At an event in Philadelphia yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden likened New York’s LaGuardia Airport to something out of a “third-world country.” The last time we checked, the smaller and most convenient of NYC’s airports had heat, air-conditioning and hot water. Sure, an upgrade worthy of Hong Kong's international terminals (which Biden fawned over) would be fantastic, but LGA already has a few highlights—primarily thanks to Delta's redesign of Terminals C and D. Here, the seven best things about LaGuardia Airport.
Victory Grill. For a martini and a steak, this is the place to go in Terminal C. Conceived by chef Andrew Carmellini of NYC’s The Dutch, Lafayette and Locanda Verde, the menu includes a Hampshire pork shop, frisée salad and shrimp cocktail.
The Minnow. Another Carmellini special, this seafood-focused spot located in Terminal D has dishes inspired by the raw bar at the Dutch along with sushi, lobster rolls and mussels.
