'Dallas Cowboys Club' Now a Thing Over at DFW Airport

July 30, 2015 at 9:40 AM | by | ()

Football fans, or more specifically Dallas Cowboys fans, have a new favorite watering hole to call home when to or through Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport.

The latest addition to DFW's dining scene is the Dallas Cowboys Club, a full service restaurant now serving sports lovers in Terminal A.

The space, outfitted with plenty of football fan flourishes, has room for 80 hungry and thirsty fans — plus, of course, plenty of television screens to catch the game. The restaurant features a stadium shaped bar, and when it comes to food expect plenty of Texas-inspired grub: regional specialties, a little Tex-Mex, and of course plenty of wine, beer, and cocktails. How 'bout them Cowboys?!

AirGrub Is A Handy Ordering App For The Terminally Hungry

July 22, 2015 at 9:00 AM | by | ()

When you're hungry at the airport, having to wait in line at Sbarro or Starbucks is a drag. Your airport time is valuable; you have things to do, commitments to keep, loops of CNN to watch and the latest issue of US Weekly to read. Thankfully one company values your worth, and they’re helping you out with an airport meal-based ordering app, now live in San Francisco and Boston.

Travelers going through SFO and BOS are the first to have access to AirGrub, an app that lets you enter your flight info, browse menus from restaurants within your terminal, place an order, schedule when you want to pick it up, and — with the quick flash of a boarding pass once you clear security — cut the line to grab your meal to eat in the airport or take on the plane.

So far the the folks behind the app have made dining mates with spots like Perry’s in SFO's Terminal 1, Napa Farms Market in Terminal 2, and Yankee Pier in Terminal 3. But with Boston just added and New York on the horizon, we're sure in due time you'll be scheduling caramel macchiato pick-ups from coast to caffeinated coast.

Here Are Some New Airport Eats Heading To Washington, DC

July 3, 2015 at 1:30 PM | by | ()

Your layover in DC just got better, as some new dining options area headed to the airports that serve America's capital. (Yes, we bring you this exciting news just in time for July Fourth. Cue the fireworks!)

The good news comes via Eater, which reports that later this year two DC-serving airports will say "bon appétit" to some new options. In the heart of the city Reagan National airport's Terminal B/C will score some fast casual Thai and Chinese courtesy of Big Bowl, plus Georgetown Gourmet Market, which will serve salads, soups, and sammies will all do their thing at Terminal C.

Meanwhile, Dulles International airport (just over the Virginia border) will add a Five Guys and Subway location to take care of your chain burgers-and-subs cravings. However, if you’re looking for something a little substantial, ubiquitous celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck will be welcoming his 10,000th restaurant — that's our latest estimate — called The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck.

Flight delayed? At least now you'll have some more spots to feed.

'Bar Symon' is Now Open at Washington-Dulles Airport

March 6, 2015 at 10:16 AM | by | ()

Fans of The Chew, Cleveland, or just celebrity chefs in general need to plan a little extra time in their travels, as there’s a new restaurant doing its thing at Washington-Dulles that might just be worthy of a layover.

Michael Symon and associates recently cut the ribbon on Bar Symon, and it is now open for business within Terminal D near Gate 16. We have not had a chance to enjoy a little airport dining as of yet, but it sounds like travelers can expect sandwiches, burgers, and other goodies—complete with both Greek and Italian influences.

DFW Airport, the Gateway to BBQ and Beer, is Now Trying to Get Healthy

February 4, 2015 at 10:46 AM | by | ()

Just the other week we told you where to get beer, bourbon and barbecue when visiting Forth Worth. But should you overindulge in all that BBB goodness, you'll be happy to know that the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport will help you get back on your diet with their new, "Healthy + Happy" promotion. (Side note: Uh, should Walgreens be concerned here about this name?)

Airport officials have worked with restaurants in and around the terminals, and as a result each and every one of DFW’s more than 150 restaurants now features at least one low-cal, low-fat, or some other low-this or free-of-that menu selection. Think stuff like oatmeal bowls with fresh fruit, roasted corn and lime tacos, veggie wraps, and plenty of egg whites for those breakfast sandwiches.

Where to Find Each and Every Vino Volo Airport Location

December 19, 2014 at 6:57 AM | by | ()

The holiday travel season is in full swing, and that means the uncertainty of a layover, an inconvenience, or just some generalized airport anxiety. That’s where alcohol comes into the picture! We’re kidding of course, but a nice glass of wine at the airport never seems to make things worse.

Better than a dingy airport bar is a classy and clean wine bar, and you can’t get much better than Vino Volo. It also certainly doesn’t hurt that they have plenty of locations at airports around the globe, and that they offer up free WiFi along with some light bites to eat. So whether it’s a chardonnay or some merlot to go – here’s where to find each and every airport location of Vino Volo:

Here’s something we can certainly get behind, and if you’re headed out of town this month—you’ll probably enjoy it too. Establishments across the United States and Canada are offering up fixed menus for a fixed cost, as it’s time to celebrate Airport Restaurant Month.

LAX Preps for Yet Another Crazy Major Facelift

September 17, 2014 at 10:18 AM | by | ()

Earlier this year, LAX, the airport everyone loves to hate, unveiled their newest and flashest digs at Tom Bradley International Terminal and we thought it was pretty cool. Now it's Terminal 1 and 2's turn to revamp, and all with the help of Westfield.

After signing the $300 million check to refresh the tired space that's known as home to Air Canada and Virgin Atlantic (amongst others), airport officials now plan to create a unique experience divided up into three separate "districts." The terminal will be a far departure from the standard hallways you see now, as it introduces a "Commercial Hub" that connects to a Dining Terrace featuring plenty of lounge-style seating allowing travelers to end up in "The Strand," an open, flowing dining and shopping district with a grand, flowing staircase leading to a mezzanine with café that overlooks the common-area below.

9 Independent Coffee Shops You Can Find at Airports

September 9, 2014 at 11:09 AM | by | ()

When it comes to grabbing a cup of coffee at the airport, there's typically okay options and then there are great options. Sometimes a craving goes beyond just caffeine; travelers are increasingly requesting specially sourced beans and freshly roasted offerings and, luckily, airports are listening.

Here’s some of our picks for the best coffee shops alternatives—independent and otherwise—at airports across the country:

Kofe by Intelligentsia: ORD Terminal 5

This spot from the Intelligentsia folks has regular roasts, monthly specials, and it’s all done in a European-style stand-up coffee shop. Find it past security in International Terminal 5 at Chicago-O’Hare.

Klatch Coffee: LAX Terminal 7

Thanks to a reader for mentioning this one. The newest location of this LAX option can be found within Terminal 7, and they have some great goodies to go along with their award winning beans and brews—think freshly baked scones, cookies, and cappuccino muffins.

Abica Coffee: ATL

Okay this place might not have the same pedigree as some of the other independent options, but it’s a nice alternative to Starbucks—grab a cup at Atlanta’s Airport over in Concourse A near Gate 27.

More Local Restaurants Take the Leap into PDX's Food Court

August 6, 2014 at 11:56 AM | by | ()

When we last left Portland International Airport we were busy admiring their beautiful airport carpet designs, but now we’re back and we’re investigating something a little more delicious. A bunch of famous local eats from the city’s foodie scene are making their way past security and into the terminals and concourses. Best of all we won’t have to wait years and years for a first taste, as the first will likely debut early next year.

It sounds like plenty of vendors, restaurants, and other shops are running out of time on their leases. That means that a whole bunch of establishments will be changing hands, and that allows spots like Bunk Sandwiches, Bunk Sandwiches, and Mo's Chowder to open a few new airport locations to offer up some on the go eats.

We can hardly keep up with how great things are over at Changi Airport, but yet again we’re ready to share some news about what fun stuff they’re adding to the terminals and concourses.

This week the airport is adding a little bit of the local foodie scene, as they’re taking a creative spin on the airport food court. The new options are all included within what they’re calling "Singapore Food Street," as they’re introducing 13 local hawker stalls right into the airport.

Your Next International Flight from Chicago's O'Hare Airport Might Not Suck

April 14, 2014 at 10:52 AM | by | ()

If your travels have brought you through Chicago O'Hare's International Terminal, then you may have noticed that it's hardly the nicest place to spend some pre-flight time. Alas, that was then and this is now, because as of last week, passengers are now being welcomed into a totally refreshed Terminal 5, featuring Chicago hometown brands and international boutiques.

The project totaled $26 million and two years of overhauling, but the terminal now boasts a wider variety of airside activities. Chicago restaurant masters, Lettuce Entertain You, have opened several of their mainstay eateries (Big Bowl, Wow Bao, Urban Olive, Hub51 and R.J. Grunts) and, if you need a pick-me-up, there's Intelligentsia Coffee for delicious brews and Wicker Park deli, The Goddess and Grocer for nibbles. No drama if you've got your heart set on Frontera Grill's tortas, since Rick Bayless has this terminal covered as well.
