Fresh on the heels of yesterday’s updated dining announcement regarding Terminal 6, the Westfield folks working with LAX have unveiled the new options for Terminal 2. And who should happen to be flying through at the same time, snapping photos along the way? Toddrickallenthe Westside blogger with a penchant for digging up paperwork on the comings and goings out that way.

While most of the new facilities are still under construction, Toddrickallen does manage to snap a shot of the BUILT Custom Burgers, which is currently flippin’ patties and servin’ customers. Most of the other brands slated for Terminal 2 fall roughly in line with the fast casual nature of BUILT — that is to say, there’s no Wolfgang Puck or Fabio Viviani onboard — but the updated options are still very welcome.

Slapfish is getting in on the seafood game inside the terminal, while Chinese take-out Pick Up Stix and chug-a-lug drink spot Barney’s Beanery occupy space further on. Downtown’s The Pie Hole makes an appearance as well, while a SeaLegs Wine Bar makes for a nicer alternative to the usual airport drinking options.

For a full list of inbound restaurant and bar names, head here. Most of the facilities should be up and running by late summer or early fall at the latest, which is good news for domestic travelers who for years were stuck with lots of less-than-stellar options.
