JFK Airport’s new TWA Hotel — the revival of the airport’s long-abandoned terminal — continues to make additions that will make travelers actually look forward to passing through JFK. Last month, the hotel announced the installation of an infinity pool with views of the runaway; now, in addition to the pool, a museum, and several bars, the hotel is adding a food hall intended to offer quick and affordable dining inside the terminal’s “Departures Hall” where Trans World Airlines passengers used checked in for flights.

The hall will be filled with local NYC favorites like the Halal Guys and Empanada Mama. Other stalls will include Earl of Sandwich, Fresh&Co, and Playa Bowls. Daily menus for each food stall can be found on Fooda’s mobile app.

According to Tyler Morse, CEO of MCR/MORSE Development who developed the project, the goal of the space is to offer “essential New York City food bucket list all in one spot.”

The TWA terminal is scheduled to open on May 15, including a hotel with 512 rooms and a range of bars and fine dining options in addition to the food hall.
