Bon Appétit: American Express Partners With Culinary Tastemakers For New Centurion Lounge℠ Locations

American Express is bringing more premium dining experiences to the airport, adding new executive chefs to The Centurion Lounge culinary team. Chef Christopher Kostow and Chef Cedric Vongerichten will lend their signature styles and culinary inspiration to the menus at The Centurion Lounges in San Francisco Airport (SFO) and New York LaGuardia International Airport (LGA), respectively, both of which are slated to open later this year.

“Chef Kostow and Chef Vongerichten are culinary tastemakers, and we’re thrilled to have them curate the food experience at The Centurion Lounge,” said Lisa Durocher, Senior Vice President, Consumer Charge Cards & Benefits at American Express. “The Centurion Lounge is a haven at the airport for our Card Members, and we’re excited to bring this experience to travelers moving through New York and San Francisco.”

Currently open in McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW), The Centurion Lounge destinations within airports help American Express Card Members relax, recharge and reboot. The Centurion Lounge is also expected to open in Miami International Airport (MIA).

Entry to The Centurion Lounge is complimentary for Platinum Card ® and Centurion ® Card Members. Other American Express Credit and Charge Card Members may purchase a One-Day Pass at The Lounge for $50.

LGA and SFO Lounges to Feature Locally Inspired, Seasonal Menus

The Chef at Michelin Three Starred The Restaurant at Meadowood, Kostow will lend his signature style to The Centurion Lounge at SFO. Named by the James Beard Foundation as Best Chef: West, Kostow will be featuring the great producers and purveyors of the Napa Valley and surrounding region to incorporate a thoughtful, dynamic approach to a series of seasonal menus.

Vongerichten, Executive Chef at Perry St in New York City, was named by Zagat as one of the top 30 up and coming chefs under 30 in 2011. Son of world-renowned chef Jean Georges Vongerichten, he is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and worked through the ranks at several Jean Georges Restaurants.
