Virgin America's New Summer Menu Includes Desserts From David Lebovitz

Virgin America Spruces Up Its Summer Menu

To entice consumers this travel season, Virgin America is coming out with a new Summer menu — and it's enlisted the help of none other than the famous pastry chef turned food blogger David Lebovitz.

The food overhaul, which starts today, includes options such as Andalusian gazpacho and eggplant moussaka for first-class diners — plus Lebovitz's butterscotch pudding with vanilla bourbon mascarpone for dessert.

For those who aren't lucky enough to sit in the first few rows, the main cabin is also offering up new bites along the lines of a grilled veggie goat cheese sandwich and pastrami with Swiss on Russian rye. And if the green fairy's not their poison of preference, flyers can indulge in illy cappuccino cocktails and reposado-spiked Honest Tea cocktails.

I'm curious about Virgin's newest noshes, but mostly intrigued by the fact that the airline carrier actually turned to the food blogosphere for some culinary advice. I can't help but wonder if we'll be seeing more of that in the future. It'd be a good thing! Do you agree? And if you're flying Virgin this Summer, will you check out the new food?
