Travel & Tourism Industry release:
Centerplate, the leading hospitality partner to hundreds of North America’s premier venues, worked closely with English and his team to create an experience that is worthy of the distinguished New York food scene. This includes a new lunchbox offering, which will be rolled out in the months ahead.
“Having an enhanced menu at Figs only adds to the traveler experience, and makes it easier for people to enjoy a good, locally sourced meal during their time here,” said Centerplate Executive Vice President Sal Ferrulo.
Todd English added, “Traveling as much as I do, I understand how small things can make a big difference. It’s why our new menu and plans for a new lunchbox were created – to make travel at LaGuardia a great experience. Working alongside Centerplate and LaGuardia Gateway Partners is a privilege and I’m excited to see how well the new menu is received.”
“With our focus on exceptional guest experience, we are thrilled that Figs has debuted their new menu,” said Ed Baklor, Chief Commercial Officer of LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the new operator and redeveloper of LaGuardia Central Terminal B.
