There are so many things to say about the new stadium: it's clean, you can watch the game from the concessions, the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, the Fanwalk, the leg room. I had a lot of memories at Shea, tears were shed during my last game there, but within 15 minutes in the new Shea, I am in love with the new stadium. Mainly, it's for the leg room. But this is a food blog, so forget all that, we need to discuss the food options.
Shake Shack. True to Shake Shack form, it had the longest line, but unlike the other two, you can have someone go get you other food and you can eat that on line.
El Verano Taqueria, across the way from Shake Shack/Blue Smoke. Delicious, especially with the tomatillo chipotle salsa poured all over it. It's only mildly spicy, which is great for me.
Brooklyn Brewery beer! I'm saving the head-to-head taste test for warmer weather, stay tuned.
Box Frites. This is the large, and both sizes come with a free sauce. We chose smoked bacon, blue cheese, and chipotle ketchup. I preferred the smoked bacon, while Brownie downed the ketchup. I think she loved how the spicy and sweet combo played off the saltiness of the fries. And they were some crispy, fresh, perfect frites.
Mama's of Corona among others.
to the celebrities, but come on, $6! I have a problem with that.
All in all, the food cannot be beat, I don't care what celebrity chefs that other New York team picks up, we have Shake Shack and Blue Smoke! And it's available to EVERYONE, not a select few with good seats. For a true detailed reviews with most of the food available, click here and here.
