Whilst the South Terminal at Gatwick remains obstinately closed, and is likely to stay so until summer 2022, confidence is being shown by the airport with the opening of two new food outlets at Gatwick North.

Tortilla, the UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican restaurant brand, already has 51 outlets across the UK, but the latest offering at Gatwick will be its first venture into airports.  Passengers will be able to enjoy Tortilla’s fast-casual offerings, with dishes such as burritos, tacos, quesadillas and salads on the menu.

Meanwhile Juniper and Co, a premium bar and restaurant offering locally sourced produce, is a bespoke brand created by Tortilla for Gatwick.

The bar area is the focal point with its elegant marble finished bar and contemporary brass-finished central gantry.  The modern seated area offers passengers the opportunity to enjoy the broad range of drinks from the bar, whilst indulging in the locally inspired food menu.

Rachel Bulford, Director of Retail at Gatwick Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome both Tortilla and Juniper and Co to Gatwick. It’s exciting to not only have two new F&B offerings for our passengers to enjoy, but for them to be unique to Gatwick really demonstrates the pull of the airport.

Richard Lewis, CEO, SSP UK & Ireland, the brands’ owner, said: “With the steady return of passengers to Gatwick, we’re delighted to be opening our doors at Tortilla and Juniper. Whether you fancy a freshly made burrito to take onto the plane or would prefer to relax in beautiful surroundings with a delicious meal and cocktail, these two new brands will be a great addition to the dining scene at the airport.”
