Exploring Newark Airport Terminal C
Updated on December 14, 2017
When we reimagined Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport, we wanted to create a place for travelers that offered food and experiences that were both inspiring and delicious. Here's a look at what's happening around Terminal C.
Phil grabs a bite with Catalina and John at Josh Capon's Wanderlust Burger Bar where the burger and beer options are endless. The fried pickles are a delicious and the bar stretches past several gates, making it a convenient stop. While you're there try the Truffle Burger, and if ordering the Bison Burger, we recommend getting the Tater Tot Poutine on the side — it's a crowd favorite. Complete your meal with a featured stout, ale, Belgium lager and more from an impressive beer list. You'll be raising a glass to your adventure in no time.
Check out the video below brought to you by Buzzfeed's Tasty to see how the Tater Tot Poutine is made. And if you're tempted to try it home, read on for the recipe.
Tater Tot Poutine Recipe from Terminal C's Wanderlust
Saison by Chef Alain Ducasse
If it looks like we put a French Bistro in the middle of an airport, it's because we did. Relax before your flight with a meal at Saison. It's French food at it's finest, offering seafood, steaks, cheese plates and more. The steak tartare is prepared tableside with mustard, watercress, egg yolk and shallots; the crostini's are baked fresh daily from Balthazar in the heart of SoHo and don't forget about the croque monsieur, served with a creamy béchamel sauce, ham and a thick layer of melted gruyere cheese. If you're looking for a quick bite, try the onion soup gratinee or the seafood tower.

At Saison, seafood arrives daily and is never frozen. Ask your server where the Oysters are from that day to complete your meal with the perfect libation — a Sauvignon Blanc pairs perfectly with east coast oysters.
CGBG, an open-air beer garden at Newark's Terminal C
The birthplace of NYC's Rock, Folk and Punk music has found a new home in Terminal C. This open-air beer garden is a restaurant, bar and record shop, offering a classic American menu with burgers, hot dogs, prime rib, salads and wings. Love a good cocktail? Order yourself a "She's So Modern," made with Jim Beam, Amaretto and Orgeat. Don't be fooled by the name, the "Dirty Ashtray" is our favorite, a can of Tecate "dressed up" with a little salt, a little pepper and a lime wedge. If you're traveling on a Thursday, swing by for a bite and a little live music before your flight.

The next time you fly out of Newark Liberty International Airport, get there early to explore the many food options in Terminal C.
In the midst of mobilizing our cargo operations, our teams at New York/Newark (EWR) and Jacksonville (JAX) stepped in to assist Roche Diagnostics with transporting a vital component for an instrument being used for COVID-19 testing.
The component was stuck at EWR en route to the Mayo Clinic in Florida after another airline's flights were cancelled. A Roche employee contacted us asking for help and, within a few hours, our teams had the piece loaded onto a Jacksonville-bound aircraft, with arrangements in place to deliver it to the Mayo Clinic.
The item we shipped will allow the Mayo Clinic in Florida to process hundreds of COVID-19 tests per day. Mayo Clinic Laboratories has been on the front lines of increasing testing capacity to expedite caring for patients at this critical time and working to ease the burden being felt at test processing laboratories in a growing number of areas.
We are going above and beyond to find creative ways to transport fresh food and produce, as well as basic essentials from the U.S. mainland to military and their families in Guam/Micronesia. On Saturday, March 28, we operated an exclusive cargo-only B777-300 charter to transport nearly 100,000 pounds of food essentials to Guam to support our troops.
In addition, we move mail year-round all over the world. In response to COVID-19, and in support of the military members and their families overseas, we implemented a charter network, transporting military mail to Frankfurt, which is then transported all over Europe and the Middle East. Since March 20, we have flown 30,000+ pounds of military mail every day between Chicago O'Hare (ORD) and Frankfurt (FRA). On the return flight from Frankfurt to Chicago, we have carried an average of 35,000 pounds of mail to help families stay connected.
"Connecting products and mail to people around the world is the United Cargo mission," said United Cargo President Jan Krems. "Keeping our military families connected with the goods they need, and keeping them connected with loved ones to feel a sense of home, is of critical importance. As a company that has long supported our military families and veterans, our teams are proud to mobilize to lend a hand."
On average, we ship more than 1 billion pounds of cargo every year on behalf of domestic and international customers. For more information, visit unitedcargo.com.
To our customers,
I hope this note finds you and your loved ones healthy and well.
It is safe to say these past weeks have been among some of the most tumultuous and emotional that any of us can remember in our lifetimes. The impact of the coronavirus outbreak has been felt by individuals and families, companies and communities, across the United States and around the world.
The response to this crisis has been extraordinary; as much for what it has required from our society as for what it has revealed of us as a people.
Far from causing division and discord, this crisis and the social distancing it has required, has allowed us to witness something profound and moving about ourselves: our fond and deeply felt wish to be connected with one another.
The role of connector is one we're privileged to play in the moments that matter most in your life – weddings and graduations, birthdays and business trips, events large and small – and it's that responsibility that motivates us most to get back to our regular service, as soon as possible.
That is why it is so important our government acted on a comprehensive relief act to ensure our airline – and our industry – are ready and able to serve you again when this crisis abates.
I want to relay to you, in as deeply personal a way I can, the heartfelt appreciation of my 100,000 United team members and their families for this vital public assistance to keep America and United flying for you.
This support will save jobs in our business and many others. And it allows us time to make decisions about the future of our airline to ensure that we can offer you the service you deserve and have come to expect as our customers.
While consumer demand has fallen, we have seen the need for our service and capabilities shifted. And, we've adapted to help meet those needs.
Right now, aircraft flying the United livery and insignia, flown by our aviation professionals, have been repurposed to deliver vital medical supplies and goods to some of the places that need it most. We're also using several of our idle widebody aircraft to use as dedicated charter cargo flights, at least 40 times per week, to transfer freight to and from U.S. locations as well as to key international business locations. At the same time, we are working in concert with the U.S. State Department to bring stranded Americans who are trying to return home back to their loved ones.
While much remains uncertain right now, one thing is for sure: this crisis will pass. Our nation and communities will recover and United will return to service you, our customers. When that happens, we want you to fly United with even greater pride because of the actions we took on behalf of our customers, our employees and everyone we serve.
Stay safe and be well,
Together, we are facing an unprecedented challenge. United Together, we rise to meet that challenge.
