One of the more popular spots at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center is the Heineken House.
Located on top of the food courts with the entrance by Court 17, it’s a relaxed dining experience in a recreational atmosphere.
And much like the past few years, tennis goers enjoyed the backyard setting with a photo booth, swing, beanbag toss and lounge booths, complete with couches and televisions.
More importantly, the casual dining options give fans a chance to enjoy some of the better Open options.
The Lobster Roll ($19.00) features a meaty lobster salad on a split top roll, served with coleslaw, while the Turkey Panini ($10.50) is a pressed turkey sandwich with pepper jack cheese, served with a pickle.
New this year there are two Paninis from Pat LeFrieda’s. The Country Ham and Bree Panino ($14.00) features a mortadella, pineapple mango chutney and a peppadew dijionaise. This delicious sandwich hit the spot with just the right amount of seasoning.
There’s also Chicken Breast Panino ($13.00) with provolone, arugula, spicy mayo with sundried tomatoes. The large chicken portion made this sandwich a winner. The meat was tender and not overdone. Too many times you find sandwiches that are poorly made. This is not one of one of them.
To start you can get kettle chips and a shrimp cocktail for an appetizer.
And of course, it wouldn’t be the Heineken House without a brew or two. There’s regular Heineken and Heineken Light. They also have the Strongbow hard cider.
There you have it. If you are visiting the Open over the next two weeks, visit the Heineken House. You won’t be disappointed.
