It’s baseball time again. When I think Braves, I think dogs…hot dogs that is. For my family and me, when we go to the ballpark (and with a houseful of boys, that’s where I often end up) we find baseball and hot dogs to be the perfect pairing. While I admit Turner Field has its bbq and tacos, they’re still down-to-earth fare. But, that isn’t so all over the nation. Stadium food is going upscale, way upscale.
San Diego has its beloved fish tacos, Seattle, its sushi…and for the truly daring, Rocky Mountain “oysters” at Coors Field. Elsewhere you can chow on Ghirardelli hot-fudge sundaes, ahi tuna and 40-clove garlic chicken sandwiches and ribs. Well-known food restaurateur, Danny Meyer of New York’s Union Square Café and Gramercy Tavern, is catering at the Met’s new Citi Field, offering pulled pork on brioche buns and chipotle chicken wings.
When you go to watch America’s favorite pastime what do you want to eat? Is it a dog or do you want something more unusual? What is the best (or worst) thing you’ve eaten while watching a ball game?
