Since they opened Citi Field in 2009, the Mets have always been on the cutting edge of food selection throughout their stadium. Before they were opened throughout the country the Mets boasted one of the only Shake Shacks outside of Madison Square Park.
And then a few years later the club teamed up with Pat LaFrieda with his steak sandwich, which proved to be so popular the US Tennis Open brought it across the street to its higher end customers.
So much like the way the club has always been built on pitching, the stadium has been built on food and there’s a high bar set at Citi.
And apparently, the Mets are up for the task with the arrival of DO, a very popular cookie dough shop located in Greenwich Village. According to its website, patrons lineup for hours to try the raw cookie dough that uses pasteurized instead of raw eggs, which makes the dough safe for consumption.
Much like the way the Shake Shack had very long lines when Citi opened, DO should have the same popular effect.
Also, coming in this year is the BASH burger, and Nicoletta, as well as old favorites like Mama’s of Corona, Fuku, and Rao’s to go with the Shake Shack and Pat LaFrieda’s.
There aren’t many changes in the stadium this season. The Mets though have a few new features going into Year 9 of its home.
A Jim Beam bar will be open in center field, as well as a season ticket holder lounge in the outfield. The Bud Light party deck is expanding with a lounge open to all fans.
Late last season the left field restaurant was taken over by Porsche and was renamed the Porsche Grille.
The Mets say there will be over one million promotional items given to fans this season with Free Shirt Friday’s returning along with a Matt Harvey gnome giveaway. On July 22, the Mets teamed up with Marvel Entertainment to have a Noah Syndergaard as Thor bobble head, which is the first-time Marvel allowed one of their characters licensed by Major League Baseball.
The season begins of April 3 and tickets for all home games are on sale now.
