Where to Eat at the 2017 U.S. OpenAugust 15, 2017 - by Niko Vercelletto
The U.S. Open in New York City is one of the top tennis tournaments in the world. From the amazing aces to the 20-stroke rallies, simply being there can work up a serious appetite. Here are some of the best food and drink options, from fancy restaurants and wine bars to simple burger bungalows.
1. With high ceilings, bright colors, and a casual yet still elegant wine and sushi bar, Aces is a fantastic option for all seafood lovers. The shrimp is sumptuous and the choice of wine is vast. If you have the Aces Platinum Package, you can even enjoy the flavorful cuisine in your suite.
2. If you’re in the mood for something a little lighter, the Heineken Red Star Patio Café & Bar is available to all ticket holders, making it one of the best choices for grab-and-go offerings. With a view of the expansive Open grounds, the café provides fresh selections of sandwiches and salads paired (if you like) with a cocktail.
3. Champions Bar & Grill is a favorite for all yearly visitors to the Open and a staple of the grounds. A modern take on the traditional clubhouse, the restaurant has classic leather and wood accents, lending a premium feel. Steaks, seafood, chops, and salads are all on the menu. Also, don’t worry about missing any of the action on the courts if you decide to linger. Live matches are displayed on all of the many TVs in Champions.
4. Sometimes something stronger is called for, especially if your favorite player is down a set. If that’s the case, then the Grey Goose Bar will be your new hangout. This full service bar features the Honey Deuce, the signature cocktail of the U.S. Open, right beside Grey Goose’s own specialty drinks.
5. Decisions, decisions. One of the best things about the US Open is the many options provided. The Food Village continues that quest for variety. It is easily the best place to go for casual dining with eateries like Prime Burger, Franks & Fries, and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Shop. With 14 different eateries, Food Village has something for everyone.
