When you think of flying, quality food service doesn’t exactly come to mind. But why not grab a delicious meal before takeoff? These wonderful airport restaurants will not disappoint.

New York City’s JFK airport is home to Piquillo. The restaurant has a domed, tiled ceiling, and looks like the indoors of a contemporary wine cellar, a perfect place to wait out a delay. Tapas and Spanish sandwiches call to mind the food that chef Alex Raij cooks at her two outstanding Manhattan restaurants, El Quinto Pino and Txikito. Dishes include: creamy croquetas and a flight-friendly bocadillo of serrano ham on a tomato-rubbed baguette.

Boston’s Logan International airport has Legal’s Test Kitchen. Legal’s Test Kitchen Legal Sea Foods, a Boston establishment, runs this 80-seat restaurant that tests out new dishes for the restaurant company and offers take-out salads, wok stir-fries and sandwiches as well as Legal classics like clam chowder and fish and chips.

Philadelphia is home to Chickie’s and Pete’s Sports Bar. Now, they are in the airport too. This energetic South Philly crab house now manages numerous airport outlets focusing in the original’s chowder, steak sandwiches and Crab Fries, delicious french fries seasoned with crab-boil seasoning and served with a creamy cheese dipping sauce. Yum!

D.C.-based Burger and Fries established, Five Guys, is now waiting for flyers in Washington Dulles Airport. Five Guys assembles appetizing burgers and hand-cut fries to order and even gives guests free peanuts.
