Not sure where to eat when you have a few extra hours before your flight at LAX, Hartsfield-Jackson, O’hare or Logan? These restaurants are worth a visit, even if they’re in a different terminal.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – Atlanta, Georgia

Located in the Concourse E of the busiest airport in the world, One Flew South is the type of restaurant you’d expect to find in Midtown Atlanta, with the chef taking a new approach to international cuisine. It’s surprising that it took so long for the airport to get a fine dining restaurant, but with menu items like soy glazed grouper and thyme-roasted pork belly, sushi and an exceptional wine and cocktail menu, a meal here will have you wanting to extend your time in Atlanta.

It’s hard to visit Boston without stopping into Legal Sea Foods, a chain of casual-dining eateries that are everywhere you turn in Massachusetts. If you have some time at Logan Airport while you wait for a connecting flight, go here to get a taste of a Boston staple. There are five locations within Logan alone, so it’s simple to get your seafood fix.
