If you find yourself in terminal 4 of LAX, your appetite will be completely satisfied at Real Food Daily, the first entirely plant-based eatery in an airport in the world.

RFD’s LAX locale will offer healthy, plant-based fare such as salads, sandwiches, fresh fruit-and-veggie juices, and “Basic” meals, as well as grab-and-go snacks. Travelers are already ecstatic about the nutritious offerings, according to RFD founder, Ann Gentry’s Facebook page. She shared a picture of singer, Jackson Browne in front of the chainlet with the caption, “Jackson Browne stopped by RFD at LAX on Day 2. He ate a Basic 3 with his own bamboo cutlery. No wonder he is so gorgeous.”

Moby tweeted about it too so we wouldn’t be surprised if it was the new place at the airport to go celebrity spotting.

Congrats to Real Food Daily’s expansion and here’s to them popping up in more airports soon!
