LAX To Carry Veg Food

Vegan restaurant Real Food Daily is slated to open in LAX next year.

The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is adding new dining options for travelers, including food from popular vegan eatery Real Food Daily. Contracts for new restaurants were awarded early this week; Real Food Daily is expected to open its LAX location in 2012. Several other restaurants and vendors, such as Starbucks, Campanile, and LA Gourmet Street Truck are also included in the plan. Officials say that the new offerings are meant to better reflect the diversity of California cuisine. “We have a cast of new, talented, and proven restaurants that will put ‘LA’ back into LAX,” Gina Marie Lindsey, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports, said in a press release.
