Flights to open in Mountain View Oct. 27

Uploaded: Oct 24, 2018

Tapas-style restaurant Flights will open its doors at 800 California St. in downtown Mountain View this Saturday, Oct. 27.

Flights is the brainchild of Alex Hult, a former professional hockey and poker player from Sweden. He opened Hult's Restaurant in Campbell in 2013, but later closed it and turned it into a Flights. He went on to open additional locations in Los Gatos and Burlingame.

At Flights, all dishes and drinks are served in threes: order hot dogs and you’ll get one bratwurst, one polish and one Calabrese; order tacos and you'll get al pastor, chicken and beef salsa verde. The idea is to encourage sharing and interaction, Hult said.

As the name indicates, the concept also plays off the idea of airplane service. Each table has a call button to request wait service, dessert or the check.

Flights serves lunch, dinner and brunch.

The grand opening will start at noon on Saturday.
