traveler's advisory

Take note, Logan airport travelers: Lucky's Lounge in Terminal A has food that does not suck.

I was flying on Northwest for work but encountered flight delays and was rebooked onto Delta, and so found myself in Terminal A, mildly cranky due to idiotic security screening policies, two hours early, and hungry. Saving my brown bag for later when I might not have access to food, I poked over to Lucky's, drawn by the promise of a lobster roll.

Said lobster roll has zero celery, just enough mayonnaise, and chives, all nestled in a rather nice ruffled leaf of green lettuce in a toasted hotdog roll. Perfect, if you are willing to overlook the fact that the lobster is frozen, which I most certainly am whilst dining in an airport.

And you can have it with fries or a salad, and they'll make that salad into the wedge salad for $3 extra, which means you can also have a pretty solid rendition of that classic salad, with bacon and big crumbs of blue cheese, a creamy dressing with a nice hit of celery seed, crunchy iceberg and some fresh cucumber chunks (and some sad-ass tomato slices, but you can't have it all).

I would have been happy with this meal in a regular restaurant. The rest of the menu is heavy to rich bar foods (burgers made with half sausage half beef, cheeseburger pizza, chicken wings, tuna melt), but that's fair enough: cranky travelers need happy food, and the stuff on other patrons' plates looked pretty good too. There's nice eye candy on the walls (vintage black and white photos of Sinatra, Elvis, et al). And there is a power outlet at EVERY SEAT.

You forgot to mention the cocktail menu! Whenever in Terminal A, I make sure to down a large cocktail to make the flight that much better!
