US. HMSHost has partnered with local Chef Kathy Casey to provide travellers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport with more dining options from her award-winning kitchen.
Sea-Tac Airport’s Concourse B area is gaining a new restaurant, Rel’Lish Burger Lounge. The airport’s established Dish D’Lish has relocated from the Central Terminal to Concourse C.
“HMSHost is very excited about expanding our number of restaurant locations with Chef Kathy Casey, one of the Northwest’s most admired chefs,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Stephen Douglas. “Dish D’Lish has been wildly popular and the new Rel’Lish Burger Lounge concept has all the makings of another sought-after dining destination for travellers.”
Rel’Lish Burger Lounge is a new concept inspired by Casey’s signature style of delicious, uncomplicated food. The menu features a variety of signature burgers like the Over The Top Cheese Burger; stacked with House-Made Cheddar Ale Spread, Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese, and Hot Cheetos. A range of salads include the Beet and Arugula Salad with Rosemary Marcona Almonds, Pickled Onions, Goat Cheese, and Apple Vinaigrette; or the Rel’Lish Caesar with Kale and Roasted Tomato Tabbouleh.
Casey, known as the ‘Original Bar Chef’, has created a bespoke cocktail menu at Rel’Lish Burger Lounge, but will also offer cocktails-on-tap such as Northwest PomBerry Crush made with local vodka, lemon elixir, raspberry and pomegranate and topped with a splash of Chateau Ste. Michelle Sparkling Wine and NW Berries. A ‘burger to-go’ window provides a quick option for travellers limited for time, as well as a Dish D’Lish grab-and-go case. Opening is slated for early 2018.
“I’m so excited to open Rel’Lish Burger Lounge at Sea-Tac Airport. As a burger lover myself, I really wanted to not only have a delicious classic burger but also offer some really fun twists – like the Bahn Mi Burger and the Boiler Maker Burger with beer caramelised onions and whiskey BBQ – so great with a side car shot of whiskey! Local ingredients will be featured throughout the menu such as in the Northwest Chicken Burger with Washington Apple Chutney,” said Casey.
The relocated Dish D’Lish opened in late September. The restaurant continues to offer its stable of Food To Go-Go options including fresh salads, sandwiches, snacks, healthy dishes as well as Casey’s speciality products and cookbooks. New menu items include gluten-free friendly Savoury Egg Bites and Chia Oat Berry Cup.
“Dish D’Lish has become a traveller favourite for healthy alternatives,” said Casey. “From our fresh-baked Whole Grain Muffins to our house-made Tarragon Chicken Salad and my personal favourite, the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad — we have lots of options for vegetarians and gluten-free guests. We also offer tasty indulgences like our NW Chocolate Covered Berries, for those with a sweet tooth. I am thrilled to have a new location at Concourse C with HMSHost.”
Sea-Tac Airport Managing Director Lance Lyttle added: “The Port of Seattle is excited to provide travellers with new options from our award-winning dining and retail programme. Regional growth has brought more passengers through Sea-Tac, making the airport an even more valuable platform for local small business owners. We are thrilled to see a local, small businesses thrive here.”
