Ducks Restaurant At Airport (Breakaway Bar & Grill)
Anaheim Ducks Slapshot Bar & Grill: The hockey-themed bar is a collaboration with the Anaheim Ducks. The restaurant will offer an upscale bar and restaurant menu in a setting that pays homage to Orange County's local hockey team.
Bob Wagner, vice president of sales and marketing for the Anaheim Ducks and the Honda Center, said the airport is an opportunity to build on the team's strong "brand identity" in Orange County.
"I look at almost everyone who goes through the airport as our fans," Wagner said.
The bar will display Ducks memorabilia, and the menu likely will feature foods tied to certain Ducks players. The tabletops will display player jerseys, and the floor will be made of a white stone material that will make diners look as if they're walking on an ice rink, he said.
"It is very hockey driven," Wagner said.
The Slapshot grill is being proposed for the new terminal, and will face the tarmac.
