The plywood is gone, just in time for the holiday travel rush. That God-awful CBGB-branded restaurant outpost – dubbed CBGB Lab – is now serving at Newark Liberty Airport. And, as this photo illustrates, there are already diners taking advantage.
As previously reported, CBGB apparently teamed up with OTG Management to create the restaurant-bar, with chef Harold Moore at the helm. Menu includes pricey pieces like $11 chicken wings, $11.50 wedge salad, and a $14 cheeseburger, among other items. There is even an “iPad ordering system” for customers on each tabletop … to keep you distracted.

Agreed. Not to mention, it’s not even on New York soil. Punk is still dead.
Here’s the full menu. Enjoy the heartburn. Bah humbug … it’s a parody:
