When the new Central Terminal at LaGuardia Airport’s Concourse B opens later this year, it will have six dining establishments representing the tastes of New York.

The list of restaurants, announced by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday, will include Shake Shack and Irving Farm Coffee Roasters as well as 5 Boroughs Food Emporium; Kingside; Osteria Fusco, operated by chef Scott Conant; and La Chula, operated by Chef Julian Medina.

These restaurants and others will be located in the Central Terminal’s Concourse B, which is close to completion and slated to open to passengers by year‘s end.

Along with Concourse A, slated to open by 2020, the redesigned Central Terminal will have a total of 35 gates.

Construction of the new terminal began in 2016. The new Central Terminal building is being built closer to the Grand Central Parkway, and its opening will be followed by the demolition of the Central Terminal building, which first opened in 1964. The $4 billion project will feature central arrivals and departures halls and be linked to Terminals C and D, which will eventually be replaced by a single building.
