Sustainable, hand-crafted, farm-to-table – these aren’t usually words used to describe airport food, but Seatac is hoping to change that.
The Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is rolling out a huge overhaul of its dining scene, scheduled to take place over the next year. A whopping 49 new restaurants and bars are in the works, adding to the 86 options currently available.
Local establishments serving regionally-sourced ingredients seem to be the trend. Salt & Straw, a beloved Portland ice cream shop, is on the way, along with Poppa Woody’s, a collaboration between Sub Pop Records and Li’l Woody’s burger restaurants from Seattle.
Other notable mentions include Ballard Beer Hall, Macrina Bakery (located in Seattle and Kent), and Good Bar (Pioneer Square). All in all, these new restaurants are sure to have something for everyone: burgers, sushi, noodles, baked goods, seafood, vegetarian, local beers, local wines, and of course, the ultimate Seattle specialty – coffee.
Hungry travelers should plan ahead to allow enough time before your flight at Seatac to enjoy a few gourmet delights.
