Airport restaurants are often a mix of wilted lettuce and sad soggy sandwiches. Thankfully Downwind is right next to the Dekalb Airport and serves all the pub classics and a large amount of wild-caught seafood. The biggest perk about coming here is that if you bring some younger humans they’ll be distracted by airplanes taking off and landing long enough to give you some alone time with the spinach artichoke dip and a beer.
