Paradies Lagardère and Kent Rathbun Concepts open Abacus, their 2nd restaurant together at DFW

Eclectic and enticing lunch and dinner menu options include signature small plates like the famous Lobster Scallion “Shooters,” pictured here, and the much talked about Hudson Valley Foie Gras

Early in 2016 Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) awarded contracts for a number of new food and beverage operations. Paradies Lagardère and Kent Rathbun Concepts were together awarded three restaurant/bar locations in Terminal D. They have just opened Abacus, the second of the three. Whitetail Bistro opened in September 2016.

As with DFW itself, Paradies Lagardère’s Food and Beverage concepts include high-end restaurants, quick-serve restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

Abacus offers contemporary global cuisine in an upscale dining atmosphere, offering an eclectic lunch and dinner menu containing the best seasonal ingredients.  The restaurant will also serve breakfast, offering such options as yogurt, granola, fruit and omelets.

“We’re excited to bring Abacus to DFW, providing travelers variety and a taste of the local cuisine,” said Bill Casey, senior vice president, Food and Beverage, Paradies Lagardère. “Paradies Lagardère’s offerings through Kent Rathbun Concepts, Abacus and Whitetail Bistro, offer sophisticated dining environments and delicious, high-quality menu offerings that provide the first-class, internationally-renowned experience travelers expect at DFW.”

“Bringing the Abacus concept to DFW Airport is something I believe sophisticated travelers are seeking in terms of airport fine dining,” said William Hyde, owner of Kent Rathbun Concepts.  “It is an honor to work with Paradies Lagardère and we look forward to bringing such an internationally-renowned restaurant to travelers from around the world.”
