New LAX restaurants almost worth the security lines

June 8, 2011 |  6:00 am

Is LAX turning into the next hot dining neighborhood? In addition to the landmark Encounter restaurant that has always been there, there's been talk of adding such well-known favorites as Campanile, Pink's Hot Dogs, Homegirl Cafe, La Brea Bakery and even a fried chicken stand from pop-up king Ludo Lefebvre.

Now comes a whole set of Farmers Market favorites at Terminal 5: Mr. Marcel, Magee's House of Nuts (wonder if they'll keep the peanut butter machine?), T&Y Bakery, Bennett's Ice Cream, Three Dog Bakery and, wonder of wonders, Loteria Grill.

The newest additions, which will need approval by Los Angeles City Council, are supposed to be open by the end of 2012.
