La Vie

JFK International Airport
Terminal 5, near Gate 23
New York, NY, 11430, United States

A little piece of France is located in JFK International Airport's sleek Terminal 5, which in 2009 became the home of JetBlue Airways. With its white tile walls brightened by yellow stripes, curved-back bistro chairs around a wooden bar, and lights suspended from a metal ceiling, Brasserie La Vie offers French cuisine in a bistro-inspired setting. Waiting for your flight to board? Pop in for sole meunière, brioche French toast, or other dishes developed by chefs Riad Nasr and Lee Hanson, who are known from the restaurants Balthazar and Pastis in New York City.

Insider Tip:

Fans of airport architecture take note: Terminal 5 is connected to the wing-shaped building Eero Saarinen designed to serve as TWA's flight center back in 1962.
