The next stop is Concourse E, Concourse E as in ECHO.
Keep riding, because the stop after that is Concourse F, Concourse F as in ECCO.
The reproduction of Ecco, Midtown’s Mediterranean restaurant and wine bar, in the Maynard Jackson International Terminal gives travelers another higher-end option when they find themselves with time to kill. Cheeses, cured meats and goat cheese fritters with a glass of great wine to knock back: ain’t nothing wrong with that. If you want a full-meal entree, I can attest to this grilled pork chop with green farro, fava beans and orange.
Generally, though, I’m of two minds about eating in the airport — those two minds being the ones that belong to my id and superego. The id goes for a Popeye’s chicken biscuit or a clamshell filled to bursting with totally ratchet Chinese food. The superego favors salads with strips of wan chicken breast and pouches of fat-free dressing. I’m not sure I do myself any favors with either meal.
Anyhow, here is the link to my story on airport dining over yonder on myajc.com.
