The gastronomically superior McNamara Terminal in Detroit Metropolitan Airport received another upgrade today with the opening of P.F. Chang's second airport location. Situated across from Gate 38, the new dining option features the chain's first grab-and-go station, as well as breakfast, and condensed lunch and dinner menu.
Mike Welborn, president of Global Brand Development for P.F. Chang's tells Eater the company's initial foray into airport dining in Atlanta International Airport has proven a success. "It worked spectacularly," he says. "It's one of our best performing locations." Welborn says the company plans to expand their airport format. P.F. Chang's has "bids in at a number of locations around the U.S."
The Detroit iteration features two new quick-service features to the airport dining format: a grab-and-go station and iPad ordering, a system that allows orders to be taken quickly and customers to swipe their cards at the table. Breakfast is also exclusive to the chain's two airport locations. The menu includes savory items like fried rice and classic bacon and eggs.
The McNamara Terminal is in the midst of a major dining revamp. Illy Coffee and Fountain Bar opened near the A40 Gate in November, while brewpub Gordon Biersch and the Longhorn Steakhouse were revealed in December.
