Set apart from the rest of the iPad ordering lot, you will find one last hold out, closer to the end of Terminal C in LaGuardia. It’s still guilty of the same impersonal iPad-server interface, but at least the food is slightly better. And by slightly I mean the difference between The Hangover and The Hangover 2. In other words, virtually imperceptible.

The wine is served warm, for some strange reason, and so are the sweet, soft Marcona almonds, which are vastly different from regular almonds, or roasted for that matter, in case you’ve never had them. They are actually a touch chewy, more like fresh almonds, making them a novel treat that’s not all that easy to come by state-side, being that they are much more common in Europe.

The other slightly okay thing on the menu was the white pizza. A bit chewy (like the almonds- perhaps a theme is brewing?), but better than one might expect in terms of flavor. Granted those are the low expectations talking.
