As we embark on our journey to Belgium this evening, we will be passing through JFK Airport’s Terminal 3, and more than likely dining at Bar Brace there. OTG Management, which recently revamped Delta’s Terminal C in LaGuardia Airport, is also the creator of Bar Brace. A cursory glance at the cafe’s menu shows a nice selection of paninis, some of which appear to be dairy free, and they also have Prosecco – drinking a glass of Prosecco is always a great way to start any vacation!
If I like what I order at Bar Brace, I may buy some additional sandwiches or antipasto to take on the plane. While I have ordered a dairy free vegetarian meal for my Delta flight to Brussels, I do not have high hopes based on previous experiences with their special meals (more than once my dairy free meal on Delta has included a butter pad and a packaged chunk of cheese).
Between what I buy at Bar Brace, and what I bring with me from home, hopefully I should be well-fed and happy all the way to Belgium. I’ve got a Giovanni Volpi Pinot Grigio salami, a wedge of Daiya Jack cheese, Nature’s Path granola bars, Newman’s Own orange chocolate chip cookies, packs of Justin’s Nut Butters and a Liddabit Sweet’s Lime in the Coconut candy bar. With any amount of luck, these snacks should last me well past our flight and well into our trip – depending, of course, on how much I am willing to share with my travel companions!
