The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) joined the Midway Partnership this week in celebrating the opening of two new food and beverage options for travelers at Midway International (MDW)– DeCOLORES Mexican restaurant and Einstein Bros. Bagels.
Both new restaurants are on Concourse A and are part of the three-year, $75 million concessions expansion at MDW.
DeCOLORES features delicious modern twists on traditional Mexican favorites and is the first airport foray by Chef Sergio Reyes and his wife, Priscilla, who opened their signature local restaurant in 2009. Einstein Bros. Bagels is well-known for freshly baked bagels and variety of schmear toppings.
Airport officials note that DeCOLORES and Einstein Bros. Bagels are 100 percent owned and operated by an Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) with Midway Partnership, the group behind the transformation of the concessions offerings.
“These new restaurants epitomize the goals of our concessions modernization program—which are to deliver world class dining options and a mix of local favorites that will give passengers a sense of place and another reason to travel Chicago-Midway,” says CDA Commissioner Jamie Rhee.
