A sustainable airport restaurant?

I just had an absolutely delicious breakfast torta for about $10 at Rick Bayless' Tortas Frontera at the Chicago O'Hare International Airport.  The food was freshly and carefully prepared by a staff that was clearly made up of chefs and those on track to be chefs.  The music was hip.  And, not only was the food delicious (I've NEVER raved about an airport eatery--it REALLY was delicious), it was obvious that a lot of care went into the selection of ways to serve it (recycled paper boxes, compostable utensils, 100% post-consumer waste napkins, etc.).  And, get this, the ingredients were (mostly?) locally sourced from named farmers! Never seen anything like this at an airport eatery.

We need more of these to help us make sustainable choices while traveling!
