Although baseball season starts in April, summer has the bulk of the scheduled games and is the real heart of the season. The Yankees are one of New York State’s beloved teams with a long history. While a traditionalist may opt for a classic hot dog and shell-on peanuts, there are so many interesting dining options available when you’re at the stadium watching a game. Here are some of the new Yankee Stadium eats that can be enjoyed this season:
Benihana: Benihana, found in section 127, has been serving up their hibachi, yakisoba, and poke bowls to fans since 2019. However, this season they have introduced a spicy tuna sushi burrito and a spicy salmon sushi burrito.
City Winery Wine Bar: City Winery opened at Yankee Stadium in 2018 and was the first wine bar. Located in Section 105, the restaurant has debuted two new menu items this season. Fans can pick up a GOAT Burger (a steakhouse elite burger topped with Drunken Goat Cheese, a balsamic fig spread and arugula) and a lemon-herb marinated Rotisserie chicken served with roasted potatoes or French fries.
