Any idea if it would be pre or post security? "Near boarding area A" instead of "in boarding area A" makes me think it's pre-security (and that would make it easier to ferry food from the city to the airport multiple times per day). Would it replace the South Food Court pre-security?

I imagine it would be the pre-security mirror image of the pre-security G side restaurants that are also undergoing renovation?

Post-security, according to the bid document on the city's website. Unfortunately FlyerTalk isn't letting me post URLs because my account is too new, so I can't link to it

Interestingly, looks like terminal A is getting 3 new food vendors, all post-security:
  • A 3200 sq ft food hall, replacing the current Coach & Burberry stores
  • A 2000 sq ft historic restaurant, replacing the current Amoura Cafe & US News store
  • A 350 sq ft coffee kiosk, in what looks to be a space not currently occupied by any vendor

Perhaps you could post an edited version of the url, such as "<something> dot <something> dot com."

Yup, that's it! And elsewhere on that site you can find the RFPs for the other food vendors, too.

Signage went up within the past month. I asked a vendor working near the construction site for a projected opening date, and was told October.

I'd rather they open an El Farolito

(Or any decent taqueria)

It's a pain having to BART to the mission and back on every long layover, heh

Plenty of taquerias in South San Francisco ... one is even called El Farolito

Taco Cala is pretty amazing. Everyone I've ever taken there has made me take them again. The mother resto isn't that impressive

The international terminal has some good pre-security options as well. They have a Samovar Tea House, and I had some decent tacos near (but outside) G security.

Tartine is next-level in my opinion.

I had a surprisingly good lunch at Samovar Tea House last month - surprising because it was good and it was in an airport.
