The Great Debate - Which is Better for Chain Food Lovers Citi Field or Yankee Stadium


It is almost spring time and all across NY there is such a buzz in the air about the opening of the two new ballparks. I am very excited because I have an obnoxious amount of tickets to Yankee games so I will be able to feast on all the new food options there a lot. I have to say though, Citi Field is definitely delivering in the chain food category and giving the new Yankee Stadium a run for their money. Everything looks so good, I might actually go to a Mets game.

Therefore I decided that I would have a Great Debate on Chain of Food asking readers which stadium has the better chain food options. As the season progresses, I will update everyone on the chain items I try. Oh and P.S. - I am going to meet the whole entire Yankee team tomorrow (hollah).

Yankee Stadium Chain Food

Hard Rock Cafe - wow a whole chain restaurant with awesome burgers - they get points for that
Brother Jimmy's - gotta love that, I love BBQ
Johnny Rocket's - I will be skipping that unless Jeter is singing to me in that white uniform
Moe's Southwest Grill - I have never been but will def hit it up, I have always wanted to try it
Famous Familigia Pizza - eh I don't really eat pizza at ball games
Nathan's Hot Dogs - I like my hot dogs kosher, unlike my men, but I know there will be Hebrew National as well

Citi Field Chain Food

Shake Shack - wowzers, that is huge and really a good idea for a ballpark. I just hope the lines are not as long as they are in Mad Sq Park bc Mets fans will miss the game
Blue Smoke - (now a chain bc they are at the Stadium) very good BBQ, but I am just as happy with Bro Jim, especially bc I read they are cooking the food in Manhattan and driving it to Queens.
Nathan's Hot Dogs - same feelings as my Yankee comments

*editors note - Citi Field has a lot of famous Chefs from the Union Sq Group and Tabla, but they are not really chains so I am not going to talk about them on the blog but they have this steak dish that looks delish.
I also refuse to talk about Sushi, because you should not eat Sushi at a game.
I have yet to read anything about Carvel, Dippin Dots or Dunkin Donuts at the stadiums but I have to assume they will still have stuff like that.

Again, I will be updating as I go to the stadiums, to let you know my thoughts as I try everything.

Let me know what you think.

At least food-wise, Rori, my Mets (finally) beat your Yanks.

Jori said...

How many page views do you have on this site? I'm looking to place a buy...

Rori said...

Are you mocking me "Jori"?
Wait till you are begging me for a job on this bad boy.

Brian, you might be right about the food. When you are in town, Ill treat you to a Shake Shack burger, part of my Obama debt.

When I'm back next - June 29 through July 5 - the Mets aren't home. So a Yankee game would certainly suffice.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
