Breakfast at the Airport: The Good and The Bad

J. Kenji López-Alt 38 comments

What is it about airports that breeds bad food? Is is a lack of resources? A captive audience? And the more important questions, if Rick Bayless can serve great airport food at O'Hare, why can't everyone else? Tell us; what's the best and worst airport breakfast you've ever had? More

Why Coffee and Air Travel Don't Mix

Drinks Liz Clayton 9 comments

If there's ever a time coffee is needed, it's while taking to the skies early in the morn, or trying to revive a weary self in time to meet your destination with open arms. Why, then, must air travelers be forced to suffer in the true purgatories of awful coffee that are our airplanes and airports? More

What Are Your Favorite Purchases in the Duty Free Shop?

Drinks Erin Zimmer 38 comments

You have survived the airport security checkpoint (phew) and deserve what awaits you around the corner: the Duty-Free Shop. Even if you don't intend to purchase a single thing, it's only right to pop your nose in and take a gander at the are-you-kidding-me-cheap prices for Swedish vodka or the special-edition Book of Kells release from Jameson.

Airport Pizza: AeroNuova at JFK International's Terminal 5

Slice Adam Kuban 8 comments

But you know what? At $12.50 for a Margherita pie that's made to order (and not "made to order" from a frozen puck in a microwave-convection oven), it's much better than it has a right to be. More

A Sandwich a Day: Lobster Roll from Logan Airport in Boston

A Sandwich a Day dbcurrie 17 comments

If you have a lengthy layover at the Boston airport, conveniently around dinnertime, consider stopping at Boston Beer Works (especially if it's ridiculously close to your gate, as it was for me). The lobster roll ($17) is served on a New England style hot dog bun. Inside, there are large, sweet, meaty chunks of lobster meat. There was a mayo-based dressing, but only a pretty light touch with a slightly lemony flavor. More

Have You Ever Had Good Airport Pizza?

Slice Erin Jackson 10 comments

Trekking across the country can be as tough on your patience as it is on your stomach, and with most airlines offering pretty lackluster in-flight dining options, grabbing a bite during a layover is usually a smarter option. When hunger struck on a layover at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, I opted for a Margherita pizza from Real Food Company. More

A Hamburger Today Nick Solares 17 comments

Custom Burger by Pat La Frieda in LaGuardia airport's food court offers a number of burgers in various patty configurations, and prices start at under $5 for a single with cheese. That's not only a remarkable price for an airport—it's a remarkable price for New York City as a whole. More

LaGuardia: Joey's, U.S. Airways Terminal C

Slice Adam Kuban 4 comments

[Photographs: Adam Kuban] The big news in LaGuardia-based pizza, of course, is that Dom DeMarco Jr. has opened a Di Fara–inspired pizzeria, Tagliare, in the Delta Air Lines terminal. I am not in the Delta terminal, where the pizza options are so promising. Instead, I took one for the team and sampled Joey's Pizza in the U.S. Airways Terminal.... More

Not Surprising: Vegans Have It Rough In Airports

Allison Hemler 32 comments

Pictured: Airplane food, not vegan. Photograph by Robyn Lee. From a previous eight month stint of living a vegan lifestyle, I can tell you that traveling as a vegan can be a daunting task. Though I'm a believer that being forced to eat on a plane or in an airport food court is not the most enjoyable no matter what your food preferences, vegans have it rough in the land of fried food and mystery ingredients in the terminal and in flight. Most airlines don't provide cuisine in coach—Jet Blue will give you (vegan but oily and gross) Terra Blues, Virgin America might deliver a box of cheese and crackers if there are leftovers from first class and the...
