The new United Airlines Polaris Lounge at LAX offers an a la carte menu in addition to an elaborate buffet. Here’s a look at the menu.
First, note that all food and drink is complimentary in this lounge. Tipping is not expected. We’re talking about California of course, so I’m not sure it would be actually turned down if you offered one, but there is no expectation of gratuity.
Here’s the menu:
Power Green Smooth Bowl (kale, pineapple, and apple smoothie with coconut-banana granola)
Boardwalk Benedict (zucchini potato cakes, poached egg and hollandaise sauce, and your choice of smoked salmon or shredded pork)
Avocado and Burrata Tower (heirloom tomato vinaigrette, micro greens, served with crostini)
Street Taco Trio (diced nopales, pico de gallo, queso fresco, tomatillo salsa + citrus achiote-marinated carne asada, onions, cilantro + soy-seared ahu tuna, avocado crema, pickled vegetables)
Just about everything on the menu sounds good to me. When I go, I want to try the Nutella croissant, chilaquiles, avocado tower, and street taco trio. Come on, I’m fairly predictable by now.
But, I’m willing to try something for you, if there is consensus in the comments below. Is there anything you would like me to try?
I’m still hoping to get to the Polaris Lounge this weekend, though that remains to be seen. In the meantime, I’m very much looking forward to my dining experience in the lounge.
