The highly prized Hamburg Food Service Award was bestowed upon casualfood as the best national winner last Friday. The annual award presented by the dfv media group recognises especially successful concepts. The second award, in the international category, went to Time Out Market in Portugal. The award ceremony held at Hamburg’s Grand Elysée Hotel was attended by close to 500 people.
The successful GOODMAN & FILIPPO concept continues to go from strength to strength. The company casualfood has just opened its fourth Italo-American deli at Frankfurt Airport, following on from the successful concepts already opened at the airports in Düsseldorf, Cologne Bonn and Ljubljana, Slovenia, since September 2016. In Frankfurt, the approximately 80-square-metre airside eatery offers passengers who have passed through security a direct view of the runway, allowing them to watch planes as they take off and land. The GOODMAN & FILIPPO outlet has space for 31 seated guests and uses the sous-vide method of cooking.
