Cleveland airport has Michael Symon. JFK has Sammy Hagar. Chicago O’hare has Bayless. Los Angeles Airport doesn’t have much at all, especially at the busy Tom Bradley International Terminal. It finally took the brute retail strength of an Australia mall giant to finally bring Top Chefs into LAX. Is there a better way to alleviate the Chinese tourists’ wallets ladened with crisp Benjamins than a tin of Petrossian’s caviar? Team Villaraigosa is laughing all the way to the bank’s night deposits. The complete list of new restaurants to open at the $80 million development project follows, but don’t come hungry to that flight this Christmas holiday. The first new restaurant will not open until Spring 2013. [PATCH] [Westfield]
