HMSHost Corp. has brought 20 food and beverage locations to Phoenix Sky Harbor’s (PHX) Terminal 4, a mix of local flavor and national concepts.
“We are extremely proud of the outstanding range and quality of restaurants we have brought to entice the travelers at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport,” says Steve Johnson, executive vice president of business development at HMSHost. “The participation from local restaurateurs and chefs has really helped transform this terminal into one of the most diverse airport dining venues in the country.”
Restaurant partners include local restaurateurs Sam Fox of Fox Restaurant Group; Bob Lynn of LGO Hospitality; and Chef Silvana Salcido-Esparza.
Fox’s Sauce is in the Terminal 4 food court, offering pizza, salad and pasta. His other three restaurants include Blanco Tacos & Tequilla, serving Mexican fare; Modern Burger, featuring sliders; Olive & Ivy, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and marketplace; and Dilly’s Deli, a local brand serving sandwiches, wraps, soup and salad; all are on Concourse A.

In the B gate area, New York Pizza Department sells New York-style pizza; two local, family-owned restaurants are also in the mix: El Bravo, serving Mexican dishes, and Focaccia Fiorentina, serving traditional Italian pasta, pizza, sandwiches and salad, Press Coffee, in that same area, offers coffee, salad, soup and paninis.
Cowboy Ciao, a local restaurant that bills itself as Southwest meets Italian to become eclectic American, is in the high B gates. Also there are la Madeleine, with salad, vegetarian dishes and sweets, as well as McDonald’s and Starbucks.
