Phoenix Sky Harbor International
Matt’s Big Breakfast (Terminal 4, Gates B1-B14)
We’ve said it before, but this is one of our favorite breakfast spots in the country, period. So yes, it definitely needs to be your first stop when you inevitably retire to Arizona.
The Country Cat (North Lobby)
PDX’s food carts are cool and all, but you had your choice of the city’s 700+ before you hit the airport, so the move here is the newly opened Country Cat, where you can grab chef Adam Sappington’s whole hog and his family recipe for pimento cheese (that’s the potted “Judy” on the menu).
42nd St. Oyster Bar (Terminal 2)
There are very few places where we’d recommend ordering crab cakes, oysters Rockefeller, or shrimp cocktail at an airport, but, at 42nd St. Oyster Bar, you should really just get all three.
