The city of Chicago has unveiled a $26 million overhaul of O'Hare Airport's international terminal. It's the first redevelopment since Terminal 5's construction in 1993 and includes two dozen new high-end retail and dining options. It also features sleek interior design upgrades that give parts of the terminal the feel of a comfy lounge or trendy nightclub. Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the re-design reflects Chicago's ``distinct style and spirit'' and will place the city at the ``center of the global tourism conversation.'' Among the new offerings are a spa, a local gourmet deli called The Goddess & Grocer and a restaurant overseen by celebrity chef Rick Bayless. And coming soon are an Emporio Armani and a Michael Kors shop.
