The lounge also has a new seasonal menu that celebrates Bay Area purveyors from Ravi Kapur, executive chef, Liholiho Yacht Club. The Hawaiian-born, James Beard Award-nominated chef will continue to bring his flair to the Centurion Lounge at SFO with dishes inspired by his lineage and family memories. These include gochujang marinated chicken thighs, wild rice and coconut soup, and black vinegar and honey glazed baby carrots.
