Delta adding chef inspired outlets and fresh food options to JFK T2
Delta is working with OTG on the project. In addition to the enhancements at LaGuardia, Delta's JFK dining enhancements follow similar upgrades to Concourse G at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. Temporary versions of the concepts will begin rolling out today, with the full program implemented by the summer 2014.
"After hearing so much positive feedback from our customers about the food, technology and retail options that we have implemented at LaGuardia, we decided to bring the program to JFK Terminal 2 so even more of our customers can enjoy the benefits," said Gail Grimmett, Delta's senior vice president – New York.
The new program at Terminal 2 will include seven food and beverage concepts, fresh markets, coffee shops, concierge services and the integration of Apple iPads in the new restaurants to make it easy and convenient for travelers to order food and drinks, shop, monitor their flight information and stay connected. New York culinary talent will be developing concepts for Terminal 2, include Andrew Carmellini of Lafayette and the Dutch, Ceasare Casella of Salumeria Rosi, Laurent Tourondel of Brasserie Ruhlmann and Arlington Club, and Robby Cook of Morimoto.
The terminal's transformation also includes new retail additions, with NYC-focused products and high-end tech and travel gear.
"JFK T2 gets an immediate upgrade today with these new chef-driven concepts," said Rick Blatstein, OTG CEO. "The ideas and passion our chefs have brought to the table are just remarkable. This program brings the same wonderful service; delicious food and state-of-the-art technology New York travelers have become accustomed to at Delta's LaGuardia hub. We are thrilled to be a part of the continued investment in New York's airports."
