The American Express Centurion Lounges are well known for their curated cuisine and intimate approach to airport lounge luxury. One of my favorite new lounges to open has a brand new Breakfast and Lunch/Dinner /menu. The JFK Centurion Lounge’s new menu is absolutely 10X better than the original. See what has changed in this basic review!
Breakfast Selection at the JFK Amex Centurion Lounge
I did not have the chance to visit for breakfast but the staff did let me know that it has been well received. The old menu had a breakfast sandwich and fruit & yogurt parfait. As pictured above, the new menu includes French Toast, Potato Frittata, and even an immunity booster shot. I like new changes here and look forward to trying these in the near future!

Lunch/Dinner Selection at the JFK Centurion Lounge
Now don’t get me wrong, I certainly enjoyed the previous menu. There was a mushroom sandwich that I could not get enough of. However, the new menu is completely better in every way. Not only are there more options, I think the new options are much more delicious.

My favorite new options from the JFK Centurion Lunch & Dinner menu are the Chicken Milanese which is served with a lemon and a spicy mustard. Next, the Potato Salad and Gnocchi Amatriciana pack a ton of flavor. Again, there is a hint of lemon in the Yukon potatoes which jumped out at me. Lisa really enjoyed the Carrot Soup and Creme Caramel Flan for dessert.
I’m definitely happy with the upgrade to the JFK Centurion Lounge and am looking forward to enjoying these new options going forward. Now that travel is picking back up, there’s no doubt that I will be transiting through my sort-of home base (second to BUF) more often. Of course, a trip to the JFK Centurion Lounge is not complete without a visit to the secret speakeasy (Shhh).
