DCA: Modernism is Back

Arlington’s Reagan National Airport (DCA) is an architectural gem in many ways and it continues to bring new surprises along with homages to its past. dca_term_a_conceptThis summer, Terminal A, the modernist structure on the south end serving gates 1-9, completed a $37 million renovation. New modern travel amenities added include a spa, gourmet food and iPad charging stations, but one of the most exciting changes is the new restaurant, Page, opened by DC-based Chef Carla Hall.

Embracing the terminal’s modernist aesthetic, the restaurant brings a futuristic design with fresh new lighting, modern seats, and architectural design features embracing its central location in the terminal. The restaurant caters to the tech-savvy traveler, with iPads at almost every seat for reviewing the menu, ordering your meal, checking your flight status and browsing the web (there are 115 seats and 75 iPads). In addition to marrying history and technology, the restaurant features locally inspired favorites such as Pimento Cheese Dip, Cured Ham and Biscuits, Virginia She Crab Soup, Chesapeake Oysters, and BBQ Cobb Salad.

Be sure to check out Terminal A next time you are flying in and out of DCA. Note that Page Restaurant is located beyond security.
