Chef Allen to Add Location in Fort Lauderdale Airport

If you're not a subscriber to our weekly Café Bites dining newsletter for Broward and Palm Beach counties, here's a taste of what you missed this week. Click here to subscribe.

Expected to debut just in time for anyone flying out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport for the holidays is Chef Allen 2 Go, a line of Latin and Caribbean-influenced sandwiches, salads, platters, and desserts from one of SoFla's best-known and most esteemed chefs.

The new 2 Go line is guided by the same principles as Susser's highly regarded Aventura restaurant, Chef Allen's.

That means local ingredients and flavors -- "organic and sustainable

when possible, very healthful and eco-friendly." It also means sammies

like grilled jerk chicken with mango ketchup and curried slaw and

chimichurri roast beef with piquillo peppers.

Prices haven't

been set yet, but Susser says they'll be "very reasonable," likely

coming in well under $10. At first, Chef Allen 2 Go products will

be available only in kiosks in terminal number three, but later they'll be sold in

all four airport terminals.

Can Miami and Palm Beach airports be far behind?

"We'll see how it goes," Susser says.
