New Orleans Airport Set To Become New Foodie Destination

New Orleans Airport

New Orleans is getting a new food destination, but it’s not quite where you would expect.

Louis Armstrong Airport is getting a massive facelift. Expected to be completed in 2019, the new terminal will completely replace the existing terminal currently on Airline Drive. Travelers will expect to see sleek interiors, a brand new parking garage, and of course, the food. What would a New Orleans renovation be without sensational food?

Among the national brands expected to pop up in the new terminal, including Chick Fil’A and the newly announced Shake Shack, you will also see plenty of local eateries with new locations as well.

  • Leah’s Kitchen
  • Midway Pizza
  • Chick-Fil-A
  • Ye Olde College Inn
  • PJ’s Coffee
  • Heritage Bar
  • Angelo Brocato’s
  • Bar Sazerac
  • MoPho
  • City Greens
  • Folse Market
  • Emeril’s

New Orleans is a major food destination. Therefore it only makes sense that  visitors will be able to taste we have to offer as soon as they board or disembark. If you could choose what flavors of New Orleans to add to the new terminal, what would you include that’s not already on the list?
