Shopping and Dining at the Airports

The Port Authority and its airline and concessions partners continue to bring innovative, exciting retailers to the New York-New Jersey airports. Numerous new choices for shopping and dining at Newark Liberty International and John F. Kennedy International make airport layovers convenient or are simply delicious.

At JFK’s Terminal 4, the Seafood Bar is open in the West Retail Hall. The menu includes a variety of seafood from shrimp cocktail to sushi, caviar, and Balik smoked salmon. Salads are available, as are wine, beer and champagne. A glamorous black and white décor with high-bar seats provides a dramatic setting.

Passengers can now visit the shops at Newark Liberty’s Terminal C on the Web. The new site, shopnewarkterminalc.com, features an interactive map, a sales and promotions page, and a store and restaurant directory. Pages dedicated to each store and restaurant have photographs, contact and location information as well as PDF menus.

Additional retailers opened this summer:

  • Forgot to pack the camera? At LaGuardia, stop by the ZoomShop, an automated, self-service machine that purveys electronics, personal care products and language-learning CDs. The shop is located on Concourse C in LaGuardia’s Central Terminal Building;

  • Bobby Van’s Grill in JFK’s Terminal 8 offers a menu of enticing hors d’oeuvres such as chocolate dipped strawberries, bruschetta with sliced steak, and an assortment of cheeses in a beautiful sit-down bar and grill restaurant;

  • Balducci’s Food Lover’s Market serves gourmet breakfasts, lunches, light dinners and amazing desserts in the food court on the departure level of Terminal 3 at JFK.
