So if you get to the airport a little early why not sit down, relax with a drink and enjoy a delicious meal before boarding your flight. These top restaurant picks for NYC Airport dining surely will not disappoint!

Blue Smoke on the Road:
If you want to have great food and watch a game before your flight, Blue Smoke on the Road is the right choice. Relax with a beer, a glass of wine or a cocktail. The food is a southern and soulful delight of dishes made with smoked meats, ribs, sausages and other barbecue plates. There is also a lovely view of the outside terminals from the restaurant.

Calling all beer aficionados! Biergarten offers a fantastic selection of craft beers from around the world that pair rather well with their German-style menu. Have a glass of Allagash White or Brooklyn Lager pre-flight. Why have an ordinary cheeseburger when you can order a chicken schnitzel sandwich or a cheddar bratwurst? They also have some great small plates to nosh on as well.
