Chef Amanda Cohen Discusses Her Newest Restaurant in Newark Airport

Chef Amanda Cohen Discusses Her Newest Restaurant in Newark Airport

Amanda Cohen opened Thyme, a vegetarian restaurant inside Newark Airport, at the end of 2016

Cohen is best-known for her vegetable-centric Dirt Candy on the Lower East Side.

Chef Amanda Cohen — the “veggie queen,” and chef and owner of Dirt Candy in New York City’s Lower East Side — just opened up a brand-new venture inside Newark Liberty International Airport. Thyme is a vegetarian eatery (of course) and is part of a movement to bring talented chefs like Alex Guarnaschelli and Dale Talde to Newark, New Jersey, to transform traditionally boring airport food.

“There will be lots of salads, sandwiches, and main courses based around vegetables,” Cohen told The Daily Meal. “Everyone, not just vegetarians, will be happy eating there. When you have a meal at an airport, you don’t necessarily wont something heavy. This food is luxurious and light but filling.”

Expect dishes like (Cohen’s favorite) mushroom tacos made with a variety of mushrooms and Mexican toppings with bold flavors, as well as Purple Yam Fried “Rice” with kimchi and sunchoke ratatouille. There is also an extensive cocktail menu.

Thyme is also retrofitted with iPads, allowing customers to pull up the menu, order food, and even order magazines that can be delivered to their table while they wait for a flight.

“We don’t want to create usual airport restaurants,” said Eric Brinker, vice president of experience at OTG Management, the company behind Newark Airport’s culinary reinvention. “A lot of people use the airport use the excuse of not being able to have fresh food or full menus. We want to operate great restaurants that happen to be in airports.”


Momofuku Las Vegas, Biscuit Theaters, the Tipping Hoax

Many readers come to Eater to escape the world of politics, not to get our take on the political environment through the lens of food. I want to and will respect that. maybe another day. Today I will just very briefly omg oh so quickly use this space to highlight a wonderful heartfelt essay by Allison Robicelli, a Baltimore baker by way of Brooklyn who believes both she and her husband might not be alive today were it not for the Affordable Care Act. She argues that Obamacare is (was?) a lifeline for vulnerable communities in the restaurant industry. Also see: this Twitter thread by Pete Wells.

Opening of the Week: Momofuku Las Vegas

Who’s behind this thing? Food world supernova David Chang.

What is it? A $7 million casino restaurant. Somewhat like his DC venture, this Momo serves a “greatest hits” of Chang dishes, including Noodle Bar’s pork buns, Fuku’s chicken sandwiches, Ssam Bar’s rotisserie duck, and desserts from neighboring Milk Bar.

Where is it? The second floor of the Cosmopolitan, the casino for the hipper Vegas set, known for restaurants like Beauty & Essex, China Poblano, and Eggslut.

When did it open? Tuesday night.

Why did Chang expand to Vegas? After all these years of failed deals and fervid rumors, Chang finally submitted to the siren song of those Vegas dollars. It seems like the right moment for Chang, as he recently took on serious investment and is looking to massively grow his delivery-only restaurant start-up Ando. It’s his third real restaurant opening (I’m not counting the Fukus) in two years. Here’s all the necessary Eater Vegas coverage.
