Or maybe you have some important work tasks to do that involve drinking gin and tonics, eating snacks and playing on your phone...

Looking at the eateries in T7:

True Burger: Beer 15$+tax https://goo.gl/maps/ghXpXqx1P8mPNjrj9
Brindle: 13$+ https://goo.gl/maps/9nc3GJpNcytfLDuL7

65$ would buy you about 2-3 beers and something to eat.

I don't think I've ever seen a legit eatery with such terrible reviews as True Burger

No, it was referring to JFK.

You must not fly out of EWR very often. I do agree that the experience varies by Terminal beyond the reasonable at JFK. T1/T4 vs T5/T7 is .

Not unusual for those from say the UES, Queens, Brooklyn or Long Island.
For years and years as a heavy JFK and LGA user, the idea of my going to EWR was almost akin to the idea of my going to Skavsta (or whichever “Stockholm” airport Ryanair was flying) or to Sturup (which Ryanair would sell as “Copenhagen”): best avoided.

I fly out of EWR almost every other week! I would say that JFK T7 is, right now, the worst airport experience with the sub-par concessions, lack of pre-check/priority security, and the lounge situation.

JFK T7 is probably the best New York airport experience. Check-in closes at 10.55pm. Which means arriving by 10.50pm welcomes you an empty check-in area and empty security lines 5 out of 6 times I've been flying this specific route since April. No frills, no drills - client dinner until 9.30 and then take a cab to JFK.

Obviously a different experience than I had, would just caution that on different days of the week in the summer, Norse has a bank leaving the 11:30p-12:30a to FCO, OSL, CDG and BER which can make security a pain

I happened to spot the SAS A333 running CPH-JFK yesterday while getting to T4 at JFK. I didn't realize they operated this with a wide body. The amount of flights to NYC and Scandinavia between SAS/United/Delta/Norse is really baffling. The lack of flights to my actual destinations even more so.

Scandinavians tend to mostly want to go to NYC and then (far behind it) LA when visiting the US. NYC airports cover a lot of Americans. And JFK and EWR have a lot of flights that feed these Scandinavian-bound flights to pull in Americans from airports with fewer or no Scandinavian-bound flights. Seems like NYC-Scandinavia connectivity is a business match made in heaven if trying to more reliably fill up long-haul flying planes than to gamble on filling up such planes.

Somewhat old bump here; I've not been to T7 since the BA days when I was rather frequent for well over a decade, and mostly loved that terminal. The sloped security was one of a kind, and turning left into CCR great stuff.
I booked the SAS service to CPH leaving at 11:20PM as it means I can do a full day in town, and take a car around 9:30PM as traffic should be clear by then. No Blade service available at that time unfortunately.
Would you say arriving 10:20 is enough if one plans to check a bag into the hold? I have SAS priority, but do they even have priority check-in at T7?

thanks

Since the TSA mandated checkin for bags is T-60min I wouldn't cut it that short?
