New York Sports Grill
If you’re the type of person who needs to physically see your gate right after passing security, you'll be happy at New York Sports Grill. It’s located close to gates 10-13, so you can relax with a beer without having to pop back to Terminal 5’s main atrium after checking when you board. It’s also a little further removed from the chaos of people aimlessly looking for their gates and buying last-minute neck pillows, which makes it easier to find a table during peak hours. The tap list is long and full of IPAs and sours from local New York breweries, and the toasty reuben will keep you full enough to resist purchasing an overpriced snack box on the plane.
