Reduce airport stress by treating yourself to some culinary delights!
There are many ways that you can get rid of anxiety at the airport, such as doing yoga and meditation exercises, but sometimes all you need to get away from all that hustle and bustle is a delicious meal paired with a nice cocktail or glass of wine. If you’re ever passing through the following airports, make sure you wind down with a little food and drink at the following restaurants:
The Perfectionists’ Cafe in London Heathrow
In a 2013 blog post, Parking4Less revealed that travel expectations of passengers were rising with celebrity chefs opening restaurants in London airports. Although Heathrow already had Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food at Terminal 5, the addition of Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant at Terminal 2 was an opportunity to provide a menu reflecting British eccentricity, something that could be enjoyed by travelers from all over the world. After savoring Blumenthal’s twist on the classics, end your meal with a scoop of liquid nitrogen-frozen ice cream.
Bubbles Seafood & Wine Bar in Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
Spoil yourself with amazing seafood and more than 50 kinds of bubbly at one of the top airport restaurants of the world. The use of blue and aqua lighting and the aquarium help their customers relax from those long internationally bound flights. Though the range of delicious seafood and champagne almost sound like this bar is a place for only the most sophisticated of people, you’ll find comfort in the fact that they cater to all kinds of travelers and are set up for the “tired clientele,” according to Wandertooth blogger Katie Matthews.
One Flew South in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta
Named the third best airport restaurant in GQ, One Flew South in Terminal E goes “southernational” with dishes inspired by travels and created with local ingredients. As the first high-end dining option in Hartsfield-Jackson, this restaurant offers a new perspective on Japanese cuisine with its fresh sushi and delicious selection of prepared meals you can take on board with you. Their cocktail list is full of original recipes that pay homage to Aeromarine Airways, which allowed their passengers to drink legally during the Prohibition era.
