BWI, Fraport Open Shirley’s Café, R&R Seafood Bar

Fraport Maryland, a division of Fraport USA, this week announced that travelers to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) can now dine at two new regional favorites – Miss Shirley’s Café and R&R Seafood Bar.

Located in the Concourse A extension, the new eateries are joined by District Market, which features local specialties such as Otterbein’s Cookies.

“We are thrilled to welcome these delightful additions to BWI Marshall Airport. Despite the delays this past year due to the pandemic, seeing Miss Shirley’s new cafe, a beautiful R&R Seafood Bar, and District Market now open for passengers makes all the difference,” said Gary Gilliard, vice president of Fraport Maryland, the developer and manager of the retail program at BWI. “The response has been very positive.”

Miss Shirley’s Café, a local family-owned restaurant, is a new 2,100-square-foot café and full bar with specialties that include the Spicy Shirley, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, griddle cakes and three-egg omelets, plus soups, salads and sandwiches.

R&R Seafood Bar offers crab cake, raw oysters, and the popular Crabby Mary cocktail in an open 1,830-square-foot restaurant and bar with counter seating for 47 guests.

“These iconic brands give our guests a taste of what the Baltimore/Washington region has to offer,” says Ricky Smith, BWI executive director/CEO. “It’s a testament to our commitment to enhance the passenger experience by bringing more local flavor to our program and all our retail, food and service offerings at the airport.”
