    And the hottest new airport dining destination in the country is… NEWARK?!?!? Yep. You heard that right. Thanks to a $120 million project between United and OTG Management, Terminal C at EWR is going to get a whole lot nicer. Over 55 new dining outlets will be available to travelers and once they all open, Newark will offer the largest collection of chef-driven restaurants anywhere in America. Four chefs with Michelin stars have signed on and the just-announced new restaurants are beyond impressive. From the press release: Saison, a classic French bistro by Alain Ducasse; Vesper Tavern, a gastropub-style tavern by Paul Liebrandt; Riviera offering French country fare by Alex Guarnaschelli; Mario Carbone lending his take on classic Italian with an Italian steakhouse; and Josh Capon’s SRF Bar, featuring a surf bar and sushi oasis with a fresh catch every day are among the inspired dining offerings. Food halls are being reinvented as a global bazaar of exciting culinary choices, with chefs hand- pulling fresh noodles at Kaedama, Shoushin Yanaura’s ramen bar; authentic Mexican street fare at Alex Stupak’s Taqa Taqueria; Nonna’s Meatball Cafe by Amanda Freitag; and hand-crafted treats at Jacques Torres’ Melange Bakery. To make ordering even easier, OTG is installing 6,000 iPads to service flyers at 60 gates with on-screen ordering and flight information for all! Are you kidding me? Now I want to go to Newark just to eat. Which new EWR eatery are you most excited about? (Link to the press release here.)
