Where to grab your pre-flight bites

Here are some notable airport food on the fly

  • Monk's Grill, YVR (Vancouver, BC)

    Try Monk’s habanero fish taco. It’s prepared with fresh fish, scallops and shrimps in an avocado sour cream and Mexican hot sauce.

  • Encounter Restaurant, LAX (Los Angeles, CA)

    Enter the realm of The Jetsons in this soaring 1960s space with its 360-degree views of the busy runways, kids’ Space Cadet menu and kitschy lava lamps.

  • Café Versailles, MIA (Miami, FL)

    A great spot for Cuban street food. The classic sandwich of ham, roast pork and Swiss on a crusty baguette goes well with a strong Cubano coffee.

  • Tortas Frontera, ORD (Chicago, IL)

    The south-of-the-border sandwich from Mexican food master Rick Bayless has it all—beef, pork, chorizo and guacamole wrapped up in bread from his downtown Chicago eatery.

  • Napa Farms Market, SFO (San Francisco, CA)

    In the new Terminal 2, find chef Tyler Florence’s juicy, organic rotisserie chicken.
