SSP America, a division of SSP Group, announced the addition of Hunt & Fish Grill to its growing portfolio at LaGuardia Airport’s new Terminal B today.

Located in Terminal B’s Western Concourse, the Grill’s namesake is the iconic Hunt & Fish Club located near Times Square and Wall Street. The menu was inspired by the Club’s culinary program. Highlights include a Lobster Bisque accompanied by sherry cream and smoked paprika, a 12-ounce New York Strip Steak served with Garlic Confit and a Brooklyn-style Pork Chop with hot vinegar peppers. A variety of dishes appropriate for diverse dietary requirements are available.

“Our focus at SSP America has always been on bringing a ‘taste of place’ to the airports we serve,” said Paul Loupakos, Senior Vice President of Development and Airport Retention, in a January 20 press release. “We have a passion for local restaurants which requires tremendous coordination of a team that works tirelessly to bring our unique business model to life. Our special thanks go to the Hunt & Fish Club leaders who worked shoulder to shoulder with us during the development process. We’re very excited to bring another New York brand to the travelers of LGA so they can enjoy a final ‘taste of place’ before departure.”

SSP America developed the concept in partnership with the Hunt & Fish Club team including co-owner Nelson Braff and Executive Chef Chad Brown.

Currently, SSP America operates 12 restaurants at LaGuardia’s Terminal B. Two more are in development. In addition to Hunt & Fish Grill, brand highlights include the Shelly Fireman’s Brooklyn Diner, Eli’s Essentials inspired by the legendary delicatessen Eli Zabar, and Mulberry Street, a concept created in partnership with the accomplished Chef Marc Forgione.
