The Proud Bird, Los Angeles, CA

The Proud Bird Restaurant Review

: The Proud Bird, located just beyond the end of one of LAX’s runways, has transformed into a “Food Bazaar” destination while maintaining its status as a veritable aerospace museum. A “Boarding Pass” allows diners to peruse a number of kitchens, where they can choose from dishes like a red curry noodle soup bowl, a Hawaiian burger, and a ranch and bacon pizza. The Mile High Club Bar and Lounge is the spot to enjoy viewing the planes coming in for a landing outside the window along with a local beer, wine on tap or a cocktail such as the Frequent Flyer Old Fashioned. Check out a replica of a P-40 Flying Tiger and explore wide-ranging aviation memorabilia.
