OTG unveils vegetarian restaurant in Newark Airport Terminal C

Restaurant operator OTG has opened its newest concept in Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport in New York, USA.

Thyme, an all-vegetarian restaurant from chef Amanda Cohen, will be equipped with iPads at every table where travelers can view the day’s menu as well as flight information and entertainment options. Customers may also purchase magazines, gifts and other sundries and have them delivered to their table as they dine.

Dishes include braised shitake mushroom, grilled romanesco steak featuring cashew and creamed kale, purple yam fried “rice” with kimchi, grilled orange carrot, pan-roasted brussels sprouts, and sunchoke ratatouille.

Thyme’s beverage program draws on fresh and organic ingredients, showcasing a variety of herbs, spices and market-fresh produce. One unique selection is the strawberry turmeric Buck, a distant cousin of the dark and stormy and Moscow mule that features fresh turmeric root, freshly muddled strawberries, lime juice, St Croix white rum and a splash of club soda.

“I am thrilled to partner with OTG and United Airlines to bring the vegetarian recipes I love so much to a wide range of travelers at United Airlines’ Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport,” said Cohen. “This is an exciting, unique opportunity to expand vegetable-focused cuisine to a wide range of international travelers.”

As well as her participation in Thyme, Cohen is the chef and owner of Dirt Candy, an award-winning vegetarian restaurant on New York City’s Lower East Side. It was one of the first vegetable-focused restaurants in the city and became the first vegetarian restaurant in 17 years to receive two stars from The New York Times. It was also recognized by the Michelin Guide five years in a row and won awards from Gourmet Magazine and the Village Voice.

Rick Blatstein, CEO of OTG, said, “We’re so excited to work with Amanda Cohen, adding the integral new vegetable forward movement to Terminal C’s diverse selection. We are committed to bringing a variety of inspired dining options to the airport. Thyme is a great new addition for United customers, offering delicious vegetarian and vegan choices.”
