NORTH CLARENDON - Restaurant operator Dan King plans to open "The Plane Bagel" in the terminal of the Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport in North Clarendon. According to an airport source, the snack bar will open Dec. 1.
Peter Fisk, president of Green Mountain Flyers EAA chapter located at the airport, told fellow pilots in a recent e-mail announcement that, "King has been cleaning, supplying and organizing, looking forward to being open on a schedule of weekdays, from about 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., with a menu of breakfast items including homemade bagels followed by lunch with soup, sandwiches and salads. He is looking at a limited weekend schedule and will publish that soon on his web site www.theplanebagel.com."
King's airport restaurant website is currently under development.
Until King's announcement, the airport's restaurant had remained vacant since the early 2000s.
