World’s Most Popular Airport Restaurants

Condé Nast Traveler, a magazine published by Condé Nast, a division of Advance Publications, has reported on some new data from Foursquare, a social networking website for mobile devices.

1x1.trans Worlds Most Popular Airport RestaurantsMillions of Foursquare users have rated airport restaurants, and topping the list is One Flew South, at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, where users gush about the “best airport food.”

Condé Nast Traveler readily admits Foursquare users can’t claim to be a scientific and comprehensive survey of the flying public’s taste, but lists the results anyway.

While Dema at the Westin Detroit Airport did not make the list, FriendsEAT co-founders Blanca Valbuena and Antonio Evans dined there a few years back. The first thing Blanca noticed was the great wine list.

“I ordered mushroom ravioli in a cream sauce and opted for additional shrimp ($28 – and no extra charge for the shrimp). Antonio opted for the Cajun chicken in sherry cream ($25). Both dishes were delicious.”

As for the popularity of the Burger King in Beijing, one user wonders, “Is it really this good, or have I been in China for too long?”
