Earlier this week Delta opened its first Delta One Lounge at New York’s John. F Kennedy airport for Delta One passengers, and select 360 members as well. Additional locations planned later this year include Los Angeles and Boston.

The new lounge spans 39,000 square feet including an outdoor terrace as well for guests. Delta One passengers will find this new lounge directly after security between Concourses A and B in Terminal 4.

Per Delta,

The Delta One Lounge atmosphere is true to the magic of Manhattan – step inside and you’ll forget you’re in an airport.

As New York City’s hottest new destination, the Lounge features nods to other noted locations throughout the Big Apple, with thoughtfully curated surprises for New Yorkers and design enthusiasts alike.

The premium bar, serving elevated takes on classic cocktails, features a standout Art Deco-inspired lighting fixture; the Bar Lounge ceiling and fluted glass nod to the gold leaf ceiling and chandeliers of Radio City Music Hall.

In terms of dining options, Delta shares the following:

Foodies, take note: The Lounge features a 140-seat Brasserie restaurant delivering a three-course meal service. Restaurant Associates and Union Square Events (a Danny Meyer concept) have collaborated to elevate the culinary experience in the Delta One Lounge, with dishes such as Hamachi crudo, steak tartare and lasagna Bolognese.
