Core values

San Francisco International Airport’s new Harvey Milk Terminal 1 features six new F&B outlets, with more to come in Phase 2 next year.

The opening of San Francisco International Airport’s new Harvey Milk Terminal 1 – named after California’s first openly gay elected public official, who was assassinated in 1978 – brought with it a host of new F&B openings, with more to come next year.

Tastes on the Fly introduced a Starbird quick-service chicken restaurant featuring chicken sandwiches, salads and tacos. Its menu also includes breakfast sandwiches and grab-and-go items.

“We are delighted to bring Starbird, the premium quick-service chicken restaurant, and a local Bay Area favourite, to the Harvey Milk Terminal,” said Tastes on the Fly CEO Michael Levine. “Their core values align with our values and those of the San Francisco Airport.”

Starbird has a ‘positively delicious chicken’ tagline and chickens are raised locally and sustainably farmed. Bread is fresh baked and vegetables are cut and pickled in-house.

Other openings in Harvey Milk T1 include:

Bun Mee – Vietnamese cuisine including pho noodle soup, fresh shrimp spring rolls and banh mi sandwiches

Illy Caffe – Specialty coffee, baked goods, paninis, salads, and desserts

The Little Chihuahua – A homegrown San Francisco taqueria focusing on sustainability and wholesome Mexican food

Amy's Drive Thru – Sustainably focused café offering veggie, vegan and gluten-free burgers, burritos and pizzas

Bourbon Pub – Chef Michael Mina’s take on pub fare including burgers, wings, fish and chips, tacos, and (of course) bourbon

Phase 2 of the new terminal is due to open in March 2020, and will bring outlets including Goldilock’s Filipino Cuisine, the Mediterranean-style The Bistrot Bay Area, and Flyaway by Drakes’ Brewing Co.

The new Harvey Milk Terminal 1 features a temporary exhibition devoted to the famed gay rights campaigner. Starbird, Illy Caffe, Bun Mee and The Little Chihuahua (pictured below) are some of the new openings
