has anyone tried the new food at Rogers' centre?

here is the description from the web: A "fresh market" concept that showcases popular food items inspired by Toronto’s diverse neighborhoods, featuring in-house smoked and chopped pork barbecue sandwich, classic gyros, souvlaki, specialty pizzas, carved smoked turkey sandwiches, beef and chicken satay, kung pao wraps, sushi box, barbecue chicken nachos, four specialty salads, and a traditional Mediterranean platter. The market will also feature a self serve beverage area.

hmmm....thoughts?

    i would dare say the food will be as good as.. well what they have always served...bad to really bad...and the value..similar to the one we get with their cable.

      I certainly think it will be a huge improvements over their "Sky Snacks" (are they still called that?) concession stands, but what will be price for let's say a carved smoked turkey sandwich, $12.00? No thanks.

          I was at a game recently and heard afterward that the better outlets with more variety were on the 100 level.

          Last time I was at the game someone I was with had a stir-fry from somewhere on the 100 level. I didn't try it but it looked ok...

            We kept seeing people with the bbq chicken nachos - they looked so good! Sadly, the bbq sauce was super sweet, so the whole thing tasted off.

                We went on dollar hot dog night earlier this year. We split some sweet potato fries from the muddy york food court thing and they were a decent. The carved meat station had a huge line up and looked good, but stuck to cheap hot dogs. I expect to pay through the nose for beer and food at a baseball game but curious to know if there's any hidden gems in there. A lot of it looked like lipstick on a pig Aramark stuff.

                Funny side note. They have this large bar area that featured Sky vodka. There were several rows of martini glasses lined up across the back of the bar. We were tired of beer and thought this was an oasis and had no line ups! It was, they didn't sell martinis but offered us Bud Light Lime. Yuck!

                Was at the Rogers' Centre yesterday, and found the "fresh market". Its called Muddy Yorks, and is on the 100 level, by the right outfield.
                I had a pulled pork sandwich (dry, not nearly enough sauce) which came with cole slaw and potato salad (not bad)...my SO had a noodle stirfry with shrimp. The stirfry tasted all right, I guess... but the shrimp were mushy... (very off-putting)
                There were a lot of other things to choose from though, perhaps we made poor choices. The salad case had some sushi and salads (asian, greek, caesar), which both actually looked okay. The Mediterranean platter was just 2 pitas with some hummus and a scoop of Tabouli. I think it cost 8.95.
                Obviously, everything is overpriced.

                  Was at the baseball game last night. The food is HORRID! And coming from someone who loves fast food, especially the classics like hot dogs at the ball park, this is a bold statement. Had a burger from the 100 level (can't remember where) and it was overpriced, seemingly cooked long before the first inning given its hockey puck consistency, and served on the stalest bun I have ever had. I didn't even want my daughter to eat it is was so gross; I thought she would get sick.

                  The Rogers centre better think about kicking it up a little; the food is gross and even worse, grossly over-priced. Our two burgers, two drinks, and one fries cost up almost $30. Can we somehow get Gordon Ramsay's kitchen nightmares here?

                    I went today w/ some friends and had some wings from the Quaker Steak & Lube. The wings w/ garlic sauce were good, the onion rings were a little too bready for my taste, but my wife liked them. Washed it down w/ an Alexander Keith's red. All-in-all, the food was perfectly fine and probably much better than the standard hotdog fair. I didn't try the footlong hotdogs though.
