In the NY Times Travel section on Sunday, an article by Matt Gross about airport dining chills and thrills pointed out three restaurant options when passing through LAX.
Using words and phrases like “purgatorial gloom,” “disheartening,” “lacked any recognizable flavor,” “$71!” and “the waiter kept calling me ‘chief’ and ‘boss'” — well, you get the idea.
While Gross mentioned two restaurants inside the terminal that sound disappointing even by airport standards, one of them, Encounter, might be worth checking out for a drink just to take in its Jetsons-esque kitsch.
The third? It involves taking a parking shuttle to get to an In-N-Out Burger joint on Sepulveda.
