Print Article Email Article

Baseball season is here! Whether you are a New York Mets or New York Yankees fan, both Citi Field and Yankee Stadium have truly raised the bar in food offerings, in addition to old school baseball game fare-not that there’s anything wrong with the classic 'dog n beer. (Hot dog king of Coney Island, Nathan's, can be found at both stadiums.)

Citi Field Foodspot Highlights

*Citi Field now houses a Shake Shack, one of NYC’s most popular burger joints.

*Next door to Shake Shack is Danny Meyer food spot, Blue Smoke, serving up tasty Kansas City style spare ribs with all the fixings. [Section 140]

*El Verano Taqueria, a taco stand, also from Danny Meyer. [section 139]

*Craving a good steak? Now you can grab one of Pat LaFrieda’s Steak Sandwiches, at one of two onsite locations. There is also an adjacent cart that offers meatball sliders. [Section 139]

*Esca’s Dave Pasternack created the menu for Catch of the Day, which serves up shrimp po’boys, fried calamari, crab cakes and other tasty treats. [Section 102]

*Seeking something Italian? Mama’s of Corona offers Italian hero sandwiches, served up from the team at Leo’s Latticini, plus cannolis and cupcakes for your sweet tooth. [Section 105 and 415]

*New to the scene since 2014, Box Frites. Their Mac & Cheese Frites will have 'em lining up. 

*World’s Fare Market, located on the field level, [where Shake Shack, Pat Frieda’s Steak Sandwich and Blue Smoke are] is also home to numerous other food spots, including top notch sushi at Daruma of Tokyo.

*Citi Field will once again be hosting the Bacon and Beer Classic event on April 25.

Yankee Stadium Foodspot Highlights

*Switch up your casual baseball dining experience for something more elegant with NYY Steak, renowned for its 27 oz. long bone rib eye steak. [Gate 6] If you're in the city, try out their sprawling Midtown location

*Nothing beats a good chicken parmesan sandwich. Parm, created by Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi, bring their Nolita sandwich shop to Yankee fans. [Great Hall]

*Jonesing for a stuffed NYC deli sandwich? Lobel’s of New York serves hand carved sandwiches to order [Sections 134, 322]

*New addition-a Chicken and Waffles Cart.
