Amtrak Sustainable Seasonal Menu

These new dishes are rolling out on a monthly cycle and feature sustainability improvements including eliminating 95% of plastic packaging and individually packaged products, preparing more items in the Lounge’s kitchen to reduce waste, and replacing disposable service ware with elegant china, glassware, and cutlery.

  • For breakfast, new offerings include a pepper jack cheese muffin, avocado toast, and overnight oats.
  • A variety of Amy’s Bread pastries and street corn hummus are available for a quick snack
  • A grilled chicken ciabatta baguette, Santa Fe chicken flatbread, and poached pear, blue cheese and pecan salad are a few of the new lunch and dinner items.

The rotating menu offered in the Metropolitan Lounge comes on the heels of recent investments and improvements made by Amtrak to elevate its food and beverage offerings.

This includes a rotating STARR Restaurant Group menu in Acela First Class and new snack and beverage menus at other Amtrak Metropolitan Lounges across the country. Amtrak will also introduce Cafe Acela upgrades for a more premium experience.

The Metropolitan Lounge at Moynihan Train Hall is available for Amtrak Guest Rewards® Select Executive and Select Plus members, Acela First Class and private room customers, and Single-Day Pass holders with same-day reservations. The space offers luxurious customer seating, a grand entry, and an expansive balcony with café-style seating overlooking the Train Hall.
