The Port of Seattle has unveiled a series of updates for the Central Terminal renovation project currently underway at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac), Washington.
The US$17m renovation will add 10,000ft² of dining and seating space along with improved accessibility. The new Central Terminal configuration partially re-opens in spring 2019 and debuts a modern design aesthetic, new moveable, family-friendly seating configurations, a live performance stage and charging stations.
Five restaurants will open on the south side of the Central Terminal by spring 2019, including Pei Wei Asian Diner, a fast-casual restaurant that honors Asian culinary tradition by wok-searing; Lucky Louie, a Northwest inspired quick serve seafood concept by Seattle celebrity chef Kathy Casey; Pallino’s, a local fast-casual Italian-American eatery; Evergreens, serving up gourmet build-your-own salads, wraps and grain bowls to-go; and Koi Shi Sushi Bento, with made-to-order Japanese delicacies.
The Port also announced two new restaurants, The Mariners Homeplate & Dugout Bar plus Salty’s at the SEA and BrewTop Social, which will open by summer 2020 when the Port completes construction of elevators and stairs to reach new mezzanine dining levels on the north and south sides.
Lance Lyttle, managing director of Sea-Tac Airport, said, “From amazing views to Pacific Northwest menus, our renovated Central Terminal takes the passenger experience to the next level. We are thrilled that our new Central Terminal will offer passengers a high-quality and memorable experience you can’t get anywhere except at Sea-Tac Airport.”
In addition to the latest round of Central Terminal restaurants, 10 other new food and beverage offerings are set to open at Sea-Tac Airport by spring 2019, including Poke to the Max; Le Grand Comptoir; Camden Food co; Starbucks Urban Market; The News Stand and Broadcast Coffee; Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen; Caffe D’arte; Skillet; Mi Casa Cantina; and Village Pub.
