When most folks hear the words Yankee Stadium, they immediately think of… Well, the New York Yankees and baseball. But if you are a foodie, like I am, your mind immediately strays to the question, what’s new with their dining options?
I know it’s a bit of a stretch for many, namely diehard Yankee fans, however I’d like to take you on a little adventure through the plethora of tasty options available on the 2019 Yankee Stadium dining guide. This year, more than ever, the menus are more inclusive for all culinary tastes, including vegans and vegetarians.
I've viewed a whole lot of menus and dining guides in my day, and I was super impressed with the ease of which the Yankee dining guide is to navigate and find options for whatever your taste buds desire and exactly where to find your desired delicacy within the stadium.
There is no shortage of options for the All-American all-inclusive "I will eat anything" fan. From Bareburger with choices ranging from bison to beef to turkey, to City Winery with its Burrata Burger made with custom-blended beef, imported Italian burrata, pancetta, oven-roasted tomato relish, baby arugula and its City Winery Burger which includes Custom-blended beef, Applewood smoked bacon, pinot noir red onion jam, drunken goat cheese - it's a carnivore's delight!
But, wait, not so fast, many of these "meat-eater delight places also cater quite extensively (and inclusively) to plant-based diet attendees. Take for instance, Bareburger and Field Roast's vegan burger, Frank's Redhot Terrace's vegetarian Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Bun, served with celery slaw, creamy blue cheese and Noodle Bowl's vegan Veggie Sushi and edamame. Serious Yum factor!
With a large-scaled focus on eating gluten-free, there is absolutely no limit to the options across the board at the majority of eateries including Might Quinn's selection of Gluten-free baby back ribs and chicken wings and Premio hot or sweet Italian sausage, turkey burger and Red Bridge Beer at NY Grill.
The basics are still here as well with lots of chicken, shrimp and pork options such as the all-new for 2019, Crispy Maple Chicken Sandwich with spicy maple drizzle, white cheddar cheese spread and pickle on a butter-toasted, the Roast Beef Po' Boy made with Garlic studded roast beef, shaved iceberg, sliced tomato, pickle or the
Shrimp Po' Boy with Cajun fried shrimp, shaved iceberg, sliced tomato, pickle at Mastercard Batters Eye Deck.
For the steak lover, Lobel's stand features their signature hallmark Lobel's USDA Prime Steak Sandwich, as well as their decadent Steak & Potato Fries, comprised of shaved prime steak, fried russet potatoes, sour cream, green onions, cheddar, bacon.
Pork lovers will salivate over King's Hawaiian's Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Kalua Pork Sandwich made with banana-leaf-braised pork, shoyu red cabbage slaw on a King's Hawaiian bun or their Original Sweet Pineapple BBQ Kalua Pork Nachos topped with banana-leaf-braised pork, shredded cheddar cheese, scallions, spicy mayo, and wonton chips.
A few other additions for 2019 include Buffalo Wild Wings, with their offering of traditional and boneless wings served with a variety of sauces and dry rubs, as well as Big Mozz, featuring melty Wisconsin mozzarella cheese in a fresh garlic, parsley and pecorino Romano crust.
If you are not looking to chow down a huge hungry man (or woman!) meal, Yankee fans can enjoy some wonderful light fare, such as Assorted deli wraps (Kosher),
fresh fruit and salads from Melissa's Farmer's Market.
Sweets are in huge supply which include an array of milkshake varieties, served in a souvenir cup. Honestly, the Chocolate All-Star Shake made with chocolate chip cookie, fudge brownie, M&Ms and crushed Oreos sounds mouth watering!
And lest we forget baseball stadium staples that are always on hand, including the infamous frankfurter, popcorn, cotton candy and peanuts which are all available in abundance throughout the venue!
With all these food options, one might lose sight of why they are at Yankee Stadium in the first place - to see our mighty Bronx Bombers play ball!!
