First Flight Wine Bar
Whether you travel here from far away or just around the corner, come join us at Tampa International Airport for a food and wine adventure at First Flight. We’ve planned your itinerary by selecting a progressive list – concise but quintessential – and stocked up with Chef’s creations that make wine more essential and enjoyable. Located in the main terminal before passing through security, please join us before boarding, after arrival or for a perfect spot to people watch.
We created First Flight out of a passion for wine, food, hospitality and to answer the quest to enjoy wine in a simple, rather European, fashion. We want to share our daily desire to explore flavor and places, travel the world through winemakers and cheesemakers, and bring that world to you.
Something for the novice and the experienced, the list follows the path of a tasting, going from light to heavy, soft to adamant, sweet to dry, petite to immense. We offer terms and tasting notes that you can use to assist in making a selection.
The menu is, simply, food to go with wine. Charcuterie, the ancient culinary art which brings us pates, sausages, salamis and hams, cured and smoked fish, is a mainstay. Artisanal cheeses and hand-crafted snacks round out our selections. As with the Mise en Place menu, Chef Blitz has taken culinary classics and created an elevated taste sensation that you will fall in love with as you sip.
Flights have been arranged to get the most out of your exploration so buy the ticket and take the ride. We have wine to go with your food and food to go with your wine, and both to go with your mood, your day and your appetite. Come explore the world of wine and food with us. We can’t wait to serve you.
