Now Open in Terminal 2!
Surdyk’s Flights is now open in Terminal 2 at the Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport. The much-anticipated second location of the award-winning
restaurant, bar, and retail market Surdyk’s Flights is now open in Terminal 2-Humphrey of the
Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Taylor Surdyk, CEO of Surdyk’s Flights, has teamed again with Minneapolis-based design firm
Shea, Inc. to expand upon the original concept, which opened in 2010. Surdyk’s Flights features all of the class and comforts of the Terminal 1 location: a full-service restaurant, bar, and offsale wine market. The Terminal 2 location debuts a separate wine room next to the restaurant, in which travelers may browse the expertly curated selection of wine offerings to buy and take with them to their final destination.
Like the original location, Terminal 2 will feature a “patio” seating area that extends out into the
concourse, but the new Terminal 2 patio features a full, second bar with both beer and wine on
tap for patrons. Overhead are re-creations of the antique wine bottle chandeliers that currently
hang in Surdyk’s Liquor Store at East Hennepin and University. The new chandeliers were
handmade by Minneapolis artist Frank Stone.
Surdyk’s Flights in Terminal 2 will be offering their signature flights of wine, a classic and
signature drink menu, imported beers, wine by the glass and premium spirits. The artisanal
menu includes small plates, charcuterie, cheeses, salads and sandwiches, as well as introducing
earlier hours of operation and an expanded breakfast menu to accommodate a greater number
of morning travelers. Those who find themselves with not enough time for a sit-down
experience can take advantage of Flights’ grab-and-go case, so passengers can board their
planes armed with a delicious carry-on.
Surdyk’s Flights was awarded 1st place in the category of Best New Food and Beverage concept, recognizing innovative and outstanding airport concessions by the Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA) in December 2011. Most recently, it was mentioned in conjunction with MSP Airport as being “The Best Two Hour Layover” by Yahoo! Travel.
