LAX is getting a facelift in the way of new shops and restaurants in select terminals this year. Barbie and Hot Wheels are getting a home in Terminal 5, called the Mattel experience. Good job to my friends in El Segundo for landing that project! Already open in terminal 7 is Kitson, whose trendy storefronts are also on Robertson and in the new Santa Monica Place Mall.
Terminal 5 will also get a Ford’s Filling Station, the Culver City pub owned by Harrison Ford’s son…and fresh and refreshing food & bev from Lemonade. Real Food Daily, a popular LA vegan spot will open in terminal 4. Cole’s, the legendary downtown French dip sandwich shop with a hidden speakeasy, will also open at LAX by the end of the year. Who started the French dip anyway, Cole’s or Philippe’s?
