Terminal 5, O'Hare International Airport, Chicago, Illinois
The proposed layout for the food court corrected a number of issues with the existing layout, which has the food court located on the 'land side'. The food court is a 'marche' styled layout, capable of transforming its look and menu in a very short period of time to handle the various waves of region specific flight arrivals. A single BOH supports the large mix of offerings.
A wide variety of menu choices provides a marked contrast the very limited options perviously available in the old food court.
