​HMSHost to open new restaurants at LGA

By Rick Lundstrom

Designs for the new outlets at LGA were released this past summer

The opening of the first 11 gates located in the eastern concourse Terminal B in LaGuardia Airport will include three new restaurants featuring chefs and restaurateurs are well-known in the New York area.

HMSHost is opening Shake Shack, La Chula, and Osteria Fusco. These new dining options are part of a 10-year contract with LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the operator and developer of Terminal B.

“We listened to guest feedback, collaborated with our partners, and delivered a dining experience worthy of the greatest city in the world,” said Ed Baklor, Chief Commercial Officer of LaGuardia Gateway Partners.

Shake Shack is designed to resemble a “roadside” burger stand. It features 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle-cut fries, craft beer, wine and more.

La Chula, an authentic Mexican taqueria from New York City chef Julian Medina, offers travelers traditional and freshly prepared tacos and margaritas in a trendy atmosphere. With popular locations in East Harlem and Grand Central, and now the airport, La Chula brings accessibility to five-star Mexican fare.

Osteria Fusco, led by New York Chef Scott Conant, delivers Italian cuisine, refined and inspired by Conant’s grandmother, who lived in Italy. Travelers can now enjoy house-made pastas and soulful dishes such as Pasta al Pomodoro, Rigatoni with Nonna’s Neopolitan meat ragu.
