Along with the 64-foot mosaic mural and the simplified security entrance, Love Field's magnificent renovation boasts an expanded roster of concessions, including Dunkin Donuts and Cru Wine Bar. But the jewel on the airport's dining crown is Sky Canyon by Stephan Pyles, the first concept at Love Field to feature a celebrity chef.
The restaurant is a partnership between Pyles and Gina Puente, an airport concession veteran who runs some of the most innovative concepts at DFW Airport, including Cereality, UFood Grill and La Bodega Winery, which she opened in 1995.
Sky Canyon by Stephan Pyles offers contemporary Texas cuisine served in ranch-style setting with wood, stone and a decorative row of cowboy hats under glass along the front. Patrons of Pyles' other restaurants, including Stampede 66 and his eponymous restaurant on Ross Avenue, will recognize familiar motifs, such as a painted Western-themed mural — this one of horses on the move — and a TV airing old Westerns.
The menu, featuring entrees as well as small plates, culls some of Pyles' favorite dishes too, including tacos, ceviches and the signature honey fried chicken from Stampede 66. Other dishes include a rendition of shrimp and grits. Desserts range from .
The restaurant has a margarita and martini bar with specialty cocktails, wine and beer. For those who desire to dine-in, Sky Canyon seats 60. Located on the second level of the main concourse, the restaurant is open from 6 am to 10 pm, 365 days a year.
