There is so much more than just baseball at Yankee Stadium that makes it even more of a destination for fans, families and all.
I was recently invited to a media tour of Yankee Stadium’s new fan-friendly social gathering locations and a tasting of its new 2017 food line-up.
The New York Yankees unveiled numerous new exciting social gathering spaces and concession options, which will be available for all Yankees fans to enjoy throughout the 2017 season, beginning with the Yankees’ home opener on Monday, April 10 vs. the Tampa Bay Rays.
We visited the Stadium’s first ever children’s zone — the Sunrun Kids Clubhouse located on the 300 Level in right field. Shaped like a mini baseball field with a soft artificial surface, the 2,850-square-foot area is located on the 300 Level in right field and outfitted with Yankees-themed playground equipment, including oversized baseballs, bases and baseball cards, a 6-foot-high replica World Series trophy and interactive exhibits. Parents can join their children on the play area or choose to oversee them from a nearby dugout.
The Masterpass Batter’s Eye Deck in centerfield offers a sweeping view of the entire Stadium. This outdoor gathering space will feature craft beers, cocktails and a large selection of food options. Some of the food options offered here are scrumptious sandwiches such as the “Caramelized Onion French Dip Sandwich”
Frank’s Red Hot Terrace (overlooking the visitors bullpen in left field) and the Toyota Terrace (overlooking the Yankees bullpen in right field) are open-air social gathering areas on the 100 Level. Each terrace features its own specialty food and drink options. One can get fresh Hot Baos (Chinese Buns) with meat and veggie options.
You can also get the popular “Yankee Dingers” which are grilled custom-ground hand-smashed mini-burgers with shaved white onions and French’s yellow mustard placed on a steamed potato bun.
At Lobel’s in (Section 134), get the signature Lobel’s USDA Prime Steak Sandwich. Additionally, Lobel’s USDA Prime Steak-Topped Fries are being reintroduced this year, featuring strips of USDA prime strip steak served over deep-fried russet potato wedges and smothered in homemade gravy.
The Budweiser Party Decks located in Sections 311 and 328, Budweiser Party Decks feature shaded stand-alone bar areas serving beer, cocktails and food where one can enjoy sweeping views of the field and game action.
Mighty Quinn’s BBQ features fan-favorite items from their New York City-based restaurants. Their menu features only naturally raised, slow-smoked meats to give guests an authentic BBQ experience.
Bareburger is known for its commitment to using fresh, organic, responsible and sustainable ingredients, free of pesticides and GMOs. Bareburger ensures there are food options for every fan here at Yankee Stadium.
The new AT&T Sports Lounge featuring DirecTV service at Section 134 on the Field Level includes a full bar with craft beers and cocktails.
All of these new enhancements make Yankee Stadium even more of a destination than ever before.
