Since it opened at the start of the 2009 season, Citi Field has been heralded as one of the top ballparks for food, though Yankee Stadium is hot on its tails. It’s a place where baseball fans and their maybe less-than-interested friends can catch a game — and everyone can enjoy some great food. Many of the foods are local to New York City, and include vegetarian and gluten-free friendly options.
Their good reputation doesn't stop them from always striving to get better. They've brought in some new choices (Mister Softee and an Empire State Craft Beer, a stand featuring all local beers). They've expanded the menus of fan favorites like Shake Shack, Pat LaFrieda, and Catch of the Day. They’ve also added a vegan slice at Two Boots Pizza and chicken pipian nachos at El Verano Taqueria.
So what if the Mets are hovering around .500 and Matt Harvey is out for the season? The food alone is worth the trip to Citi Field. Whether you want something classic (hot dog or ice cream) or expand your horizons (a seafood platter or churros), Citi Field has it. It'll be hard to focus on the baseball game when there are so many things to eat. For a look at some classic and new offerings, take a stroll through our slideshow.
Bacon and Cheddar Topped Frites
In the Taste of the City area located in center field on the field level, you'll find these fries at the Box Frites stand.
Empire State Craft Beer
On the field level in section 133 and on the promenade level in section 414, you'll find a rotating selection of local craft beers, including Bronx Pale Ale, Coney Island Lager, Southern Tier IPA, and Original Sin Hard Cider.
