I like to fly to airports that I can find a great dining experience at either on the field or within close proximity using a courtesy car from the FBO. I don't believe in the $100 hamburger per se as a good flight and a wonderful dining experience go hand in hand. I am based at ARR in the Chicago area and have been known to fly to Atlanta,Ga. just for dinner and return back home that same evening.
Some of my favorite airport/restaurants include the following: Jakes Restaurant/Capitol Arpt/Brookfield,Wi,Ocean Club/Columbus Intnl/Columbus,Oh,Annie Gunns/Spirit of St. Louis/St. Louis,Mo.,Candlelight/Whiteside Cty/Sterling,IL,L'etoille/Madison,Wiand a host of others.
PLEASE list some of your favorite fine dining places to fly to in the US.
