Custom crafted gourmet burgers are at the heart of a brand new concept that is now open at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport in Concourse A. Grounded In St. Louis was developed by HMSHost for Lambert to offer an upscale menu of burgers, sandwiches, salads- and even breakfast- with a counter service restaurant platform for quick and convenient take out.

“In the country’s heartland, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is the perfect location for us to roll out our latest restaurant concept, Grounded In, featuring an all-American favorite—the burger,” said Frank Sickelsmith, VP of Adult Beverage & Restaurant Development. 

“Grounded In is the perfect fit for Lambert because in today’s travel, many passengers don’t have the time for full sit-down service,” said Lambert Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge. “The counter concept here allows passengers to quickly order, then grab and go to eat at the gate or take on the plane.”

The menu is all made to order with custom grounded burgers in the spotlight with options like the CholulaTM  (1/3lb. with hot sauce, pepper jack cheese on brioche roll), the Cubano (1/3lb. with Cherrywood ham, Swiss cheese on a brioche roll), or the Sunrise (1/3lb. topped with cheddar, bacon and a sunny side up egg). Those custom burgers all feature great sides like French fries with sea salt, sweet potato fries or battered onion rings with assorted dips.

Breakfast options include egg sandwiches, the “Chix Deluxe” (grilled chicken breakfast sandwich) or yogurt, fruit and granola as a health-conscious option.  The menu also features premium ice cream milkshakes with a variety of toppings.
