Fresh Seasonal Fare
The food at LGA was the best compared to the SFO and LAS Centurion Lounges. The menu is designed by one of Zagat's top 30 under 30 chefs, Cedric Vogericheten.
The staff was attentive and refilled the food often. Below are the seasonal strawberry and watermelon smoothie, and brownies.
We visited the lounge in the afternoon. The hot food consisted of tomato bisque, fried chicken, green pea puree, carrots, and ginger rice. Fried chicken was boneless and topped off with a lemon zest — easily one of the best fried chicken entrees I've ever tasted.
Enjoy a cocktail at the premium bar. The cocktail menu was designed by one of the nation's top mixologists, Jim Meehan. Wines were handpicked by renowened wine authority Anthony Giglio.
Member services desk, workspaces, and computer bar
The member services desk is located right when you walk into the lounge. The staff is super friendly and is ready to assist with anything. Be aware that this lounge does not have showers.
Complimentary high-speed wifi is available to all guests. Be sure to ask for the wi-fi code at check-in.
Semi-private workspaces can be found throughout the lounge. There's a corridor with nooks and large flat-screen TVs.

Communal workspaces are available throughout the lounge.
The Centurion Lounge at LGA is a great experience for anyone looking to enjoy a meal with a view before/after a flight. Although it is smaller than some of the other Centurion Lounges, the food and service makes up for it.
Based on our other lounge experiences at SFO and LAS, the LGA lounge has the best variety and quality of food.
