A half dozen restaurants will be opening in the new 14-gate concourse currently under construction at Reagan National Airport.
The new eateries that will open to travelers in the replacement for DCA’s infamous “Gate 35X” include four local companies — Elevation Burger, Timber Pizza, Founding Farmers and Mezeh — as well as two national chains: Peet’s Coffee and P.F. Chang’s. A WHSmith book store and a Capitol File-branded travel store are also planned.
“More than 14,000 square feet of new food, beverage and retail options will be added to the airport’s wide array of passenger choices when new security checkpoints and a 14-gate concourse open to the public,” the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said of its new tenants in an announcement Wednesday.
The $1 billion “Project Journey” is expected to wrap up in 2021.
