Over the past year we’ve seen several airport restaurants and bars in the US join Priority Pass. The concept is that at some airports Priority Pass has a tough time striking a deal with a major lounge due to crowding issues, so when that’s not possible, they instead work with a restaurant.

Priority Pass pays a fixed amount for each guest who enters a lounge, so instead Priority Pass is just paying these restaurants a fixed amount, and then you can spend some dollar amount at that restaurant (typically $28-30). So far in the US, Priority Pass restaurants & bars include the following:

Last week Priority Pass added a restaurant at Boston Logan Airport, and now they’ve added a second restaurant at the airport – Stephanie’s at Boston Logan Airport is now part of Priority Pass.

As a reminder, the following are some of the most popular credit cards that come with Priority Pass memberships (I’ve also listed the respective guesting privileges):

Stephanie’s at Boston Logan Airport

While Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill is located in Terminal C landside (before security), Stephanie’s is located in Terminal B airside (after security), across from gate B24. Airlines flying out of Terminal B include American, Spirit, and United.

Stephanie’s will be open to Priority Pass members between 4:30AM and 30 minutes before the last departure, so it has much longer hours for members than Jerry Remy’s, which only accepts Priority Pass members between 2PM and 8PM.

Priority Pass members will be entitled to $28 worth of food & drinks per person. In order to be eligible you need to have a same day day confirmed boarding pass, though there’s no explicit requirement that it needs to be an outbound boarding pass (so in theory you could visit on arrival). You’re also limited to bringing in one guest per Priority Pass card, for a total credit of up to $56 for two people.

The Priority Pass member will be responsible for any overage beyond the $28 credit, and that credit can’t be applied towards gratuity (and personally I think it’s appropriate to tip, as a Priority Pass membership is just a form of payment here).

The restaurant is described as offering “sophisticated comfort food in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere,” and as having “bigger flavors and fresher ingredients with a simple yet elegant presentation.”

You can find the restaurant’s menu here.

Bottom line

It’s great to see Priority Pass add a second restaurant at Boston Logan Airport, in particular since this one has longer hours for members. The catch is that this one is past security, so you may have to clear security twice if you want to visit, assuming you’re not flying on an airline departing from Terminal B.

Priority Pass members could visit two restaurants now if they wanted to, as you could visit Jerry Remy’s for a meal or drink, and then go to Stephanie’s. I’m not necessarily saying you’d want to do that, but you could. I’ll be passing through Boston soon, so hope to check out one (or maybe both) of these restaurants.

Anyone plan to check out Stephanie’s at BOS?

Comments

  1. Went to The Beanery in LAX this weekend. It’s a mess….. No one came to take my order for 30 minutes even though I kept getting told by the hostess that someone would be with me shortly. Other people were having similar problem

  2. Air Canada gates (B1-B3) are separate from the rest of terminal. You would have to clear twice in order to visit.

  3. I’ve never tried Stephanie’s at their airport but I know their in-city location is very popular. I look forward to trying it.

  4. I’ve eaten here many times, good staff, better than average airport food and convenient to the AA shuttle and UA gates.

  5. Stupid question: if i visit with another person, and i have a priority pass card but they don’t, is $28 applied to the bill, or $56? Thanks in advance.

  6. Looking forward to when Newark gets some of these, especially Terminals C and B, both of which currently do not have full-time Priority Pass lounges post-security.

  7. I visited this restaurant a couple months ago during a trip through BOS. Food and service was pretty decent, though they weren’t great about clearing used plates. Interestingly, this Stephanie’s has been available to be mystery shopped for one of the mystery shopping companies I work for for several months. They’re always looking for shoppers and not always finding them. I wonder if this indicates that they’re not meeting their profit margins and hoping to increase them through priority pass?

    Posting this comment anonymously because of strict mystery shopping company rules about revealing clients.

  8. Hehe. We see your photo though anon! Can you post the details of your mystery shopping company after asking lucky to remove your photo.

    I am never comfortable giving so much information that these companies ask for.

  9. Oops.

    Well, @lucky, if you can make that photo disappear somehow that’d be great.

    I work for a variety of different companies – some better, some worse. Mystery Shopper Forums are a great place to start and decide what companies you want to work with. I’m not allowed to say whether I’ve ever shopped Stephanie’s, but I don’t think I’m precluded from mentioning that they are looking for mystery shoppers.

  10. Important to note Lucky that the language in the conditions state they will only honor 1 guest, so $56 credit max.

    “Cardholder may only register 1 Guest per visit to receive US$28 deduction. Any additional Guests will not be eligible for US$28 deduction.”

  11. Stephanie’s is right across from UA gates for BOS-SFO. Probably better than most of othe PP restaurants else where. However, it can get pretty busy.

  12. I really wish they would add some restaurants to other airports such as TPA (Tampa) which has no Priority Pass locations, BWI (Baltimore), EWR (Newark), PHL (Philadelphia), and CLT (Charlotte) which all have either a very limited selection of lounges often not in the concourse I am flying from or the dreaded Minute Suites facilities (PHL & CLT).

  13. I haven’t been, but I do feel compelled to say that this is the best-named Priority Pass restaurant by far 😉

  14. Fort Lauderdale needs one badly as well. So many international flights. Emirates, British Airways, azul, Avianca, and no Priority Pass.

  15. It is quite good for airport food. The staff is not the worst in the airport and it’s a good location.
    Also, not a bad bar so that’s a few drinks worth of credit.

    Question: if you have two PP cards (thru amex and chase), is there a way to double it? Or “exit and re-enter”?
