I saw this article today, and it made me intensly jealous. With Danny Meyer running the some of the food concessions at the new Shea maybe there is a reason to set foot in the there.

That being said has anybody seen anything about what the Yankees are going to do with the food concessions in their new stadium?

    Cpalms, don't know about the food concessions per se, but at a recent Yankee game they were already touting a new 'upscale' steakhouse (I forget the name) and a Hard Rock Cafe...anything Danny Meyer sounds good to me though. Good for Shea and the Mets...

      I'm glad that I'm a Met fan. Apparently, some people have issues with it, saying it will raise the price of tickets and the concession food prices will be astronomical. But I'd rather pay an extra few dollars for something decent then pay the already super high prices for subpar food.

        unfortunely, I think it is pretty clear that neither ballpark is catering to families on a budget.

          You're right. The tickets alone can cost a whole bundle. So I feel that spending an extra five bucks or whatever for a burger isn't that much considering the price of the tickets. I tried to get Yankees/Sox tickets last weekend. Of course, they were sold out and my only option was to go through a "scalper." Decent seats were hundreds of dollars with the best seats going for over $1500! I decided to watch it at home.

      Yeah, it's going to be a steak house and a hard rock cafe.
      Guess I'll continue to enjoy the excellent Caribbean food at the Feeding Tree on Gerard Ave., a three minute walk from gate 2.

        Hard Rock Cafe??? ugh, come on...that sucks.....you think they would try to do something like Gray's Papaya and Katz Deli concession...oh man, they're are so many great NYC centric options if they would only be a little creative....

        From the NY Times article -

        “I’ve known Danny a long time and he’s tops in what he does,” said Jeff Wilpon, an owner of the Mets. “He also loves the Mets.”

        Isn't Jeffrey Chodorow a huge Yankee fan? It just seems like it *should* be true.

            I second that, please keep Chod away from Yankee Stadium.

              Agree, Chodorow's restaurant endeavors have been wildly erratic...
              Does anybody realize that Yankee Stadium has had an Arthur Ave. kiosk hidden in the boonies of the place? Problem is you're paying almost twice as much for a sandwich as you would right on Arthur Ave....I usually prefer to buy what I want outside and tailgate, or bring it in a plastic see-thru bag to enjoy during the game...I feel no guilt about not supporting all these super athletes out there on the field...

                The Mike's deli stand at the Stadium is not in the boonies, its right behind home plate on the club level. It couldn't be centrally located. Its right next to the Carl's cheesesteak stand. Both of these pale in comparison to the originals but compared to what else is available, they are quite good.

                  carl's, while not as good as the original, is a great option if you are sitting close enough to their location. I wonder if they will move with the yanks to the new stadium.

                    if you're not way in left or right field, it's pretty easy to swing by Carl's or Mike's Deli before heading to your seats given their central location and proximity to escalators.

                    Hard Rock Cafe and Steakhouse confirmed for new Yankee Stadium:
