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.
