As I sit here on a long layover at LAX - thanks to my Sexy Mexican Travel Agent - I find myself at the usual airport spot, which is any bar with a bloody mary.  However, this turned out to be not just any bar - or just any bloody mary.

You are hearing it here first - well maybe not - but I like to think that I am breaking the news. Airport food is experiencing a renaissance of sort.  And, you, my thirsty traveler are the beneficiary.

Many cities are recruiting popular local establishments to their airports. What a brilliant move. The days of crappy airport food may be over.

In the San Jose airport, you can get great food at Original Joe's airport edition - called San Jose Joe's. In Seattle, there is an Ivar's Fish Bar. Here at LAX, there is a Sea Legs Wine Bar.  Sea Legs has a classic marble topped bar with a few tables scattered around.  They have a pretty good wine selection and offer electrical outlets right at their bar - perfect for a blogger.  And, Sinatra is on the playlist. Heaven.

Of course - I start every vacation with a bloody mary and theirs did not disappoint.  Good and spicy with olives, celery and a perfect strip of bacon.

Proscuitto Bruschetta

Next, I ordered the Proscuitto Bruschetta on the recommendation of my awesome bartender, Jacob. Three chargrilled baguettes topped with salty prosciutto, zesty bruschetta, melted mozzarella and drizzled with basil and paprika oils.  Not bad for breakfast.

This is an excellent place to languish in a long layover.  Great food, good booze, the best music, and terrific bartender.  It was a good day.

eat. love. live well.
