Ford’s Filling Station at LAX

24 Feb

Just a quick note to say that the LAX food upgrade continues apace. Terminal 5 is turning into a secret superstar, especially to those of us who mostly just travel through Terminal 1 (Southwest).

In addition to Lemonade and Morimoto Skewers, now comes Culver City stalwart, Ford’s Filling Station. The place has a full bar and an abbreviated menu, but is quite a step up from the usual Brioche Dorre or Starbucks. The menu seems to be lacking the nose to tail cooking Ford’s is known for (for obvious reasons), but the food looks pretty decent. And paying $15 for dishes instead of the usual airport $10.50 isn’t too bad if the food is good. Just don’t expect it to be a substitute for the original Ford’s.


Ford’s is not my favorite restaurant in LA by any stretch (see my upcoming post on how overrated the downtown Culver City food scene is), but you have to admire LAX’s strategy of upgrading their food with actual local places.
