We had a three hour layover at the Jet Blue terminal at JFK airport on Christmas day. We were tired and hungry and didn't want to eat in the food court nor the Sports Grille. We decided to take the plunge and pay a bit more for dinner at Deep Blue Sushi. The restaurant is an oasis in a sea of chaos. It sits right in the middle of the terminal building, just inside the security gates. The designers did a great job with rice paper screens and fake bamboo plants and big upholstered seats and banquets which all serve to block out the sea of humanity that lurks just outside.
We had the place to ourselves for about 20 minutes and so had good service. Greg and I ordered drinks and then ordered steamed pork dumplings, chicken lo mein and tangerine peel chicken with red peppers. The food was good, but not as good as Seng Thai, but what can you expect from a food service, airport restaurant. The best part of the place was the comfy, oasis-like atmosphere.
