Delta has food on the mind as the airline prepares for the opening of their freshly transformed terminal (Terminal 4) at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. In celebration of the opening, the company launched a pop-up lunch spot, T4X, in New York City this week, replete with cuisine inspired by its international destinations (from Paris to Athens) and a few items created by its famed consulting chef for International BusinessElite flights, Michelle Bernstein.
Each day, a selection of four tasty entrees such as Jambon Beurre, Mexican Torta, and El Pernil, are available. Perhaps best of all, the pop-up's lunch-perfect salads and sandwiches are only $4 in honor of the impending relaunch of Terminal 4 and are served in adorable cardboard suitcases on a conveyor belt reminiscent of one at an airport's baggage claim.
The sensational food at T4X hints at what is to come in the new Delta terminal: more incredible food! The terminal will feature cuisine from star chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Danny Meyer. The dining experience at the terminal will include Samuelsson's Uptown Brasserie and his casual Street Food as well as Meyer's first-ever airport Shake Shack and his barbecue-spot Blue Smoke. Other new additions to the terminal include Cake Tin, filled with delectable cupcakes and treats, the 1930s-style Central Diner, La Brea Bakery, Le Grand Comptoir, Asobu and more.
T4X (located at 376 West Broadway, New York City) is open to the public Tuesday-Sunday through May 22, and visitors can purchase lunch from Noon-2pm. Delta will open its renewed Terminal 4 on May 24.
