ACC enters high end restaurant biz

The Louisville International Airport needs one of these, an ACC restaurant, like the one being added to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport terminal:

From the RDIA web site:

ACC American Café.  This is the first time the Atlantic Coast Conference has partnered with a restaurant operator to venture into the dining world. Think upscale dining, not a traditional sports bar. Its menu features a range of farm-to-market dishes along withaccinteriorentrees inspired by the home cities of ACC teams. Tastes include steak, seafood, burgers, N.C. barbecue, wraps, salads, small plates and more. 

The restaurant includes a full bar, displays of ACC memorabilia, large windows overlooking the airfield and televisions. One thing we’re excited about is that the operator, HMS Host, is contributing some of the revenue from this restaurant to athletic scholarships and has committed to providing internship opportunities for students in the hospitality and culinary arts fields.

How about the Hot Brown as the Louisville entree?

  1. The Hot Brown would be the perfect dish for the Louisville entree.

    I would definitely stop in to one if there was one at the airport.

    And if they could keep it on the outside of the TSA checkpoints the non-flying public might patronize it, as well.
