While we’ll always cherish childhood memories of summers at Shea Stadium, huddled in the bleachers munching hot dogs and chips (which undoubtedly cost more than the seats themselves), a whole new world has been opened up at the revived and renovated Citi Field; the state-of-the-art home of the Mets.
He uses actual filet mignon in his sumptuous, six-inch long sandwiches, augmented with au jus, sweet onions, and Monterey jack cheese.
Fabulous food options abound at two sit-down restaurants and plenty of club spaces, not to mention a veritable wonderland of truly exceptional concessions stands. So whether you’re a diehard fan and season ticket holder, or merely consider baseball a backdrop for a great feast, here’s where to chow down in style at Citi Field!
1. Arancini Bros
Originally a late-night-food adjunct to a Brooklyn bar, it’s no wonder this vendor was able to branch out to ballgames. Their deep-fried, easy-to-eat risotto balls (filled with pesto, buffalo chicken or classic ragu) have major stadium appeal – and it helps that they’re packed into perfectly portable egg cartons.
