2 new dining options open over weekend at Charleston airport

Caviar & Bananas will open a new restaurant at Charleston International Airport on Sunday.

Charleston International Airport travelers will find two new places to eat this weekend.

Burger King opens Saturday, followed on Sunday by Caviar & Bananas. Both are accessible only to ticket-holding passengers.

The new restaurants are part of the continuing redevelopment of the state’s busiest airport, which is winding down a $200 million expansion and overhaul.

“Passengers now have some exciting new dining options, and this will be the best of two worlds,” said Greg Leonard, general manager of Delaware North Companies, which handles food concessions at the airport. “We have a well-known national brand in Burger King, and we have a one of Charleston’s finest dining establishments in Caviar & Bananas.”

The two restaurants will join DeSano Pizza Bakery, which opened in 2015, at the airport. Others are slated to open in the fall. They include Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear Grill, Harvest & Grounds kiosk and Charleston Beer Works.

“Delaware North has done a great job of ensuring that our passengers have had dining choices during our construction while they worked tirelessly to bring these new brands to the renovated airport,” said Paul Campbell, executive director and CEO of Charleston County Aviation Authority, which oversees the airport.
