“The world in my kitchen …

and people from all over the world as guests at the Mountain Hub Social Dining Restaurant,” is the credo of Giovanni Russo, head chef at the Hilton Munich Airport, responsible for the casual-style restaurant, room service and catering for events and aviation service for private jets.

With a beaming face, empathically and with heart and soul, he represents his conviction of good food on the plates of his guests: “Putting the landscape on the plate” means for him honest upscale culinary art. To feel and taste the natural in the sophisticated.

The pantries are filled with the greatest ingredients. Freshly delivered by food producers who manage to prepare an impressive taste experience with conviction: The bread from a baker who lets the dough rest for 48 hours, the meat from the butcher who lets it mature with perseverance. Everything from the surrounding area and with a personal touch.

Drawing from the full: the menu of the social dining restaurant combines Munich, Vienna, Milan, Rome, New York – the whole world. Dishes that touch the heart, the classics of the region with a touch of the exotic and always absolute top. A real “mountain hub”. Regional, yet urban and international, fully committed to the name and quality of the Hilton Munich Airport.

Since Giovanni Russo left his Italian homeland and set out to learn how to cook, his career stations in the kitchens of Luxury 5 Stars Hotels have been strung together like exquisite pearls: for the British Royals as guests at the Dorchester London to the employees of the Google Campus in Munich. From Lady Di to Sundar Pichai, so to speak.

Now the Italian from Apulia has arrived in Freising and in the Erdinger Moos. This is his family centre. His guests from the surrounding area and from the airport business hub are dear to him.

The appreciation Giovanni Russo has for people – guests and staff alike – is also reflected in his way of managing the team and in his dealings with suppliers and his relationship with food. Those who lovingly let animals and vegetables grow and flourish or who bake bread with heart and soul make it into his list of suppliers. Credible, quality-conscious and responsible: the heart resonates in the kitchen of Mountain Hub Social Dining. With him and the entire team.

This is where everything comes together: 7 days a week, cooking for the casual dining restaurant, breakfast and room service, fine buffets and event catering at the Hilton Munich Airport. Even the delicacies of the aviation catering for private jets at Munich Airport come from Giovanni Russo’s kitchen.

Meeting place Mountain Hub Social Dining: The world is his guest and he brings the world to the plates of his guests from the surrounding area. Theme buffets, à la carte or individually on personal request. “Me and my kitchen team want people to feel at home here. “At home at the airport!” That is a high standard. You can only achieve that with top-quality dishes that make you feel at home and warm your heart.
