Belgian Beer Café
Pre-security; B2 Rotunda; Dine-in
This is a must-stop for the beer snobs out there. Travelers and their loved ones can all sit and chill at since this spot since it’s blessedly located before security clearance. Sip a Duvel, Leffe Blonde, or La Chouffe, which all beat the usual Bud and Miller Light offerings at most airport bars. The food is pretty decent too. Belgian fries and cheese platters are popular, but most stop by for the brews.
Sora Japanese Cuisine & Sushi Bar
Post-security; B1 Rotunda; Dine-in
Airport soba options are a rare find, but Sora has plenty of steaming hot bowls of salty deliciousness on offer. The menu is pretty thick here: Choose from maki, udon, teriyaki, tempura, salads, and other Japanese staples. Yes, an order of edamame costs $8 and some rolls rival excessive Manhattan prices, but where else are you going to find spicy shrimp tempura at EWR?
Post-security; B3 Rotunda; Dine-in
Bask in adulting vibes at this classy wine bar where the vino menu is long, and the food caters to high-brow palates. No apple pie, here. Instead, how about a $8 apple crostata? Macaroni and cheese? Ha. No. Instead, order a $12 serving of truffle penne and cheese. Vino Volo also pours $15 glasses of pinot noir from Germany, a $14 sauvignon blanc from New Zealand, and plenty of other sips from basic locales like Italy.
