Whether or not you’re a baseball fan, you have to admit that summer + ballparks + great food is one of the best combinations anyone could ever ask for!
We got a preview of the newest menu items that will be available at Yankee Stadium during the 2019 season. Our tasty outing to Yankee Stadium included a stadium tour complete with panoramic views, access to the VIP areas, as well as—of course—some delectable game day food.
Turns out that the Yankees are really upping the ante this year with some incredible offerings, many of which you would hardly expect to find at a ballpark. We had the opportunity to hear Yankees Senior Executive Chef, Matt Gibson, discuss the importance of inclusivity at the stadium, which was music to our ears (and the ears of many Yankees fans with particular diets). He highlighted how his team is working to provide new options for everyone, from the gluten-free to the vegan fan, the vegetarians and, of course, those who are just looking to indulge during their day at the ballgame. (Game Day = Cheat Day in our books 100% of the time).
