The Proud Bird is an LAX-adjacent food hall (don’t worry, you don’t actually have to enter the airport to eat here) featuring six different vendors including Bludso’s BBQ, plus stalls serving cocktails, teriyaki bowls, pizza, and more. On top of several decommissioned  fighter planes your kid can gawk at, they can also burn off some of that energy at the full outdoor play area complete with slides, tunnels, and the muffling roar of nearby airplanes.

Al-Noor is an LA classic and a far happier reason to head towards LAX.

Playa Provisions

Playa Provisions is a four-concepts-in-one eating emporium, and the kind of all-day dining option this neighborhood needed.
