I always enjoy traveling out West at the end of the summer, specifically to Montana. Most airlines that fly out west go through Salt Lake City, Utah — which our Delta flight did — but some airlines have direct flights to whatever Western destinations you might be traveling to in the future. Refer to our Top 10 Airline Travel Tips story which is especially helpful for these long flights. Then follow Tim and my five-day trip to Montana which included hiking, fishing, river rafting, horseback riding, discovering nature and checking out the local western town.
Our flight out of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s Concourse E gave us the opportunity to try One Flew South, the first fine-dining restaurant in Atlanta’s airport. Executive Chef Duane Nutter, Corporate Chef Todd Richards and General Manager and Mixologist Jerry Slater partnered to bring a gourmet food experience to Atlanta travelers. The menu delivers premium ingredients from regional farmers and purveyors that includes entrees, sandwiches, and sushi, as well as take-away items, if you’re short of time.
The restaurant’s white marble exterior walls, alcohol bottled-lined window and shiny silver sign lets you know that it’s not like any other restaurant in the airport. The restaurant’s interior sushi bar background features a large forest photograph which makes you feel like you’re not confined to the airport. The restaurant’s sleek, sophisticated layout and atmosphere includes regular tables, cocktail rounds, sushi bar and bar dining.
It’s wonderful to enjoy a more upscale restaurant in Hartsfield that puts the pitiful food court and other airport food options to shame. But fresh, gourmet cuisine comes with a price: our lunch for two which included nonalcoholic beverages and the restaurant’s 18% gratuity was $50.
