The World’s 35 Best Airport Restaurants 2015 Slideshow

Airports can be places of stress, heartache, and panic. There's that nagging worry that you might miss a flight; the sadness of saying goodbye to a loved one, whether it's a relative going back home or a friend going off to war; and the anxiety of setting foot on a plane at all in this era of terrorist attacks.

But airports are also places of anticipation, love, hope, and beauty. They're the place where a college student flys off to study abroad and expand his or her horizons; a new mother brings her child to meet his or her grandparents for the first time; a young couple in love sneaks off for a romantic weekend; and, during the holidays especially, families and loved ones reunite.  

A number of the places we hailed in our 2013 piece on the subject are here again, and some have dropped off the list. Airport restaurants tend to open and close relatively quickly, whether due to business issues or terminal redesign, so we had to rework our list several times to accommodate closings — like that of one of our favorites, Kogi Truck at Los Angeles International Airport.  

Just like passengers, restaurants arrive as well as depart. New arrivals this year include Sushi Kyotatsu in Narita International Airport. Read on to learn where they placed.
