I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same).
Priority Pass is a card that gets you into lounges around the world. You don’t have to belong to an individual lounge program, this program works to have lounges in most of the places you go.
There are over 1000 airport lounges that a Priority Pass will gain you access to, most of those are spread throughout airports around the world.
They’ve added restaurants in some airports instead of lounges in order to expand their footprint. Your Priority Pass card gets you a $28 food and beverage credit (plus $28 per guest, where applicable).
In Denver I’ll make the hop over to concourse C on the train, all the gates are connected airside, and have a meal at Timberline Steaks. Most recently it was breakfast.
Salmon breakfast pizza
Then in Miami directly in front of Precheck security in American Airlines concourse D is Corona Beach House.
If they’d add restaurants at the Austin airport and Washington National I feel like I’d never have to pay for food again.
Here’s the current list of airport restaurants where you can eat with your Priority Pass:
- Cleveland – Bar Symon, between gates C4 and C6
- Denver – Timberline Steaks (restaurant) – Concourse C center
- Lexington, Kentucky – Kentucky Ale Taproom (restaurant) – after security next to Concourse B entrance
- Miami – Corona Beach House (restaurant) – Concourse D between Gates D23 and D24
- New York JFK – Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, Terminal 8 on the right after security
- Portland – Capers Cafe Le Bar (restaurant) – Concourse C after security
- Portland – Capers Market (restaurant) Concourse D after security
- Portland – House Spirits Distillery (restaurant) – Gate C6
- St. Louis – The Pasta House (restaurant) – Terminal 1 Landside by Baggage Claim
- St. Louis – The Pasta House (restaurant) – Terminal 2 Opposite Gate E6
The terms at each venue vary, you may not be able to do takeaway, you may be on the hook for costs beyond the base meal price, you may be limited in guests regardless of your Priority Pass terms — so if it matters how much on top of your $28 per person credit you get then look up the restaurant before you go since terms can change as well.
I have Priority Pass Select cards from several different credit cards, for instance I have both the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and the Platinum Card by American Express. I actually write on the back of the card which credit card it came with because each offers different privileges.
