A Reason to Be Happy When Your Flight is Delayed

I have, on occasion, been relieved that my flight from Newark was delayed. Like the last time we flew to Caribbean and I had been so crazed in the days leading up to the trip, that I never got a pedicure. My husband grabbed breakfast with my kids and I sat at the Departure Spa with a cup of coffee and a trashy magazine and got a pedicure. I even had time for a short back rub.

Now there’s a new reason to be happy about your delay. Newark Airport welcomed Tsukiji Fishroom two weeks ago to terminal C. Tsukiji Fishroom flies in 200 to 300 pounds of fish from the famous Tsukiji market in Japan weekly!

Not in the mood for sushi? There’s a new spot for ramen noodles too: Kaedema, a collaboration with Chef Shoushin Yanaura.

Other great options at Terminal C include:

Thyme, Chef Amanda Cohen’s place, owner of Dirt Candy on the Lower East Side’s restaurant.

Bison burgers at Five-time Burger Bash winner Josh Capon’s place, Wanderlust Burger Bar.

Dumplings and scallion pancakes at Little Purse Dumpling Den.

Croque monsieur at Saison, a French brasserie.

• Made-to-order omelettes at Wabi-Sabi served with breakfast fried rice.
