Updated: 2014-07-10 / (discoverlosangeles.com)

The centerpiece is the New Tom Bradley International Terminal (New TBIT), a state-of-the-art, $1.7-billion facility that solidifies LA’s status as a vital international gateway. New TBIT features luxury shopping and a sophisticated dining collection that showcases the best of LA’s global flavors. From brand new eateries in New TBIT, to recent additions in terminals throughout the airport, read on for some of the best dining options for LAX travelers.
