Exciting! It's not clear from the article, but I assume these will be replacing the current concession stands, rather than the building of new food/marketplace areas?

I take it that District will not be offering its Sunday bottomless mimosa brunch at the airport?

Sad news...

On one hand, OAK becomes more competitive in term of the terminal offerings. On the other hand, everything will be way much more expensive.

It is the exact case happening at SFO.

Hopefully more coffee overall - the Starbucks lines are crazy in the mornings

Excellent news. I thought the SFO venues are charging essentially their in-city prices. Of course, these aren't bargain fast food joints, but I'd rather have "less, good food" than "more, bad food."

Thanks for the image, that's exactly what I was looking for! Sort of sad that the outposts for First and Last Chance, and Fenton's will be gone, but looking forward to seeing the new vendors!

There are reasons why the most popular joints at SFO are Wendy's and BK...

Interesting, but I spend all of my pre-flight time at OAK in the Escape Lounge these days. Such a nice little lounge in the mornings.

Chili's Too has serious airport surcharges as it is. Looking forward to District opening up.
