SEATTLE — Exclusive new burgers and signature cocktails have now landed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Celebrated Seattle chef and burger connoisseur Kathy Casey, in partnership with global restaurateur HMSHost, has opened Rel’Lish Burger Lounge on Sea-Tac Airport’s Concourse B.
Rel’Lish Burger Lounge is a new concept inspired by Kathy Casey’s motto that great food doesn’t have to be complicated to be delicious. The chic full-service restaurant features a variety of unique burgers, each built with creative toppings like the Over the Top Cheese Burger layered with house-made cheddar ale spread crafted with Pike Place Ale, Tillamook pepper jack cheese, and hot Cheetos; as well as the Bahn Mi Burger topped with pickled red onions, jalapeño, cucumber, herb lettuce, and spicy soy aioli.
In addition to more than a half a dozen burger options, travelers can enjoy a unique range of salads including the Beet and Arugula Salad with rosemary marcona almonds, pickled onions, goat cheese, and apple vinaigrette. Other signature items include the Cheeseburger Cheeseburger…Soup – yes, a soup that is topped with fries and pickles.
Morning travelers can treat themselves to a variety of breakfast offerings such as tasty breakfast sandwiches like the Brunchin Burger topped with an egg and served with hollandaise for dipping, as well as the Chicken N’ Rooster with scrambled egg, Sriracha cream cheese, tomato, and arugula on a brioche bun. Wash it down with a signature Rel’Lish Bloody Mary made with local Aloo vodka and garnished with a pickled Washington green bean, asparagus and pepper – you can also upgrade with a pepperoni straw!
Casey, known for her cocktails, offers a wide selection of drinks at the bar where guests can enjoy hand-crafted cocktails using local spirits and Cocktails On-Tap made with premium spirits and fresh juices such as the Northwest Berries & Bubbles featuring Oregon’s Crater Lake vodka, fresh lemon elixir, topped with a splash of Chateau Ste. Michelle sparkling wine and NW berries. There is also an assortment of local craft beer and regional wine.
“I’m so excited to open Rel’Lish Burger Lounge at Sea-Tac Airport.
As a frequent traveler myself, I wanted to not only offer crave-able burgers, but also unique salads for those looking for something lighter. At Rel’Lish, anyone can enjoy a great meal – guests can order any burger with an Impossible Burger plant based patty. In addition to our brioche buns we are also offering gluten-free buns and a bunless option.”
– Kathy Casey
Local ingredients like Mama Lil’s Peppers and Dish D’Lish Washington Apple Chutney will also be featured throughout the menu not only in the food but also in the bar – as my motto has always been to incorporate the freshness of the kitchen into the bar, said Kathy Casey who is often lauded as the first Bar Chef.
The restaurant offers a relaxing and inviting atmosphere with beautiful wood finishes and a mid-century modern flair as well as natural light flowing in from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the tarmac – perfect for plane watching and enjoying a meal and drink.
For travelers in a hurry, there is a convenient burger to-go window and a Food T’ Go-Go® grab-and-go case featuring healthy options from sister brand Dish D’Lish®. From breakfast, to lunch, to dinner, or a quick cocktail – guests will be able to Rel’Lish the Moment™ any time of day.
