Today's Times profiles the eats coming at both Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. We certainly prefer sports bars and dirty water dogs, but the foodie in us appreciates the showcasing of local purveyors. Unfortunately, the cost of admission alone might prevent us from spending $15 on a sandwich with Lobel's beef (we've had steaks from Lobel's once – yes they were spectacular — in both taste and cost).
Yankee Stadium will feature, amongst others, Masaharu Morimoto (brilliant, if overpriced in Chelsea), April Bloomfield (we're not a fan, if only because we've never gotten a seat at her restaurants due to what seems like serious attitude from the obnoxious hosts at her too-cool-for-school hangouts), and a local Bronx sushi purveyor called "Soy Kitchen". Citi Field looks to be the more interesting and also more "populist" spot, that is if transplanted $8 brisket-laced hamburgers qualify — Danny Meyer, one of NYC's top restaurateurs, takes the helm of food services.
Good times for foodies, though it remains to be seen if anyone will have money left in their wallets to eat at the games.
