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.
Good news for hungry travelers heading to or through Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, as a new sandwich shop is due to open with something other than the usual airport fare.
The new place will be called Banh Shop, and it’s the first location of the Vietnamese sandwich concept being tested out from the company behind other fast food eateries like Taco Bell and KFC. The focus here will be banh mi, as well as variations on the sandwich.

On Sunday, I was sitting in Terminal 4 at LAX, having a coffee at Campanile during a layover. I was seated in one of the last bar stools, right by the glass display case where sandwiches and salads are sold to go. I was enjoying this seat for the sake of people watching, but for the most part I was minding my own business.
Then, someone came up and bought a salad, and I almost fell off my bar stool. I couldn’t believe what the charge had been for the chicken Caesar salad, the one in the clear plastic take-away container. I also couldn’t believe the customer had gone through with the purchase after he heard the price. Ready for this? Including tax, $19 and change!

If you’re headed off to the airport anytime soon there’s probably a chance you’ll need something to eat at some point, so here's a heads-up for the newest openings and coming soon situations.
For those who have summer vacation plans in upstate New York, Syracuse airport officials are hard at work getting one of those Johnny Rockets spots—famous for burgers, fries, and nostalgia—ready before the end of the year. A new Dunkin’ Donuts and Market Express have already opened up shop, and there are also plans to feature some local brews and beverages over at Middle Ages Alehouse.
Starbucks, Coffee Bean, yawn... we're tired of the same old options around every corner, too, and so next time you've got a stopover at Miami International and need a good cup of joe, try a cup of the local specialty.
Called cafe con leche (coffee with milk), this Cuban creation is very similar to a latte by definition in that it is coffee mixed with scalded whole milk at a 1:1 ratio. The main difference is that while a latte typically has foam on top, cafe con leche does not.

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.
It seems that each and every week we hear about new restaurants hitting the airport dining scene, and this week is no exception. At this point you probably know that Sbarro and Starbucks are out in favor of some high end concourse cuisine, and that’s exactly what they’re getting over at Reagan National Airport’s Terminal A—the good stuff.
Fans of Top Chef and The Chew will want to head to the airport a little bit earlier than usual, as they’ll need time to check out one of the latest ventures from Carla Hall. It’ll be a little bit of time before things start serving up terminal treats, as it seems like the middle of 2015 is the target opening date.
The healthiest airport in the whole wide world will soon be found here at home in the nifty fifty. Well at least that’s the plan if the folks down in Dallas get their way, as they are eager to show that the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is the best option for hungry travelers.
In the past the place has done well when examined by the group known as the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, as they’ve scored in the top five for good-for-you options when on the go. However, the airport is now going all in with salads, greens, and other healthy habits.
You guys, we have a sad bit of news to share. The Encounter restaurant in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles International Airport has closed its doors, with no indication that it'll ever again welcome visitors for overpriced eats.
We previously shared our tips for making a long LAX layover a little more interesting by popping out of the terminal and heading up to this restaurant. Now that it's closed, there's no longer much reason to leave the secure side of the airport for a breath of Los Angeles air.

There's a secret waiting across from gate A20 at Phoenix Sky Harbor, and it might just be the cheapest airport beer in the entire United States. Opened just two months ago, Four Peaks Brewery will pour you a pint of any of its craft-brew drafts for $4.50!
This is not a mistake, a two-for-one special promotion or a discount because we smile pretty -- the receipt above reflects the every day price of two beers at Four Peaks Brewery in Sky Harbor. Seeing as we've paid not much less than that for a Coors Light at airports in the past (cough, JFK, cough), we were quite pleased as you can imagine (in all honesty, we were so pumped when we saw the tab for the first beer that we did the respectable thing and ordered another).

If you’re already on your way to visit the family for Thanksgiving we understand if you forgot to bring a pie or some dessert. Unfortunately, your Great Aunt Mildred won’t understand, so you might as well pick something up at the airport. We can’t guarantee that you’ll find the world’s best pumpkin pie, but at least there’s a few options at the airport.
For those connecting through–or heading to—Minneapolis-St. Paul there’s a solid option within Terminal 1, as French Meadow Bakery Café calls Concourse F home in its location near Gate 3. They’ve got cookies, pastries, and other organic bakery goodies, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they had something special just for the Thanksgiving. If you’re only looking for yourself it appears that they’re cooking up a warm seasonal fruit crisp, so go for that if you’re looking to sneak in an early dessert before Thursday.
