It's getting to be that time when we look back on the year in review and 2014 was a very big year of travel for me. Between working remotely in Silicon Valley while still officially living in NYC, moving from NYC to SF, and other miscellaneous leisure travel, I spent a lot of time in airports. I know that airports get a bad rap when it comes to dining options and you know what, most of the time the food really does suck. But, every now and then I've been able to come across some truly excellent dishes. Beyond that, I've even managed to find a number of dishes served in airports that blew me away – the overacheivers – the kinds of things I would get even if I wasn't stuck eating in an airport. Without further ado, read on below to see the best of the best to eat before you fly in the sky.
*Editor's Note: I'm sad to report that this restaurant is no longer open. What's the craziest meal you've ever had in New York? I know, there's many types of crazy meals, whether it involves something outside your comfort zone like organ meat or a perhaps it's a meal served in pure darkness. But, I'm talking about a different kind of crazy. The kind that makes you stop at ask what kind of clinically insane person thought up the menu. The kind that makes you actually utter 'what the fuck' out loud. Well, this is it. This is some of the most out-there food I've found in NYC and honestly, I don't know anywhere else in the US quite like it either. Even the name of the shop foreshadows the wackiness to come. Welcome to Los Perros Locos. If you haven't already guessed, they served over-the-top hot dog varieties.
