According to a statement published on DublinAirport.com, The Mezz has been developed in partnership with SSP Group and features six food and drink offerings, which are Camile Thai, Handsome Burger, Badger & Dodo coffee, SSP-developed brand Erin's Kitchen, Ancho Hancho, and a bar that serves a range of locally brewed beers.
The Mezz is located upstairs in the airside departures area of Terminal 2.
Additionally, SSP has partnered with Cloud Picker Coffee, which will opens its first coffee shop in Dublin Airport on 27 July.
The statement published on DublinAirport.com quoted Dublin Airport general manager commercial Ronan Fitzsimons as saying, "Passengers travelling through Dublin Airport now have even more choice when it comes to grabbing a pre-flight meal or drink. The opening of these six new fantastic offerings comes at a good time as we enter second half of the peak summer period, with around two million passengers set to depart from Dublin Airport over the next weeks. From listening to customer feedback, we know passengers want variety at a range of price options and that's exactly what these new offerings in The Mezz provide. We're delighted to be working with SSP and many fantastic Irish brands in Camile Thai, Handsome Burger, Badger & Dodo and Cloud Picker Coffee. The even better news for passengers is that we're working hard to improve the food and beverage offering in both terminals at Dublin Airport even more, ensuring travellers have a fantastic experience when going through Dublin Airport. Passengers can look forward to more new outlets opening very soon."
The statement published on DublinAirport.com also quoted SSP UK & Ireland CEO Kari Daniels as saying, "At SSP, we take great pride in meeting and exceeding our customers’ needs. These new units represent the best of Dublin, from local flavours to innovative brand favourites, providing a truly authentic F&B experience for travellers coming through the international travel hub that is Dublin Airport. The digital solutions we've developed for The Mezz will allow guests to easily access items across a number of excellent F&B offerings in one place, which we think will be particularly well-received by families and groups travelling together, as we’ll offer something for everyone, no matter their preference."
