Chicago's Midway International Airport is serving up a gourmet upgrade with the opening of their new 'Central Market'--an oasis of culinary delights for the famished flyer. This revamped food court is set to take off at 11 a.m. Wednesday, marking the grand finale of the massive $400 million Midway Modernization Program.

According to NBC Chicago, the spruced-up space boasts local favorites such as Connie's Pizza, M Burger, and Beecher's Handmade Cheese. These new additions promise to elevate the airport grub game several notches above your run-of-the-mill terminal fare. And with Mayor Brandon Johnson slated to join in the ribbon-cutting festivities, it's clear this culinary landing is cleared for a first-class celebration.

But the tasty treats aren't just for those with a boarding pass. ABC 7 Chicago reports that a string of eateries, including the mouthwatering Garrett Popcorn Shop and the home-run hit, White Sox Bar and Grill, are part of the dozen retail stores and restaurants swinging open their doors to local and international visitors alike. "The city is thrilled to welcome all visitors," Mayor Johnson has said,  as per the city's vibrant expectations.
