It may seem like an oxymoron, but gourmet airport food is easier to find these days.
Instead of filling up on fast food while you’re waiting for your flight, you can get the local flavor at a regional restaurant in a number of airports around the country.
A growing number of airports across the country are striving to bring their diners some regional flavor.
On the West Coast, Perry’s at San Francisco International Airport brings a familiar gourmet touch to the Bay Area crowd.
The San Francisco icon features comfort foods like pasta, sandwiches and steaks at its airport location.
At Dallas/Fort Forth International, airport visitors get a taste of the Tex-Mex style with the new Reata Grill.
The upscale Western cuisine such as hand-rolled tamales and cowboy breakfast sandwiches sets the restaurant apart from other airport options.
Up in the Pacific Northwest, the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport offers Vintage Washington, a wine bar that pairs regional wines with tasty dishes from the Northwest, featuring fresh fish and produce.
