Has anyone ever eaten at this WDI-designed restaurant at LAX? Any reviews? I'd love to go there sometime, but never think about LAX when trying to decide where to eat. (I have taken the elevator up to the restaurant, though, which is a trip in itself.)

03-08-2007 11:55 PM #3Unstable arches close Encounter restaurant at LAX
By Jennifer Oldham, Los Angeles Times
March 08, 2007
Officials shuttered the Encounter restaurant in the iconic Theme Building at Los Angeles International Airport today after workers discovered the space-age arches that surround the eatery are unstable.
Inspectors uncovered the problem after a 1,000-pound piece of white stucco fell off the underside of one of the arches and smashed into the eatery's roof. No one was injured.
The arches, which don't provide structural support for the glass-encased restaurant, haven't been renovated since they were erected in the late 1950s.
Officials said the restaurant closure, expected to last at least six months, is a psychological blow to LAX, which is eagerly awaiting intense worldwide media attention when the massive Airbus A380 arrives March 19 on its first U.S. test flight.
The Theme Building — along with the Hollywood sign — has long been considered one of Los Angeles' signature landmarks.

I went up for lunch one day. It was pretty disappointing to me. If there was anything special about the place, I pretty much missed it. The elevator was mildly diverting I suppose and the building is cool. When I was there the place badly needed a long refurb, it was in bad shape. The food was overpriced. Good, but definitely not what I would call worth the price. Just my 89 cents.Jaleel White does not approve.

I still haven't eaten here. Well, based on your review, G2D, and now the mandated closure, I guess I'll be waiting a while longer......
