"Menu" makes it sound pretty nice.

Looks like a bit more of a salad bar and a couple of new spreads, are the mushrooms new? Am I missing anything big?

I was hoping the pancake machine and popcorn would return.

I'm glad to see Bailey's is complimentary again. Leave it to Delta to take something away and bring it back and call it an enhancement (same with the soup). I wish they would have different soup choices, I really liked the chili. Glad to see the parm. spread return as well, I liked that better than that fake hard cheese.

As long as they leave the Bailey's and a drinkable vodka for free, I'll be happy

My wife is also a huge Bailey's fan and will be very happy as well. She isn't on flyertalk and was first made aware of the alcohol changes last year when she ordered her usual double Bailey's on the rocks and was told "$14 please" by the bartender (and he seemed just as irritated when she refused the drink after he explained the changes to her and she said she would take a diet Coke instead).

Hopefully with the return of free Bailey's they won't run out of it in flight as much now.

The olive mix (newish but not new) may be the unsung hero of the SkyClub food offerings. But then I like pickled veggies...

+1; those and the sliced carrots. Go good with Miller Lite.

I enjoyed the pickled red peppers they had during the test period. I was hoping those would have been on the new "menu"

This confirms the information that we got this noon at the FLL club where the agents were adamant that it was a good thing because the clubs were now so much less crowded since the new membership procedures.

The new menu kind of reminds me of the in-flight snack boxes...

Me, too. I guess the pancake machines were just leased for the trial? The "new" Skinny Top Popcorn - what is that? How does it compare?

Skinny pop is processed low fat/lower calorie popcorn, nothing like the Garrett's they use to have. Costco carries it and has samples of it sometimes and I have tried it there and it isn't too bad and will be a nice low calorie alternative. No where near as good as the Garrett's but I'm sure has a lot fewer calories.

The new menu lacks any real inspiration, but to be fair, it beats the heck out of most domestic airline clubs like UA/US/AA with regard to comp items. Does it beat Centurion or some of the other non-airline affilsted clubs? No, but I will give it a shot as long as the overcrowding is kept in check...

The hard boiled eggs are a nice breakfast enhancement. Glad to see Bailey's back...

I liked the wedding soup. I just hope they have a salt shaker handy

Where did you see that? It's still on the Luxury Bar menu for $7.

DL and I have different definitions of lunch and dinner, but the menu is surprisingly extensive. I'm not convinced that all of these goodies will be in all SCs all the time. I also wonder about lounges having enough space for such an expanded buffet line or even enough toasters to avoid lines.

I'm sorry that the chicken beast meat pieces on small skewers didn't make the list. It was a tasty low fat protein choice. I'm also sorry that DL apparently didn't go for packaged items for hygiene.

May I also say that I shall miss the fake cheese as again it had protein and calcium. It went well with wine.
