Calling all fine diners and foodies—we’ve compiled a list of some of the top culinary destinations for private jet travelers. More often than not, food is the highlight of a travel experience for seasoned globetrotters, but so can a private flying experience with JetLevel. With highly experienced agents available to accommodate every traveler’s need, flying with JetLevel means tasting luxury both in the air and off when you get to your culinary destination.
Many of us might already know that big cities like New York City or Paris have some amazing restaurants, but it’s also true that a fine culinary experience doesn’t have to be localized to those two metropolitan landscapes. If you’re ready to taste the finer things in life and make some unique memories in the process, we’ve got you covered. It starts with booking a private jet charter.

Internationally acclaimed for its Michelin-star restaurants, Girona is a scrumptious gem in the romantic Spanish countryside. Spain is known for more than its laid-back tapas appetizers. Girona cultivates wine in the hills to accompany the high-quality Catalan fish stew of the region. Interesting spices and unique flavors truly set Catalan food apart from the rest of the country, allowing travelers to taste the richness of the mountains and the sea.
Private jet travelers can experience not just the typical tourist destinations like Barcelona or Madrid, but also the local flavors of the rich Girona region. In preparation for new cultural experiences, passengers could enjoy their JetLevel private flight even more by requesting some Spanish in-flight entertainment to brush up on their language skills through music or cinema of each traveler’s choice.
Sheltered between France and Italy, Menton is what some call France’s best-kept secret. Not too far from popular destinations like Nice or Cannes, Menton offers the coastal charm and fine dining that encapsulates recipes of both Italian and French origin. Some favorite culinary delicacies travelers have enjoyed in the pleasant climate include wood-burning oven pizza, handmade pasta, and seafood options including oysters or fritto misto.
One of the restaurants, Mirazur, has even been mentioned as one of the best restaurants in the South of France. If you need an appetizer before your French dining experience, you can even pre-order personalized French catering during your flight to Menton with JetLevel.
Mexico City, Mexico
Mexican food may not be the first cuisine that comes to mind when thinking of high-end dining. However, Mexico City’s growing culinary scene is changing the minds and taste buds of travelers from all over the world. Mexican culture is centered around food and celebration, and what better way to celebrate life than eating elevated Latin cuisine surrounded by the lush mountains and the beating heart of the desert?
Grilled fish, seasonal fruits, and the modernized mole are something to savor. Before diving into the hustle and bustle of the big city, a flight with JetLevel will leave you well-rested with comfortable reclining seats so you can relax and enjoy the ride.
San Francisco, California
The depth of San Francisco bay is covered in layers of fog and mist from the Pacific Ocean. Inside these rolling hills and between the Victorian architecture, however, is a foodie travelers paradise. Fly by private jet with JetLevel to the California coast and experience the diverse range of food options, suitable to anyone’s taste. Experience flavors from regions including Asia, South America, and beyond.
While also known for its global cuisine, San Francisco also prides itself on its farm-to-table dining experiences made only from produce that is grown in the Northern California region. Your flight with JetLevel could be made even sweeter by requesting local California wines or a farm-fresh charcuterie board to satisfy your inflight cravings.
Why Is Traveling for Food Worth it?
When we ask people about what they remember from their travels, many will attest to the great meals they had. So why do private jet travelers with JetLevel fly from across the world travel to try new food?
Food is a gateway into other cultures. Each meal contains a story. The cooking styles and flavors could reveal the political history, agricultural knowledge, or familial traditions of the locals. By immersing yourself in culinary travel, you will gain a deeper understanding of what truly makes the people of the city or country tick.
Many of us frequently cook the same meals time and time again, only later to complain that we are bored with those meals. Eating in new places can often inspire us to try using new spices or cooking methods the next time we prepare a meal. This culinary inspiration can enlighten our creativity for days (and meals) ahead.
It’s no secret that food brings people together. Flying private to top culinary destinations can connect you with other travelers who also love trying new cuisine. A fine-dining experience for two can turn into a celebration or communal enjoyment over delicious food and local wines. Culinary travel can create memories that last a lifetime.
Flying private with JetLevel doesn’t mean just experiencing the top wonders of the world, it also means you can experience the top flavors of the world. With offerings of personalized inflight catering and a full-service concierge, JetLevel can provide you with a safe and enjoyable journey before stepping off to the next restaurant.
A private jet charter is the first step to dining in luxury, wherever and whenever you see fit.
Culinary dining can be found on the coast, in the mountains, or even in the quiet countryside, if only we are open to engaging in a foodie’s adventure.
