In this licensing agreement between Manzella’s restaurant group and the airport concessionaire, Colorado-based Mission Yogurt, Inc., TAPS will offer a full bar, six craft brews on tap, and a slimmed-down menu focusing on entrees such as Chilean sea bass, sustainable salmon and other popular offerings.
There will be fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail, market fish sandwich and tacos, New England clam chowder, brewer’s fish and chips, varieties of calamari, ceviche and more. In the morning, TAPS will dish up breakfast tacos, smoked salmon with bagels, Bloody Marys, and other eye-openers. Those rushing for a flight can snag grab-and-go items.
The look will be similar to TAPS in Irvine with brick, finished wood, and earth tones. “It will be contemporary but warm,” Manzella said.
