Dining at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is about to get a massive upgrade, thanks to a slew of new restaurants in the works. The Port of Seattle announced the upcoming openings in 2017, and the first of a wave of newcomers has arrived, including Rel’Lish Burger Lounge (B Gates) and vegetarian Floret (intersection of Concourses A and B). It’s all part of a massive overhaul that will see a total of 135 new dining and retail options at the airport.

The timelines on the other openings range from mid to late February through 2020 and beyond. Among the most exciting additions are spin-offs of popular Seattle establishments like Li’l Woody’s, Sunset Fried Chicken, Good Bar, Macrina Bakery, and Cafe Ladro.
