Last november, we told you about the A-list chefs planning to open restaurants in Newark Airport’s terminal C, which Bloomberg proclaimed would be turned into a “foodie theme park” after a $120 million redesign set to be completed in 2016.
Participating chefs include Einat Admony (Taim), Wilson Tang (Nom Wah Tea Parlor), Dale Talde (Talde/Pork Slope), Alain Ducasse, and more. Talk about next-level airport dining.
Here’s a look at what the future Terminal C “foodie theme park” will look like. (Architectural renderings courtesy of Bloomberg Business and Parts and Labor Design NYC & OTG Management).
Little Purse (Dale Talde)
Top Chef‘s Dale Talde will make dumplings—from shumai to wontons—the focus of the menu.
Kaedama ramen bar (Shoushin Yanaura)
Yanaura’s Kaedama ramen bar is topped with a metal mesh embedded with LEDs that glow at night.
French Brasserie (Alain Ducasse)
The Michelin Star chef’s classic French brasserie will feature dishes like onion soup gratinée, hand-cut beef tartare prepared table-side, and traditional sandwiches like croque monsieur and jambon et beurre.
