Terminal 4 at JFK International Airport is about to get a “shake” up.

City favorites Shake Shack and Blue Smoke will soon set up shop in the terminal as it goes under renovation, announced food and beverage operator SSP America. The first phase of the restaurant upgrades will be ready by May 2013.

The expansion will cost $28 million and is partially inspired by a larger Delta Airlines expansion at the terminal.

“These new restaurant offerings, which complement the exciting renovations made by SSP  just a few years ago, demonstrate that Terminal 4 is again raising the bar, “said Alain Maca, president of JFK Airport.

Along with offshoots of the popular NYC hotspots, other new eateries include: Uptown Brasserie, Street Food by Marcus Samuelsson, La Brea Bakery, Dunkin’ Donuts, Central Diner, McDonald’s, Le Grand Comptoir, Asobu, Camden food co., The Palm Bar & Grille and Buffalo Wild Wings.
