Five Spots for Every Foodie Flying Out of Palm Beach International Airport

Every traveler knows the way it goes with flight layovers. Anthony Bourdain was even smart enough to create a show around them. Why? If you have a layover, you admit food defeat, and are most likely willing to go the remainder of your day without sitting down to a satisfying meal, or at least one tasty enough to get you through another plane ride without a bag of blue chips. Airport food and terminal restaurants? Eh, no thank you. Any self-respecting foodie would rather starve.

But what if you have a little time to spare? Maybe your flight's been delayed or you've just picked up a starving out-of-town guest. Would you consider a rendezvous with some of the city's nearby establishments instead of the airport food mall? Well, if you're in West Palm Beach at the Palm Beach International Airport, you should. There just happen to be a few good finds just miles from the runway.
