Morrisville, N.C. — Six new dining concepts are headed to Raleigh-Durham International Airport's Terminal 2, officials announced Thursday.
Cary's Bond Brothers Beer Company and Raleigh Taproom, which is from Raleigh Brewing Company, will open Saturday. Raleigh Brewing is also planning to open Raleigh Brewing Tavern in Terminal 1 later this year.
Also opening this weekend is Cantina Grill, which will offer a diverse menu from breakfast through dinner, in addition to local beer and spirits.
Three more concepts are set to open in Terminal 2 by mid-January. Those options include Deli & Co., which will serve healthy, organic options, Rush Bowls, which will feature smoothies and bowls with fresh fruit, and Wow Bae, a fast-casual Asian concept serving steamed dumplings, rice bowls and Bao.
Bruegger’s Bagels and California Pizza Kitchen will remain in operation, with the latter offering an expanded menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner options, plus beer and wine.
The RDU International Airport is a finalist for the 2019 WRAL.com Voters' Choice Award for "Best Place to People Watch." The venue was also a finalist in 2018. Bond Brothers is a finalist again this year for "Best Brewery," an award it won in 2017 and 2018. The winners of the 2019 WRAL.com Voters' Choice Awards will be announced on Jan. 9.
