In just over a month, on November 21, one of the best eating/spotting locations in the world will close. The Proud Bird at LAX shuts its doors that day. It sits on airport property and the airport decided to raise rent by more than 130 percent over what it pays today. They say that’s market rent, but with the restaurant closing, I can’t imagine they’ll have a new tenant anytime in the remotely near future.
I grew up going to The Proud Bird and we have our annual Cranky Concierge dinners there now. If you’ve been, share your memories here. If you haven’t, see if you can sneak in before the closing date.
