My Healthy Meal strives to create nourishing, all-natural meals that don't skimp on flavor. Chefs focus on creating low-fat, low-carb meals such as furikake-crusted salmon, tandoori chicken breast, and turkey tacos. Meals are prepared fresh every day and packaged for guests to pick up at their convenience, then either eat right away or store in their freezer-box cheeks. Before ordering meals, guests can confer with an on-staff nutritionist who helps them establish goals and create menus that cater to their needs.
If you ask a child to draw the meaning of Christmas, there’s a good chance it would look something like Rocket Fizz. A step into Rocket Fizz is a step back in time—into a wonderland of old-fashioned candies and sodas that appear to be straight out of a kid’s imagination or a sugar factory’s family tree. The progeny of cofounders Rob Powells and Ryan Morgan, the shops—which have been mentioned on The Price is Right and endorsed by celebrities such as Snooki from Jersey Shore—burst with thousands of soda pops and candies.
Rob and Ryan created their own brand of pure-cane-sugar Rocket Fizz sodas, which tickle tongues in flavors such as banana nut, cherry cola, and apple jalapeño. Lester’s Fixins and Melba’s Fixins sodas—named for Ryan’s grandparents—offer sweet tastes of apple-pie soda or key-lime soda and adventurous flavors such as bacon soda and sweet-corn soda. Candy bars include classics such as Rocky Road, Bit-O-Honey, and Sky Bars, and bite-size candies include favorites such as Nerds, Milk Duds, and peanut-butter cookie-dough bites. Each shop also stocks nostalgic items, such as movie and music posters, gag gifts, and popular Jones sodas.
YoFresh Yogurt Cafe’s self-serve apparatuses dole out dollops of natural and nonfat frozen yogurt ($0.39/oz.) in more than 10 ever-transforming flavors.

Speckle icy canvases with the shop’s selection of more than 20 toppings, including fresh mangos, blackberries, and cookie dough. The sweet staff also blends and pours a number of smoothie varieties ($3.99+) for people who like flavors such as cappuccino, piña colada, and what it tastes like to get caught in the rain.
The Club at LAS keeps patrons comfortable and entertained as they wait for their next flight. Whether due to weather or the airplanes escaping their corrals, delays become a nonissue for travelers as they relax in one of their plush chairs.
At The MadHouse Coffee's two locations, baristas craft hot and cold coffees and teas and serve them up alongside made-to-order sandwiches and freshly baked pastries. Patrons can sip on a peanut-butter-infused Monkey Mocha between bites of the Island of Capri sandwich, full of creamy mozzarella, tomatoes, and oregano hugged by two slices of focaccia bread. The MadHouse Coffee also offers a selection of desserts such as tiramisu, which guests can nibble as they take in the vibrantly remixed pieces of artwork on tables, walls, and employees’ foreheads.
Poshburger Bistro, the latest venture from Michelin-starred chef Conrad Gallagher, brings visitors face-to-face with exotic wild game, albeit wild game that’s sandwiched on a bun. The gourmet eatery’s chefs craft burgers from organic, free-range, grass-fed animals—wild boar, Black Angus and Kobe beef, lamb, ostrich, and elk—as well as from fresh tuna and salmon. They then top their creations with ingredients such as seared foie gras, prune-and-armagnac aioli, and Asian coleslaw. The burgers fly out of the kitchen alongside plates stacked with sides and snacks that pay tribute to the classic burger joint, including spicy buffalo wings and seasoned fries.
Poshburger also embraces the comforting feel of the classic burger joint. Inside the simple cafeteria space, dark-blue-tiled walls surround the communal dining area—rows of polished tables and benches made from blond wood. The simple tables groan under the weight of the adventurous food and glasses filled with craft beers, 1 of more than 30 boutique wines, or the current milkshakes du jour.
Founded by ice-cream enthusiasts Donald and Susan Sutherland in 1988, Cold Stone Creamery has grown to more than 1,400 locations across North America. Each day, the shop's scoopers mix up fresh batches of ice cream and sorbet, which are served by the scoop, piled high in sundaes, and blended into shakes. After customers choose their desired flavor, the staffers toss the chilly sustenance upon a slab of frozen granite and fold in a smorgasbord of candy and nuts to achieve the ideal ice-cream-to-add-in ratio. Customers can dream up their own creations or opt for a signature masterpiece, sampling one of more than 11.5 million possible flavor combinations, which still await a brave conqueror to unlock them all. To accommodate sweets cravings at celebrations, staff members also dish out premade treats, such as ice-cream cakes and baked goods.
