Way to go, Lynn! Canadian chef’s airport restaurant wins top honours

TORONTO — Who says you can’t enjoy fine dining at an airport? Certainly not Food Network Canada celebrity chef Lynn Crawford, whose restaurant at Toronto Pearson International Airport just won ‘Airport Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year’.

The Hearth by Lynn Crawford, brought by HMSHost, won top spot on The Moodie Davitt Report’s prestigious 2018 Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Awards, which recognize and reward best practices in airport food & beverage around the world.

Located in Terminal 1, The Hearth by Lynn Crawford features a market-inspired and chef-driven menu that includes small plates and appetizers, hearth-fired flatbreads, elegant mains and side and decadent desserts. The food is matched with craft ales, classic cocktails and first-rate wines.

The Hearth by @Chef_Lynn | Flatbread with mushrooms, onion petals, goat cheese, and pesto and the Butcher’s Board (soppressata, salami, prosciutto, country pate, housemade pickles, triple crunch mustard). ???????????? We continued our @HMSHost restaurant tour at @TorontoPearson at The Hearth. Here you’ll find comfort food for every palate made with local and seasonal ingredients. This is definitely a great joint to unwind in with satisfying bites and warm hospitality before your flight (located in Terminal 1, Level 2, near Gate F60)! ????????✈️ — #HMSHostTasteYYZ #TheHearth #tastebytes #tastebytestravels #torontopearson #cheflynn #blogto #yelpgta #noleftovers #onthetable #nowtoronto #narcitytoronto #tofoodfeed #the6ix #yyz #yyzeats #notableca #zagat #petitejoys #flashesofdelight #dailyfoodfeed #beautifulcuisines
