The famous steakhouse, The Palm, has a location now at NYC's JFK Airport. Located in Terminal 4's 3rd floor, it's the best eating option pre-security, for sure. I've never been to their other famed locations, but I well remember eating about them in Washingtonian's steakhouse guide. Looking back, I would have done well to remember the magazine's notes on The Palm's spinach.
I ate at the restaurant both leaving the US and coming back. JFK's doing a lot of remodeling -- I've been told that they are "always" under construction -- and because of that, a lot of the eating options out front and my "secret" phone charging stations seem to have disappeared. Thus, I ended up eating at The Palm twice in a week and needed to do it on a budget.
Read my list below to find out the hits, misses and why the service really, really needs to improve. JFK is a gateway for most of the world's international flights, so if you travel frequently, you'll appreciate the insight.
