The lifestyle publication recently compiled a list of the best restaurants in America’s 40 biggest airports based on the eateries editors thought had the best food selection and quality.

The Peach City’s One Flew South, located in terminal E, made the cut thanks to its yummy sushi dishes and array of cocktails, including the pisco sour. 

“It was hard to leave One Flew South off our Best Airport Bars list, especially since we’d choose it as one of our favorite places to grab a cocktail in Atlanta even if it didn’t require a plane ticket to get access,” Thrillist wrote. “But the Asian spot is, at its heart, a restaurant, not a bar. So here we are!”

It’s cocktail menu is especially a standout. 

Dubbed as a “Salute to Aeromarine,” it pays homage to the Aeromarine Airways, which were flying boats from the 1920s that carried wealthy passengers from Miami to Nassau and Havana to drink legally during the Prohibition era.
