Balducci's at JFK

When I left for my Arizona trip last week I didn't have a chance to have breakfast. By the time I got to the airport I was starving and I didn't have all that much time to spend searching the food wasteland at JFK for something decently tasty. Imagine my surprise and delight at discovering semi-hidden Balducci's outpost...

Apparently this Balducci's outpost opened last year but it's in the Delta Terminal nearish to gate 23 and not super prominent this was the first time that I noticed it.

They had a nice selection of grab and go sandwiches, snacks and drinks. The bagel and lox immediately caught my eye. It was around $8.00, which isn't terrible for airport food. They gave me a nice sized slice of salmon. The bagel left much to be desired. The outside looked so nicely browned, I think I built up my expectation a bit higher than an airport bagel could deliver. To be fair, to save time I pulled mine out of the grab and go case, so the bagel was chilled. I wonder if I had stayed in line if I could have gotten the bagel toasted. That might have helped. Next time, I'll see if toasting is an option and if I have time before my next Delta flight, I'll definitely peruse their full range of options.
