After the celebration, Ben’s Chili Bowl began serving travelers at the airport.

The airport says the opening of the new eatery is part of a larger redevelopment of the shops and dining options at National Airport and Dulles International Airport. In the past month, National Airport has opened new dining and shopping options including Legal Sea Foods, Brooks Brothers, Pinkberry and other shops.
