Jet Blue Terminal 5, JFK Airport

The T5 Experience, the new Jet Blue Terminal 5 at JFK New York officially opened to travelers October 20, 2008. T5 gives travelers a respite from their usually mundane air travel with six bold restaurants designed by the Manhattan-based design studio ICRAVE. The restaurants include Aeronuova (Italian trattoria); Piquillo (Spanish tapas); 5ive Steak; La Vie (French bistro) and Deep Blue (sushi and Asian). The restaurants’ contemporary designs depart from the traditional, subdued airport restaurant designs travelers experience all too often. At Aeronuova, modernism meets retro glamour with classic Italian films displayed on sleek flat screen televisions. The interior of Piquillo is entirely clad in colorful mosaic tile, a nod to classic Moorish design. The screen wall of 5IVE Steak works as a partition, a visual graphic logo, and a window into and out of the restaurant. Deep Blue emanates an ethereal feeling of being in a water world complemented by a modern, clean aesthetic while La Vie has the look of a classic French bistro. ICRAVE also reinvented the gate hold area with “re:vive,” counter height tables where passengers can access touch-screen monitors to order meals delivered directly to their tables. These ICRAVE-designed restaurants offer an environment of high style, sophisticated design and contemporary graphics that even the most jaded travelers can enjoy.
