The YVR Airport continues to propel itself forward in being one of the best airports in the world and it’s striving for that once again with some revamped food and beverage options.
It already has a plethora of awesome places to eat but it’s about to get even better. The next time you find out your travel plans are delayed—you can be sure there are some delicious eateries just waiting for you.
More than 20 new food and beverage concepts are in the works, that will open within the next two years. While it may seem far away, there will be a select few opening up as early as Summer of 2019.
Food Concepts Coming To YVR Airport
- Hawksworth Kitchen: In 2020, Canadian chef David Hawksworth is opening his first airport location in the Domestic Terminal. Taking inspiration from his celebrated Hawksworth and Nightingale restaurants, the traveler friendly menu will feature farm fresh dishes including organic salads, oven-fired pizzas, house pastas and cured meats.
- The Dirty Apron: This award-winning, chef-driven hometown deli will serve freshly-baked breads, locally sourced seasonal produce and meats.
- Steamworks Bar & Restaurant, Whistler Brewing Lodge and Red Truck Beer Stop developed in conjunction with Red Truck Beer Co. These concepts will add to YVR’s artisanal craft beer scene, while also delivering a mix of traditional mountain cuisine and hearty, brewpub fare.
- Other additions include Heritage Asian Eatery which specializes in contemporary Asian comfort food, Left Coast Café & Bar, BUILT Custom Burgers and for those heading off to the U.S., Wahlburgers.
- Tastes on the Fly, a boutique airport restaurant operator headquartered in San Francisco and creator of the award-winning Napa Farms Market, is bringing a local marketplace concept to YVR—Pacific Farms Market. Inspired by British Columbia’s vibrant and high-quality food scene, this concept will be available in both the Domestic and International Terminals. The International Terminal food market will be anchored with five made-to-order food stations including a grab-and-go section with 49th Parallel, one of Vancouver’s favourite coffee purveyors, and a selection of baked goods from Purebread Bakery; a sushi and poke station and much more.
A number of independent operators will also add to the variety of on-the-go options including Coastal Coffee, Subway and Japadog.
