Westfield and HMShost preview a taste of Los Angeles at the new Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX

By Ryan White

Global restaurateur HMSHost, in partnership with Westfield, was joined recently by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa, airport officials, business leaders, a host of celebrity chefs and media from around the world to preview the inside of the New Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which will soon delight passengers from around the world when construction is completed later this year.

HMSHost will introduce seven of Los Angeles’ most celebrated local dining venues into the New TBIT with distinctly LA favorites and global flavors by Border Grill, ink.sack, Larder at Tavern, Umami Burger, Chaya, 800 Degrees and Vanilla Bake Shop—part of a dining collection by Westfield that features 17 homegrown LA concepts.

“It is hard to imagine one place where you can find so much extraordinary culinary talent as travelers to LA will find at the New Tom Bradley International Terminal,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Joe Waller. “These restaurants are the creation of LA’s most innovative and respected chefs and restaurateurs. We could not be prouder about partnering with them to create a truly exceptional culinary program that is worthy of this beautiful new LA landmark.”

Featuring a sprawling 150,000-square-foot Great Hall, 360-degree views, inviting storefronts and sustainable elements, the dining and retail design by Westfield provides travelers with unique areas to explore as they journey to their destination.

“Westfield is pleased to bring our global resources and experience in creating iconic shopping destinations to transform LAX, starting right here in the New Tom Bradley International Terminal—our global gateway,” said Peter S. Lowy, Co-Chief Executive Officer of the Westfield Group. “We have leveraged Westfield’s award-winning design capabilities with the best local restaurateurs to completely transform the airport experience into the LAX travelers have dreamed of, and the LAX they deserve.”

New concepts to be introduced at TBIT include Border Grill, ink.sak, Larder at Tavern, Umami Burger, Chaya, 800 Degrees, Vanilla Bake Shop, Starbucks and Starbucks Evenings.
