This past week, I attended 5 Mets games with my husband and daughter and sampled a wide variety of the different foods available at the stadium. Here's a review:
Blue Smoke - the star here was the wonderfully tender and moist pulled pork on a brioche (extra delicious dipped into a side of barbecue sauce) (highly recommended), ribs were OK as were the fries.
Shake Shack - moist, perfectly cooked burger with a tasty sauce (surprisingly delicious considering the mass production required at the stadium) (recommended), and good milkshakes
Box Frites - OK fries with sauces that were not very interesting. Far better fries were found at Nathan's.
Nathan's - Hot dogs always good but this year they have corn dogs - which my daughter loved and we're starting to do a corn dog count for the year (in addition to the Mets wins and losses!)
Seafood area - (I can't remember the name but it is back behind center field) - quite good fried flounder sandwich. The Long Island corn and clam chowder was slighty sweet and contained some ham as well (certainly not the best chowder that I've had but good for a cold night).
Acela Club - We had brunch here prior to a weekend game. Starters from the "Market Table" were quite good including the charcuterie table with excellent prosciutto, salami, tomato salad and buffalo mozarella. The bread selection included some whole grain, brick oven, raisin walnut among others and all was tasty. In addition, there were bagels with good smoked salmon and sable (although the presentation could have been better for the latter). A fruit platter, muffins, croissants, and a cheese platter were all delicious. The hot market table selections were not as appetizing. For our main courses, we had a delicious beef brisket sandwich which was served on an onion brioche type bun and accompanied by delicious sweet potato fries. (Highly recommended). The smoked ribs were tasty albeit a little chewy but they were accompanied by dense, overly chewy and quite spicy corn bread and tasteless cole slaw. The roasted chicken with chimichurri sauce was tender.
I'd be interested in hearing other people's food experiences at Citi Field. Thanks and LETS GO METS!!!!!
