Danny Meyer signing on, the blow was softened a bit.) I'm hoping that they will still have room for some of my favorites though.
I'm not the biggest fan of stadium food. It's overpriced, greasy, and tastes like ass. I'd rather bring a sandwich and drink beer, preferably Sam Adams. Usually the sandwich would come from some outside deli, if I'm lucky Sandwich Kings or Cherry Valley, so Mama's of Corona and their outpost never registered with any member of my fam. But when it did, I was excited. No more last minute dashes into delis, clock ticking because you may miss the train and the first inning. I've since learned the exact whereabouts of the stand, but have yet to make it early enough to the store at field level. I have at least one more shot to do so. The mezzanine outpost, behind section 11, carries two sandwiches, the Mama's Special (aka Italian) and a Turkey with either Swiss or American. Both are $9.75, pretty steep, but the same as what, two hot dogs? I don't know the prices of anything else at Shea, except for beer ($8) and helmet cups ($5).
Please do not take away Mama's or Carvel.
Truth be told, I don't think I'm going to wait on an hour long line for Shake Shack or Blue Smoke there. I'm paying money to watch David (and the Mets), not wait for a hamburger.
