Chef Marcus Samuelsson is set to open two new concept stores as part of a $28 million food development inside JFK airport. The first, called Uptown Brasserie, will serve classic American foods and the second restaurant will serve a menu inspired by street food.
Samuelsson is not the only person to get in on the development with a whole array of new chains and restaurants planned, including a new French bistro and a sushi bar.
For those who love a good burger Danny Meyer will also be opening one of his famous Shake Shack burger joints.
The new food outlets are part of a $1.4 billion renovation of the airport\s Terminal 4 building.
The coronavirus crisis has hit the hospitality industry hard, forcing many restaurants to close. But others, such as former 108 chef Kristian Baumann, have taken the opportunity to open new and innovative concepts in the middle of the pandemic.
