Shake Shack creator teams up with Delta for new menu
First Published Aug 13 2013 08:55 am • Last Updated Aug 13 2013 01:40 pm

Delta Air Lines has tapped the restaurateur behind cult burger brand Shake Shack and New York dining destination Union Square Cafe to create a special "express" in-flight menu for business class passengers.

The U.S. carrier has teamed up with Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group to develop a new menu that will deliver an abbreviated version of its business class service for flyers who prefer relaxing and sleeping on flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport and London.

The new Express Meals menu will be developed by chefs at the USHG’s Blue Smoke restaurant, who will also create a signature cocktail for the in-flight dining program. The program debuts next February.

Delta has worked with popular U.S. chefs like Michael Chiarello and Michelle Bernstein to develop previous menus.

This past spring, Meyer also opened his first airport outposts of Shake Shack and Blue Smoke on the Road at Delta’s new JFK Terminal 4.

Other restaurant options at the new terminal include Uptown Brasserie and Street Food by Marcus Samuelsson and The Palm Bar & Grill, a New York steakhouse institution.

Meanwhile, other airline-chef collaborations include Michel Roth for Air France, Neil Perry for Qantas and Heston Blumenthal for British Airways.
