Attention Travelers: LAX Boasts First ‘Plant-Based’ Airport Eatery

Attention Travelers: LAX Boasts First ‘Plant-Based’ Airport Eatery

If you find yourself in terminal 4 of LAX, your appetite will be completely satisfied at Real Food Daily, the first entirely plant-based eatery in an airport in the world.

RFD’s LAX locale will offer healthy, plant-based fare such as salads, sandwiches, fresh fruit-and-veggie juices, and “Basic” meals, as well as grab-and-go snacks. Travelers are already ecstatic about the nutritious offerings, according to RFD founder, Ann Gentry’s Facebook page. She shared a picture of singer Jackson Browne in front of the chainlet with the caption, “Jackson Browne stopped by RFD at LAX on Day 2. He ate a Basic 3 with his own bamboo cutlery. No wonder he is so gorgeous.”

Moby tweeted about it too so we wouldn’t be surprised if it was the new place at the airport to go celebrity spotting.

This news is almost enough to plan a layover in LAX! In the words of “30 Rock”‘s, Liz Lemon, “I want to go to there.”

Congrats to Real Food Daily’s expansion and here’s to them popping up in more airports soon!

Traveling can be very tiresome and it would be a real treat to eat at there. I try to bring healthy snacks when I travel, but doesn't often work out, especially when travelling back to my home. The RFD sounds great and will look for it the next time I'm in LAX. While flying through Salt Lake City, I found a restaurant that was like finding heaven-- I thought it was plant-based, don't remember the name. They also owned the frozen yogurt place next door. Thanks for the post.

Sadly, the availability of real food is more the exception than the rule. So much so, that LAX is advertising it as an incredible thing to have. I hope others start offering real food too, not just here at LAX.
