* New casual dining precinct expected to be completed at the end of 2015
In an airport first, Sydney Airport has announced Chur Burger, the high-profile burger brand and brainchild of famed chef Warren Turnbull, will be one of the first casual dining offers to open as part of T2 Departures’ transformational refresh of its food and beverage offering.
Due to open at the end of 2015, Chur Burger will deliver its delicious signature burgers across a range of price points to passengers and visitors at Sydney Airport’s T2 casual dining precinct. The burger offering will be joined by an extensive selection of new food brands, including Mad Mex, SumoSalad Green Label, Roll’d, Hokka Hokka, Red Rooster and Sahara Grill.
The announcement of Chur Burger follows an extensive process undertaken by Sydney Airport to source the very best in on-trend food and beverage offerings for the revitalisation of T2. The staged rollout is designed to transform the passenger experience, offering travellers an extensive selection of different food choices across a range of categories, including fast and fresh, gourmet and street food.
Perhaps best known for his past gourmet ventures including award-winning restaurant Assiette and District Dining, chef Warren Turnbull created Chur Burger in 2012 after deciding to turn his hand to a more casual dining approach. What followed was almost overnight success with Chur Burger named ‘best burger’ in The Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food section in 2012.
Chur Burger is managed by SSP, the food travel experts delivering world-class food and beverage experiences in Sydney since 2008.
“We are delighted to partner with Sydney Airport and launch Chur Burger into the T2 terminal. We hope passengers travelling domestically are just as excited as we are about this new and unique offering in the new T2 casual dining precinct,” CEO SSP Asia Pacific Chris Rayner said.
Sydney Airport General Manager Retail Glyn Williams said the airport was focused on providing more choice and greater value to passengers at T2.
“We’ve completely overhauled the T2 casual dining space in line with our objective to transform the airport experience at Sydney Airport. The new space will accommodate a greater number of travellers through an expanded seating area and the exciting range of new food partners we’ve selected will complement our existing providers in T2 such as Brasserie Bread, MoVida and Toby’s Estate,” Mr Williams said.
“The new precinct follows a similar approach to our improvements in the T1 International terminal, providing on-trend, gourmet food selections such as Chur Burger across a range of cuisines that suit the needs of the busy domestic traveller.”
