Luckyfish Makes Splash At LAX

Innovative Dining Group unveils sushi, noodles, and craft cocktails at its second Los Angeles International Airport concept

As part of the $1.7 billion renovation of the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Innovative Dining Group (IDG) is proud to announce that Luckyfish, in collaboration with prominent airport food, beverage, and retail operator Star Concessions, is now open just in time for holiday travel. The international terminal’s highly anticipated new dining deck features 17 local brands, including IDG, to represent Los Angeles’ best and most recognized names in hospitality. The Star Concessions-operated restaurant offers world travelers an in-terminal taste of globally-inspired Japanese cuisine paying homage to IDG’s flagship Sushi Roku, the pioneer of sexy, innovative sushi in Los Angeles. Menu offerings include classic sushi and sashimi, specialty sushi rolls, donburi bowls, ramen and udon noodles, cold and hot appetizer items, sake by the glass, and several signature cocktails.

“We’re excited that Luckyfish will help introduce international travelers to the vibrant Los Angeles restaurant scene as part of the new dining deck,” says IDG partner Lee Maen. “We opened our first airport concept, B Grill by BOA Steakhouse, at LAX in February 2013, and we’re thrilled to continue our company’s expansion with a second presence at one of the busiest airports in the world.”

The menu at Luckyfish, which will be available daily for lunch and dinner, features favorites from Sushi Roku, including the Spicy Tuna Hanabi on crispy rice, Baked Crab Handroll, Tuna Tataki with garlic chips and mizore ponzu, Hakata Ramen with Cha-Shu pork, and the Salary Man cocktail with Dewar’s 12 Reserve Scotch, Daiginjo Sake, sour, and raspberry-cilantro mash.
