Iron Chef Morimoto Will Soon Be Slinging Yakitori Right Out of LAX
September 4, 2012 at 7:09 AM
We’ve suggested that airports might become dining destinations regardless of whether you’re trying to catch a flight, and that might just be the case for LAX sooner rather than later. There’s still a little bit of planning and preparation needed, but if all goes according to plan an Iron Chef will soon be arriving at the airport.
Masaharu Morimoto is bringing his unique take on cuisine right into the middle of the airport, as the restaurant is set to debut September 13 right in the middle of Terminal 5. It sounds like the chef is going to focus on something he’s calling "fast casual street food." Thankfully this new take on airport dining also comes with a decent price tag, as the bits and bites will probably run between $9 and $15.
The restaurant—it’s called Skewers—will be mainly fried offerings as well as yakitori items on a stick. We can’t see how this restaurant opening could be seen as a bad thing, and it’ll be nice to be able to taste and sample the Morimoto experience without the need for reservations or an expense account. Our only complaint is that we don’t have any plans to travel to or through LAX anytime soon, but we guess we’ll just have to change that.
