9 Airport Restaurants: Local Eats Before Liftoff

Slide 1 of 9
Plane Food (Heathrow Airport, London)
Award-winning celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay opened Plane Food in Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5, and it has not only elevated airport dining but it has also given jet-setters in transit a chance to sample British fare without leaving the massive terminal.

The "Plane Fast" menu makes it convenient to dine quickly without sacrificing quality. The menu is organized by the amount of time it will take to be served theres a 25-minute option that includes two courses and a 35-minute option that includes three courses. Theres even an option for those with no time to sit down called the Plane Picnic, a lunchbox with a three-course meal inside that can be eaten on the plane.

Plane Food embodies traditional British cuisine, with menu options such as dry-aged British beef, stout-braised shoulder of beef, English pea and broad bean risotto, toffee pudding, and a cheese plates.
