Eat Local

The Lower Level Dining Concourse may boast some big names—Shake Shack, Magnolia Bakery, Hale & Hearty Soups—but did you know that all of the restaurants are local? Quality matters to us, and we hope you’ll notice the difference when you choose to grab breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack for the train at one of our 20 fast-casual restaurants. A wide range of beer and wine is also available for sale to pair with any craving.
