This is probably a dumb question, but nevertheless I'm wondering if there is anything decent to eat at EWR? Terminal B, I think. I seem to recall a CPK, which makes edible salads, but that could easily have been some other airport. If no, I need to schedule time to hunt and gather this afternoon.

Terminal B has a Budweiser brew Pub, which offers OK burgers and products of the company. I don't recall seeing a california pizza kitchen there, but I could be wrong.

Terminal C has a Gallagher's steakhouse in the 130s wing. Offers a decent burger as I recall

I like the Garden State Diner in Terminal C. Decent, straightforward, reasonably priced diner food. I've had good omelets and sandwiches there.

Never been able to find decent food at Terms A or C. Haven't been to B in a few years. Anyway we always bring homemade sandwiches, they're cheaper & better.

This near-useless advice also comes too late for the original poster. Ah well.

Bergen Record has a short article about new form vendors at Newark Airport's terminal C (Continental). Wine merchant Vino Volo has been joined by a Heineken Brewpub, and a Guinness tap room.

This HMS Host business sounds like it has an interesting business. It's a national company that packages local brews with national labels and operates local beer joints. I've had a few beers in their San Diego Karl Strauss location, but I didn't realize it's part of a national business.



QUOTE
Steve Novak, vice president-concept development for HMS Host in Bethesda, Md., which operates 40 branded airport pubs, said beer accounts for more than half of all adult beverage sales, outstripping wine and spirits.

HMS Host pubs range from local and regional brews such as Wasatch in Salt Lake City and Karl Strauss in San Diego, to national brands such as Sam Adams and Budweiser. The pubs generally offer four of the featured brand’s beers on tap, along with Budweiser and Bud Light and a variety of bottled beers.

“The pubs give the consumer a chance to experience the product in a living and breathing atmosphere,’’ he said.

If Davis and Butera had preferred wine, they could have walked to the opposite end of the terminal to the new Vino Volo wine-tasting room, which opened about six weeks ago.

Nice thing about Newark is that you can take the airtrain between terminals if you have the time on a layover & there's anything strikes your fancy.

Golden Krust has opened a new location at Terminal A (Southwest, JetBlue, Air Canada, US Air, Continental Express, etc) in Newark Airport, per the NYDN.

“Golden Krust is excited about its newest location opening,” said Candice Richards, director of marketing and public relations for Golden Krust. “This airport location incorporates a contemporary design that provides a bright and sunny Caribbean atmosphere created to give passengers the feel of the islands while offering the authentic taste of the islands that Golden Krust is renowned for.”

Newark Airport passengers and employees got a taste of the Caribbean in 2009 and 2010 when Golden Krust operated a temporary location in Terminal B. Now, the company’s Jamaican beef patties, jerk chicken combos, and fresh-baked pastries are back and there will be incentive offers, such as $6.50 lunch specials, and buy 2, get 1 free deals on patties.

Eater has an excellent guide to dining establishments inside Newark Airport. Of special interest is which terminal (A, B, or C), and which side of security. Nearby gate numbers are helpful, too.

It's a very detailed list, but their standouts include

Vino Volo: [Terminal C, Post-security, Gates C70-99]

Earl of Sandwich: [Terminal A, Post-security, Gates A20 - 28]

Le Grand Comptoir [Terminal C, Post-security, Gates C120-139]

Grand Central Oyster Bar [Terminal C, Post-security, Gates C70-99]

Smashburger [Terminal C, post-security, Gates C120-139]

I guess it must've been the Grand Central Oyster Bar at Newark (or do they have one at JFK as well?). Well, I would not recommend it based on one visit. G's breakfast was OK-- bacon and egg, but my bagel and smoked salmon was pretty bad. The salmon looked old, was badly sliced and made for one ugly sight. The slices of mealy, under-ripe tomatoes didn't add to a pretty picture. I didn't trust the kitchen to offer a decent replacement.
It was not a new dish, as I recognised my tooth marks. Wilfrid

I don't think this idea can work, because the good eating places are found after you go through security.

AFAIK, that wasn't the case 3 years ago, tho choices outside security have always been limited. There seem to be more upscale options now than there were.

I had a very enjoyable Smashburger in Terminal C late last August. IIRC, there was a good order of fries as well.

Are you implying that Newark disgusts you? If not, forgive me. If so, perhaps you'd like to enlighten us with your current hometown, so we might all bask in awe of your exalted status in the world.....
