The Proud Bird Is a High-Flying Food Hall With Aviation Views

The Proud Bird is back and brighter than ever, featuring an airy new setup complete with floating planes overhead, a casual food lineup, and lots of room to watch the comings and goings of the airport nearby.

<snip>

Bellwether chef Ted Hopson and business partner Ann-Marie Verdi consulted on the menu, which is offered out to the public via a series of six small stations. There’s one for rotating Asian food, another for Italian, a third for standard American fare, and so on — plus a stop at Bludso’s BBQ, a stand all its own, serving barbecue now that the Compton location has closed up shop. Diners pay a la carte for their meals during lunch and dinner, but weekend brunch means all-you-can-eat fare at $30 a head.

But it does have its own LAX "G" shuttle stop at Aviation & 111th street so going to/from LAX is relatively easy.

Access to/from hotels is also possible via local buses. Big Blue Bus #3, Culver City #6, and Beach Cities #109 serves most hotels near Century Blvd and stops at Proud Bird (Aviation & 111th Street).

Edit: it appears that the outbound (west side) "G" shuttle stop and bus stop at 111th street has been eliminated (relocated?) due to Crenshaw line construction. But regardless... it is a 0.5 mile walk from Aviation station (final stop of "G" shuttle, BBB #3, Culver City #6) with paved sidewalk!

I go here after work sometimes. My office is 5 minutes away. I'll stop by next week for their happy hour which includes $6 white wine pours until 7pm. Anybody down for a final visit?

Looking for a late spring 2017 opening now I think that is overly optomistic

Anyone know if it's open yet?

I always thought that it would be cool if they had a shuttle from LAX and the major nearby hotels...
