In March, when the Yankees unveiled the food options at the new park, we were a bit underwhelmed by the choices and felt that Mets — with their Shake Shack and Blue Smoke — one-upped the Yanks. Today, as fans gear up for a brand new ballpark, Serious Eats, one of the top food blogs around, published its first look at the Yankee Stadium food. With high quality photos and a thorough write-up of the concession options, Erin Zimmer prepares fans for what they will expect.
I have but one word of warning for Bronx-bound patrons though: Beware of sticker shock. The garlic fries, soggy when I tried them, cost $5 for a small and $8 for a large. Hot dogs range from $5.50 (Hebrew National) to $6.75 (Nathan’s). Carvel in a helmet up is up to $6.50, and the Lobel’s sandwiches are pushing $15. To temper those dollars, hunt out the reasonably-price $6 beers.
Oh, and one more thing: Splurge on some frickles — deep-fried pickles — from Brother Jimmy’s. Those things are ridiculous decadent and delicious.
