I don’t know what it is about airports, but shortly after throwing all my valuables in a bin and shimmying through a metal detector my stomach starts to grumble and I suddenly realize I’m starving. For some reason a day of travel also includes ravenous hunger. Thankfully, travelers at O’Hare will have more options to fill their hollow bellies with before take off.
Who: Rosemarie S. Andolino, Commissioner, Chicago Department of Aviation, Manolis D. Alpogianis, Owner of America’s Dog and Elie W. Maalouf, President & CEO, HMS Host/Wicker Park Sushi and Seafood Bar guided by sushi chef Susumu Shibata.
What: America’s Dog, a hotdog stand providing regional hotdog and sausage preparations (i.e. Chicago Dog, Maxwell Street Polish, Milwaukee Dog, Atlanta Dog or Santa Fe Dog, and more) and Wicker Park Seafood and Sushi, a chic spot to sip some sake while trying some sushi that reflects Chicago’s cultural diversity.
Where: O’Hare International AirPort
Terminal 1, C Concourse: America’s Dog
Terminal 2: Wicker Park Seafood and Sushi Bar
When: Oh… its open now for all you holiday travelers!
Why Stop By: Because business kept you so busy you’re about to leave Chi without tasting a Chicago-style hot dog… or maybe because you’re heading to Cleveland… but you really wish you were flying to Japan!
