Travelers looking for a cocktail before their flights at Westchester County Airport are temporarily out of luck as the airport’s restaurant and bar gets a major overhaul.
Skytop Restaurant has gradually stopped operating since last year, when a new company, American Transit Host, won a 5-year contract to take over the space and began renovations, airport officials said.
The restaurant completely closed this month and is expected to re-open in mid-June, they said.
When it re-opens, the location will feature a sushi bar, Subway, coffee shop and a sit-down restaurant, Assistant Airport Manager Steve Ferguson told The Journal News.
“If you look at other airports of this size, to have a full-service restaurant is a luxury,” he said. “It’s going to be an excellent change, a little more variety and first-class food.”
Thornwood-based American Transit Host could not be reached for comment.
In the meantime, hungry and thirsty travelers still have other options, including Dunkin Donuts on the lower level and a concession area in the departure lounge, officials said.
