MSG eats, the new stuff on the 100 level

As usual, full review with photos on the blog: http://ramblingsandgamblings.blogspot...

Tonight is the start of the new NBA season. Last April I went to a late-season Knicks game and had an enjoyable time. I haven't seen much mention of the relatively new food options on the board, so thought I'd chime in with my experience. And yes, I did try all the items mentioned below in one night!

Andrew Carmellini's Sausage Boss:
I tried both the cheese bratwurst and the Italian sausage with onions and peppers. I thought the bratwurst was interesting and had more flavor, while the Italian sausage was a bit generic and a bit too sweet.

AquaGrill:
Lobster shrimp roll was the only thing they served. The good thing was that they buttered and toasted the buns to order, but it also meant a longer wait than one might expect for the pre-made filling. At $21, it's fine for what it is but nothing spectacular. If you really have a craving for lobster while you're watching the Knicks or the Rangers, then by all means.

Drew Nieporent's Daily Burger:
By far the best thing I had all night was the cheeseburger with bacon-onion jam. It was juicy, meaty, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. The interior was a perfect pink of loosely packed meat. Not only was this burger tasty in its own right, but I was wowed at the level of cooking for a stadium burger.

I did not feel like paying $15 for a chicken sandwich or getting sushi at a sporting event, so those didn't make the list of things I tried. But I'd certainly be interested if others were to chime in.
