As you know, I don’t usually review chain restaurants. Even those as nice as P.F. Chang’s. You also might have noticed that I review a lot of bars on the two coasts. Traveling back and forth I pass through Atlanta’s airport quite often. Very Often!
Finding a place to eat and grab a Martini while transferring in an airport is rough. Historically airport food has been mediocre, at best. Thankfully times change and the options today are much better. Atlanta Airport is certainly right there with “One Flew South” and others.
But I’m looking for a Martini, or two, between my flights and my choice is P.F. Chang’s. Which is located in the center of concourse A, upstairs.
There are several reasons. First, the Martinis are good. Not super, not great, but well chilled, abundant, and reasonably priced. Second, I can sit at the bar and look out over the airport and watch the planes roll slowly by. Well part of the airport anyway, ATL is pretty huge.
Third, the staff knows that people are in transit and they get your order to you quickly; food and drink. Fouth, there is a power outlet between every other seat at the bar. Perfect for charging your phone/iPad/Nexus or whatever. Finally, the people there are really very friendly.
