Airports have stepped up their food game by adding eateries that are either local favorites or celebrity chef concepts, and in some cases both.

Airports have stepped up their food game by adding eateries that are either local favorites or celebrity chef concepts, and in some cases both.

In Chicago at O’Hare International Airport, the city’s master of Mexican cuisine, Rick Bayless, has opened the doors of Tortas Frontera. There, passengers awaiting their boarding calls can enjoy foods fresh from the farm and hot off the plancha.

Food Network regular Cat Cora has also chosen a terminal – specifically number 2 at San Francisco International - for one of her latest endeavors. Cat Cora’s Kitchen offers grilled cheddar and feta on sourdough that could certainly help take the aggravation out of delays.

Prefer to eat like the locals? The airport in Austin, Texas has a rule that only area eateries can set up shop within its walls. Travelers seem to be fine with that, as last year The Salt Lick alone sold over 55 tons of brisket.

Industry experts say it’s a sign that airport administrators are realizing that people love good food and are willing to pay extra for it.

In fact, one airport restaurant owner reported that after upscaling his wine list and raising his prices he did better business.
