Spring Rolls, BBQ, and French Sammies Coming to an Airport Restaurant Near You
We’re not sure if this is the year of airport eats, but it’s getting pretty darn close. Gone are the days of prepackaged sandwiches and stale pizza, as airports around the globe are really creating their own restaurant scene. Here are just a few airports worth checking out on your next layover.
Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport
The suburban shopping mall is expanding out towards the airport, as a chain restaurant favorite is finally making an appearance within the terminal. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is now home the world’s only airport edition of PF Chang’s, so feel free to get an order of those lettuce wraps between flights. Asian inspired cuisine can be found on the upper mezzanine of Concourse A—the former home of a Chili's—and they’ll even be serving breakfast.
New York's JFK Airport
At New York’s JFK the hits keep on coming over at Terminal 2, as Delta keeps pouring in the cash and new ideas to spruce and spiff things up. The plan is to bring new ideas and flavors, as well as whole bunch of iPads—after all, it’s more fun to order that way. New options that will be rolling in include Due Amici—think rustic Italian tastes with plenty of meat and cheese platters—as well as the BRKLYN Beer Garden and its 20 beers on tap. A French sandwich shop—Croque Madame—will be serving stuff up right in the terminal, as well as a Japanese spot called Shiso.
San Diego's Lindbergh Field
In San Diego new stuff is all part of the recently upgraded and expanded west section of Terminal 2. Local spot Phil’s BBQ brings ribs, chicken, and all the associated sides right into the airport. Other new restaurants include Bubbles Seafood and Wine Bar, Seaside Stack Shack, and Stone Brewing Company. Last but not least is Jack in the Box—watch out McDonald’s—as this fast food outpost is actually the first one to open up at an airport.
