Located in Delta's newly built Terminal C, Poppy's Bagels is a transformative fast-casual breakfast concept that offers fresh baked New York style bagels and homemade spreads with high-quality locally sourced ingredients. Travelers will have the opportunity to experience a real New York bagel without having to leave the airport! Poppy's Bagels serves breakfast until 11am before changing to a new concept (The Line Sports Grill) for lunch and dinner.

After 11am, OTG brings flavors of the local New York sports scene to LaGuardia airport with their newest addition, The Line Sports Grill. When walking to The Line, travelers can see Citi Field and Arthur Ashe Stadium in the distance, and in just a few minutes they can enjoy a local beer or wine from one of many local New York breweries and wineries to pair with The Line Sports Sidewinder Fries and piled high nachos. The fun and unique restaurant focuses on elevated pub menu favorites but encompasses flavorful twists such as their Szechuan Hot Chicken Sando, decadent loaded fries and more. On the beverage side of things, travelers will have an eclectic range of beer, wine, and spirits options hailing from our neighbors to the East and North. Guests will never miss a game as The Line Sports Grill offers a variety of options on larger-than-life screens to indulge in their favorite sports including college, international, local, and professional.

The Line Sports Grill is fully equipped with OTG's latest flo™️ Xgen technology - designed exclusively by and for OTG to enhance the travel experience by allowing their customers to order directly from their phone by scanning a QR code at their table. Their tech enhancements are fully equipped with language support programs that simplify communication for the global traveler. Their stunning and intuitive visual menus make finding and ordering your favorite foods, beverages, and market items easier than ever before (available as a website and as an Android/ iOS app). The tech is focused on making the customer's journey easy and convenient to use. They pride themselves in taking the guesswork out of airport dining by giving their customers a variety of options. Travelers can expect contactless payments such as tap credit and expanded coverage for Apple and Google Pay. The kiosks also support pay via the OTG app as well as PayPal and Venmo.
