Ecco, the Midtown mainstay of new Italian, has opened up an homage to itself in Terminal E of Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. The restaurant, which is built on a balcony, is a remarkable miniature version of the Midtown restaurant, starting with the sign and ending at the back porch seating. The service was very gracious.
My pre-flight meal was the roasted chicken. It was cooked to perfection and the sauce was there not for moisture---the chicken didn't need any---but was a remarkable flavor complement. I chased the peas around the plate they were so good. That meal made five hours in coach bearable.
