Since I am an elite flyer, I usually frequent airline pubs, er, clubs, for free libations. However, I make an exception in Atlanta. I don’t even mind being delayed in Atlanta because of this place. My favorite airport bar/pub/restaurant hands-down is One Flew South, even if I only want a drink and not food. They have by far the best cocktail and wine list of any airport bar, and if you do wish to eat, they also have an amazing menu of made-to-order appetizers and meals, as well as a sushi bar. What is even more surprising is that although it is described as an “upscale dining experience,” you are served very quickly. My last few visits have been about 45 minutes, from arrival to departure. If you inquire about how long it will take to receive your food and drink, the servers can answer with a preparation time for each item on the menu. If you do decide to eat, my personal favorites are the Breast of Duck, Chicken Noodle Soup, Concourse E Burger 1/2 Pound Kobe, Pork Belly Sliders, and Pulled Duck Sandwich. Since I am a wine chick, I always go for a selection from their extensive wine list.
