Being hungry only adds to the stress of air travel. If you find yourself at Boston’s Logan International Airport, T.F. Green in Rhode Island or the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in New Hampshire, these are some great choices to ward off hunger between flights.
Boston Logan International Airport
While you may be anxious to spend as little time at the airport as possible, Logan has some tantalizing dining choices that might encourage you to stay awhile.
Boston-based Legal Sea Foods has multiple options in terminals A, B and C. The Legal Test Kitchen, in Terminal A, also has a to-go window to get food on the run. Seafood dishes come in a wide array of iterations, from the traditional New England lobster roll to a crabcake breakfast sandwich and a lobster omelet.
Celebrity chef Todd English has two eateries in Terminal B at Logan. Bonfire offers South American and European-style steaks as well as lighter dishes like tapas, tacos and even a Kobe beef hot dog. For quick bites and a cocktail, head to Ozone.
Stephanie’s, at the Terminal B connector, is the sibling to two other locations in Boston. The menu offers a wide range of dishes, including healthier options like salads and sandwiches as well as top-end entrees like salmon with potatoes and Brussels sprouts. There is also an extensive breakfast menu.
If you’re seeing someone off for an international trip, consider a send-off dinner in Terminal E at Dine Boston. Guest chefs from local restaurants rotate with each season, creating specialties on a rotating menu.
If you’re a wine lover, you’ll enjoy exploring some new options at the laid-back Vino Volo. Located in terminals A and E, Vino Volo also offers lunch, dinner and small plates in case you’re looking for some pairing choices.
Boston Red Sox fans will likely want to stop at Jerry Remy’s, which has two locations in Terminal C, founded by the much-loved commentator. Remy’s Bar & Grill is a full-service restaurant located prior to security, while Remy’s Express is located past security and paired with Sam Adams Brewhouse. The Express location gets its hot food from the main restaurant, so some food orders here take longer – be sure to tell them if you’re tight on time.
Finally, if you are in in Terminal B, Berkshire Farms Market offers Bay State goodies that make great snacks or souvenirs for loved ones. It carries farm-fresh salads, sandwiches and artisan cheese platters to go, as well as take-home products like maple syrup, granola and specialty chocolates.
T.F. Green Airport
While this Warwick, R.I., airport is smaller than other Boston-area airports, it has numerous food choices. Outside security, visit the Federal Tavern, a full-service restaurant with a bar, local seafood and bistro-type dishes. Ticketed passengers have many more dining choices. In the food court area, you’ll find fast-food options, plus traditional pub fare and a wide variety of beer from the Shipyard Brew Port.
In the South Concourse, check out Wolfgang Puck Express for fast but fresh, soups, salads, sandwiches and gourmet brick oven pizzas. In the North Concourse, don’t miss the Providence Oyster Bar with a lengthy list of seafood and bistro options, ranging from lobster rolls to sushi. It also has a full liquor selection and a raw bar, with $1 oysters during “Appy Hour” daily except Saturdays.
Finally, plan a stop at Only in Rhode Island, in the South Concourse. The shop features local food, wine and spirits and other items made in Rhode Island, including Del’s lemonade mix, Black Pearl clam chowder, coffee syrup and much more.
Manchester-Boston Regional Airport
This regional airport in Manchester, N.H., has a handful of dining options. Beyond the basics such as Dunkin’ Donuts and Quiznos, check out Shipyard Pub, located on the second floor just before security for beer, wine and light pub food. Past security, there are two Sam Adams Pub locations, between gates 4 and 5 as well as 8 and 9, serving beer from the Boston Beer Company, as well as pub food.
