Air Margaritaville coming to Detroit’s Metro Airport

From MLive: “Jimmy Buffett’s first Air Margaritaville in Midwest coming to Michigan

You can enjoy a little taste of the Caribbean before actually headed to the Caribbean as Jimmy Buffett’s first Air Margaritaville restaurant in the Midwest is set to open at Detroit Metro Airport.

And that’s not the only new dining option planned for the airport’s North Terminal. Coming soon will be: Detroit Scene Cafe featuring Zingerman’s Coffee, Atwater Brewery, MOD Pizza, Anita’s Kitchen Lebanese Cafe, Brioche Doree, Cantoro Italian Market Trattoria, Chick fil-A, Pei Wei, Common Grace Coffee Company, Jolly Pumpkin and National Coney Island.

Construction begins this fall. “For the first time since the North Terminal opened in 2008, we’re completely refreshing our food and beverage program,” said Wayne County Airport Authority Interim CEO Chad Newton.

The nearly $21 million transformation will happen in phases. The first phase will begin with construction in the fall of 2018 and finish with the opening of new concessions in the spring of 2019. The final phase is expected to wrap up by the spring of 2020.
