Starting next month, Souvla will be served on Delta flights from SF to Boston and JFK.
San Francisco’s popular Greek restaurant chain Souvla has 4 successful locations all around the city, but they recently decided to take to the skies! Delta Airlines and Souvla announced their partnership on Wednesday, and plan to introduce the new menu starting in September. New York’s classic American restaurant Union Square Events will also add a new in-flight menu for passengers traveling in the opposite direction, and Seattle will start seeing some more fresh, local menu items later this fall.
Souvla’s menu draws customers from across the Bay Area and beyond, and for good reason. Their spit-roasted meat sandwiches are to die for, not to mention delicious fresh salads, Greek fries, and more. According to Souvla’s Instagram story and Delta’s press release, the in-flight menu will include their popular chicken salad, stuffed breakfast pita, baked feta pasta, meatballs with egg-lemon sauce, baked free-range eggs, and frozen Greek yogurt with vissino (Greek sour cherry syrup). This menu will be available for Delta One and first-class customers flying from San Francisco to Boston and New York-JFK.
“As a longtime Delta flyer and Diamond Medallion Member, seeing Souvla meals served onboard is truly a dream come true,” said Charles Bililies, Souvla’s founder & CEO. “We’re so honored to bring our creative take on Greek cuisine to the skies and to be working alongside such a visionary team at Delta. We are thrilled to share the unique Greek flavors Souvla is known for with Delta’s premium customers from our hometown of San Francisco.”
New York’s Union Square Events will provide meals for Delta One and first-class customers on flights from JFK to Seattle, LA, and SF. Their menu includes American classics such as braised short rib, spinach and goat cheese frittata, and cheesy twice-baked potato.
In addition to these new restaurant partners coming in September, Delta will begin introducing refreshed menu items to the current menu from Jon & Vinny’s, such as a hot pork shoulder sandwich. Later this fall, Seattle passengers will soon enjoy more locally-sourced ingredients in their meals such as porcini mushrooms and halibut.
“At Delta, we are focused on delivering moments of delight for our customers, and our restaurant partners will help us do just that,” said Kristen Manion Taylor, S.V.P. of In-Flight Service. “Our specially curated menus will wow customers as we continue to create a best-in-class onboard dining experience that builds on our premium service and culture of innovation.”
