A High Quality Taste of Place
When four restaurant entrepreneurs started Tastes on the Fly in 1999, they had a singular focus; bring travelers a high quality taste of place by executing with the same passion as the original restaurant locations from the community. Since its inaugural opening at San Francisco International Airport in 2000, Tastes on the Fly has grown into one of the largest boutique airport dining operators. The company prides itself on delivering on its promise to bring top tier food and beverage options to passengers in some of the busiest airports in North America.
We align with the community’s top chefs, beloved local food brands and restaurant teams committed to being part of something unique in order to bring a taste of the authentic local dining scene to an airport. Sometimes that mission is driven by a James Beard Award winner like Alex Seidel of Mercantile Dining & Provision, in Denver. Other times, it means collaborating with top chefs like the Food Network’s Tyler Florence and best-of-class local suppliers such as Model Bakery, Cowgirl Creamery and Acme Bread at Napa Farms Market to deliver the highest volume per square foot marketplace in an airport to date. Each of our locations embodies our core mission in it’s own way, but each of them leave the traveler with an unparalleled experience and authentic taste of each city.
