This week, John Wayne Airport debuted three new dining options in Terminal A. Ruby’s Diner, Ruby’s To Go and Farmer’s Market by Laguna Culinary Institute opened between gates 8 and 9 just in time for Labor Day travelers.

The three new restaurants were selected and installed by concessions provider HMSHost, a global provider of dining and shopping locations in travel venues around the world, to provide travelers with a pleasant dining experience while they travel.

"We are pleased to join with HMSHost in announcing the opening of these highly regarded brands in Orange County," said Airport Director Alan L. Murphy. "We know our passengers will enjoy the first class food and terrific service they bring to John Wayne Airport."

The 1940s-styled Ruby’s features classic menu items such as burgers and milkshakes along with other diner favorites. The diner also offers breakfast items such as cinnamon rolls and breakfast burritos for early travelers. Located in Termincal C, Ruby’s Diner offers a full-service restaurant and bar for a laid back traveling experience and Ruby’s To Go provides quick services for those on the go.

In Terminal B the Farmers Market by Laguna Culinary Institute offers soup and salads from locally supplied ingredients along with a variety of cheeses, fresh fruit and roasted coffee.

The opening of the three new eateries marks the completion of the remodeling of JWA’s Riley Terminals A, B and C.

"We are very excited to be bringing these three local and iconic restaurant partners to John Wayne Airport," said Anthony Alessi, HMSHost’s vice president of Business Development. "We are confident that they will be well received by both local and visiting travelers alike.”
