Fraport has brought well-known Western Pennsylvania chain Primanti Bros. to Pittsburgh International (PIT), so that travelers can experience the restaurant’s burgers and other sandwiches topped with fresh-cut fries and coleslaw.
The 2,700-square-foot restaurant in the airport’s Center Core boasts a hand-painted mural by local artist Dave Klug, which features Steel City legends, ranging from industry titans and sports greats to Mister Rogers.
“Starting today, travelers can enjoy Primanti Bros. right here at the airport,” says Fraport USA President/CEO Ben Zandi. “We’re honored to bring more of our region’s food and culture into the terminal with this dining legend. It doesn’t get any more Pittsburgh than Primanti Bros.”
Primanti Bros., which has 45 locations, is expanding its menu for the 100-seat airport restaurant, adding breakfast sandwiches and other morning treats to its traditional offerings of appetizers, fries, soups, sandwiches and salads. The location also serves beer, cocktails and wine.
“Nothing says welcome to Pittsburgh quite like Primanti Bros.,” says Eric Sprys, chief commercial officer for the Allegheny County Airport Authority. “Sense of place is important and we will continue to focus on bringing more of Pittsburgh’s restaurants into the terminal. When you land, it should feel like a part of Pittsburgh.”
