In New York, there’s been plenty of excitement about the improvement of JFK’s eating options in light of news that the airport will add 16 restaurants to Terminal 4 as part of a $28 million development project. It’s just the latest in an ongoing movement to revolutionize the pre- and post-flight dining experience.
But until those new spots—including a Shake Shack!—come to fruition, where else should you head for a bite when you’re on the road? One man who knows a thing or two about travel is Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern, who is in and out of airports pretty much every week.
