Food at Detroit airport makes magazine’s top 10 list

The May issue of Food & Wine magazine includes its Global Tastemakers awards voted on by readers that celebrate culinary destinations ranging from airports to hotels to cities.

Detroit Metropolitan Airport is on the list of the 10 best US airports for food. The list was based on reader input over the last three years. Specifically mentioned are two hometown coney spots: Leo’s Coney Island inside the McNamara Terminal and National Coney Island inside the Warren Cleage Evans Terminal. Also listed is the Atwater Brewery in the Evans Terminal.

“Detroit has balanced its restaurant roster to cater to travelers on all schedules: quick bites, a cup of coffee while making a mad dash to a gate, or a lingering meal to fill a couple of hours,” says Food & Wine. “But that’s not all the local flavors at the airport. There’s Andiamo, Papa Joe’s and Plum Market with Zingerman’s offerings among the local favorites at the airport.”
