Legal Sea Foods - Philadelphia Airport
Flying from Philly to Pittsburgh last week for work I found myself with a few hours to kill in the Philadelphia airport. I decided to treat myself to lunch at Legal Sea Foods because I knew they had a gluten free menu. It's pretty rare to find gluten free food in an airport, so this was a nice treat.
What wasn't a nice treat was seeing the calories listed for each item. I know they legally have to do this, but wow is it a downer. I was only going to get a salad because I didn't want to pay $30 for lunch in an airport, but having to decide between the calories of my meal and the price of my meal was rather unfortunate. I ended up getting a cesar salad with grilled shrimp. It was very good and even had gluten free croutons on it. It also added an extra 1,000+ calories to my day. (Salads, by definition, should not be a thousand calories!) Like when I ate at Legal Sea Foods in Boston, I was served warm gluten free roles and the manager brought over my meal and informed me that they took my food allergy very seriously. A nice touch I think.
Then I was off to Pittsburgh. I made sure to utilize the hotel gym when I got there so I could eat dinner without exploding.
