Acela Express Dining Options

At-Seat Meals

Exclusive to First Class Passengers

Our rotating at-seat menu service allows Acela Express First Class passengers to enjoy greater dining selections while traveling.

A number of the entrees offered on the menu will be prepared using the sous vide method, which seals in taste and maintains the nutritional value of the food. Amtrak has been using this method very successfully since 1995 in the dining cars of its long distance trains.

Typically found in fine dining restaurants, our exquisite cuisines are thoughtfully created by our renowned Culinary Advisory Team, a group of nine Amtrak employees, suppliers and other culinary professionals with more than 140 years of combined experience. Consulting the team on the menu was expert chef Michel Richard, owner of Washington, DC's Michel Richard Citronelle and the James Beard Chef of the Year for 2007. For your next ride on Acela Express, don't forget to try our refreshed wine selections, premium beverages, upgraded spirits and a wide assortment of Mighty Leaf teas.
