When the brand new Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse opened in Terminal 2 at LAX a little over a month ago, I brought you the news of the lounge’s partnership with LA restaurant Hinoki & the Bird. Now I’ve got the full Clubhouse menu for you. Great beers, cold-pressed juice, and miso donuts? I don’t know about…
