Amtrak Upgrades Menu Aboard Acela

WASHINGTON — Amtrak is improving the food options for First Class passengers aboard the Acela between Boston and Washington. 

First-class customers can now select from rotating menus consisting of freshly made chef-inspired items such as omelets, huevos rancheros, eggs benedict or fresh seasonal fruit for breakfast, and entrees such as chicken tandoori, lobster crab cakes, vegetable puff pastry, artisan cheese and fruit or freshly made salads for lunch and dinner. Kosher and vegan meals will continue to be available by notifying Amtrak at least 24-hours in advance.

“Amtrak continues to make customer-focused improvements, including reimagining our onboard Acela dining options in First-class with creative new options that travelers will enjoy,” said Amtrak Executive Vice President of Marketing and Revenue, Roger Harris. “As intercity travel increases and we offer additional Acela frequencies to better serve our customers, we want to ensure we are offering a safe, superior travel experience from departure to destination.” 

The new menu can be viewed online.
