Changes are afoot at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. One of Austin’s best casual dining options, Second Bar + Kitchen (which made my best burgers and best pizza lists last year), has begun construction on its location at Gate 7 at the airport. The restaurant will take over the area previously occupied by ThunderCloud Subs and Ruta Maya and is expected to open by the end of the year.

TCloud, which is temporarily closed, is moving down to Gate 18 and Ruta Maya is currently operating out of a kiosk. I’ll get you more information on Second’s hours and a menu when I find out. In addition to Second, some more “refreshing changes” will soon be coming to the airport, according to an ABIA rep, as a call was recently put out for new concessions. If the rumors I am hearing are true, the new vendors are going to really help mark ABIA as home of one of the best dining operations for an airport its size in this country.
