A TOTAL OF 19 NEW shopping and dining options are now available to visitors at Chicago’s Midway International Airport, including the latest restaurant opening in the middle of Concourse B. The opening of a local favorite, Hubbard Inn, on June 15 marked a milestone of successfully repurposing concourse space to enhance the food offerings at the airport. The full concession redevelopment will offer more than 70 new concession options at the airport by the end of 2020.
