Good Food, Good Meat, Good God, Let's Eat (at the Airport)!

No matter how smoothly your Thanksgiving travel goes you’re still going to need to grab something to eat on the road, and that’s especially the case if you're spending time waiting at the airport. Sure there are the old standbys, but there are also a few new airport restaurants making their debut just in time for the holiday travel season.
Down in Atlanta there’s plenty of fine dining—One Flew South—and not so fine dining—Chick-fil-A—options, but now there’s one more addition to the restaurant roundup at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Celeb chef Lorena Garcia just cut the ribbon on Lorena Garcia Tapas, and you can find it over in the Concourse F Mezzanine of the brand new International Terminal.
Expect stuff like mango glazed chicken wings, turkey bacon wrapped dates with goat cheese, and a citrus chicken marinated avocado wrap. Of course there will also be plenty of wines, beers, and cocktails from which to choose—and to get you through the holidays.
Next is Salt Lake City International Airport, and while they don’t have any television chefs, they do have several new dining options. In total there are thirteen fresh options, and most of them have local ties to Salt Lake City. In the food court between the C and D Concourses is now Café Rio—that’s a local Mexican restaurant—as well as a spot that's called Greek Souvlaki.
There’s also another local option with Market Street Grill, and there’s even a new Starbucks which is just one of three new latte locations. Other new stuff includes Smashburger, Salt Lake City Pizza and Pasta, Vivace Cucina Toscana, and High West Distillery and Saloon—among a few others. Definitely won’t die of hunger over at SLC, but you might get hungry deciding what to choose.
