Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood were challenged to design a two-sided restaurant in an existing vacant space to accommodate passengers on the secure and non-secure side of the TSA security. To accomplish this task, a security wall was created that was half glass and half wall with a full bar on each side.

The kitchen is located on the secure side and serves food on both sides of the restaurant. The food conveyance system, which was designed around TSA requirements, is what makes this concept work. The architect used a Sally Port system that has been used in 3 other airports across the county. What is unique about this location is that this is the first time it has been used to convey food and drink products from secure server to non-secure server, while the three other locations serve food from a secure kitchen to a non-secure dining room. This unit moves in one direction and a server operates it manually. If anything moves too far around the Sally Port it falls in to a “dump” so nothing can pass through from the non-secure side to the secure side.
