Nate ‘n Al opens at LAX
A Nate ‘n Al deli has opened at LAX, LAist reports.
The company in charge of the food overhaul at LAX, HMS Host, called the more than 66-year-old restaurant “a landmark in Los Angeles and one of the best delicatessens in the world,” LAist reported.
“Nate ‘n Al epitomizes comfort food,” the HMS Host statement continued, “which is just what the LAX traveler needs before or after a flight.”
No word on whether Larry King will be trekking down to Terminal 2 for his daily (or almost daily) bowl of blueberries, which is reportedly what the veteran newsman orders when he visits Nate ‘n Al in Beverly Hills.
But at least this way, Nora Ephron can get her preferred last meal—a hot dog from Nate ‘n Al’s delicatessen, she told the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd back in 2009—without braving the traffic on Sepulveda.
