The onslaught of impressive dining and retail upgrades at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport continues. Skillet, the longtime Seattle diner which recently started serving its burgers and fries in the North Satellite, will open a second airport restaurant on Concourse C in 2020. There’s also a new restaurant called Neighborhood, which serves sandwiches, salads, antipasto platters, beer, and wine.

There are still a slew of new options in the works, with openings spread between the rest of this year and into 2021. Here’s a look at some of the pending additions:

Concourse D

  • Poke to the Max, late 2019
  • Sunset Fried Chicken, early 2020

Central Terminal

  • Trailhead BBQ, late 2019
  • Salty’s at the Sea and Brewtop Social: summer 2020

Concourse B

  • Mi Casa Cantina, late 2019
  • Lou Lou Market and Bar, 2020

Concourse A

  • Capitol Hill Food Hall, early 2020

Concourse C

  • 9th and Pike Artisanal Sandwiches and Salads, 2020
  • Skillet, 2020

North Satellite

  • Li’l Woody’s, mid-2021
  • 9th and Pike Artisanal Sandwiches and Salads, mid-2021 (pre-security)

There’s also an outpost of Pioneer Square’s excellent cocktail bar, Good Bar, opening in the South Satellite, but that timeline is still up in the air. Lou Lou Market and Bar (previously called Lummi Marche) will be a French-meets-Pacific Northwest restaurant and market run by chef Thierry Rautureau, who also owns Seattle French restaurants Loulay and Luc.

9th and Pike Artisanal Sandwiches and Salads will be run by the folks behind Bambuza. The restaurant will serve “Northwest-inspired sandwiches, wraps and salads in a gourmet-quality quick-serve concept.”

It’s all part of a massive overhaul at the airport, which is attempting to refocus its dining and retail on more businesses with more local flavor. So far, that effort has yielded restaurants like Floret, the vegetarian spot from the folks behind Cafe Flora, and Kathy Casey’s gourmet burger restaurant, Rel’lish Burger Lounge.
