Best Bites in America’s Busiest Airports

If you’re flying this holiday season, don’t feel like you have to grab an unhealthy and unappetizing meal at the airport.  Food & Wine magazine recently released its Ultimate Airport Dining Survival Guide, a list of great places to eat in some of America’s busiest airports.

airplaneIf your travels take you through Miami International Airport, Food & Wine recommends La Carreta, the airport location of the well-known Cuban chain.  You’ll be able to enjoy a cafecito and medianoche any time of day in Terminal D, post-security.

In Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Food & Wine recommends Paschal’s Restaurant for classic southern cuisine (Concourse A food court, Concourse C food court and Atrium Main Terminal), and the sushi restaurant One Flew South, Atlanta’s first upscale airport restaurant (Terminal E, near Gate G6).

Traveling through New York City?  LaGuardia Airport offers limited food options after you pass through security.  Food & Wine recommends you eat pre-security at Figs, Todd English’s NY outpost of his Boston pizzeria.  Figs is located in the food court at the Central Terminal Building.

John F. Kennedy International Airport has many more food options, especially if you’re flying JetBlue.  Of the nine full-service restaurants in Terminal 5, Food & Wine recommends Aeronuova, an Italian restaurant created by New York City chef Mark Ladner.  Non-JetBlue travelers can check out Bonfire, Todd English’s Mexican-style steakhouse (Terminal 2).  For a pre-flight glass of wine head to Vino Volo, a wine bar that also serves small plates (Terminal 8, Gate B7).

Food & Wine magazine also has dining recommendations for airports in Phoenix, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, Newark, Charlotte, Portland, Philadelphia, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Seattle and Washington, D.C.  Click here to see the full article.
