sorry i'm late to the topic - as a ice lounge STH since day 1 i'll answer as many questions about the lounge that have been asked
it's essentially the same since it opened. i have absolutely no problem with it and don't think it needs updating.
-as has been said, when it's a sell out, it can get a bit cramped but not too terrible
-bar stays open an hour after the game but very few people stay.
-carving station used to be its own but they combined it with the rotating food station on the lafayette entrance.
-cheeseburgers, french fries, chicken fingers, hot dogs on lafayette side kitchen
-salad bar on lafayette side (two soups also)
-coffee in the center
-sushi (same as at Yankee Stadium - not bad at all) - it used to be on the side by the goal bar but the line would snake all the way into the back corner by one of the mens bathrooms, so they moved it into the middle.
-hot food station by goal bar rotates 4 different foods each game - things like pastas, chicken, fish, etc
-what used to be a pasta station has been replaced by desserts which used to be in the center but moved to leave a little more open flow. desserts are usual cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, brownies
-pizza and pretzels on goal bar side kitchen
-the bar occasionally does have the frozen ice inlay but usually not anymore
-they did away with birch beer and replaced it with lipton brisk raspberry ice tea which is the worst
most nights, 35% of black seats are unfilled at least.
bathrooms do not have dividers between urinals
cool art on the walls in the ice lounge (black and white blurred hockey pictures)
