and managed by the owners of the legendary End Zone restaurant in New Bedford, Troy and Ryan Demelo, alongside with partners David Slutz and Steve Furtado, within weeks time, they were able to take an existing restaurant and make it something of their own in a big (and delicious) way.
The Rock & Fox Show was greeted early in the morning by local chef extraordinaire Courtney Robichaud who cooked up a cornucopia of dishes that were nothing more than exceptional.
Here's what was on the menu:
New England Clam Chowder
This classic favorite is given a little twist with added chourico.
Honey Buffalo Chicken Tenders
A pound of chicken tenderloin tossed in your choice of buffalo honey, sweet chili, or BBQ sauce, served with freshly made pineapple and mango salsa. Pictured are the buffalo honey chicken tenders.
Marinated Steak Tips
Tender marinated steak tips served with your choice of two sides.
Lobster Roll with Hand Cut Fries
8 ounces of lobster served warm with drawn butter or chilled with lemon herb aioli. Also pictured are the side of hand cut fries.
Cajun Chicken and Shrimp Alfredo
