Meyer Makes a Move on Citi Field

Mr. Met gestures wildly to Danny Meyer.Photo: Getty ImagesWhen we last heard from Danny Meyer, he coyly acknowledged our report of a Shake Shack at Citi Field: “The fascination of doing something in a sports stadium jazzes me,” he said in February. In an interview today, he was more forthright, sort of. Meyer said there are no “sticking points” to set up his Hudson Yards Catering business at Citi Field. He envisions a Shake Shack and a Blue Smoke to feed Mets fans at the retro-nouveau ballpark. (Meyer slipped once and called it Shea Stadium, a mistake we encourage everyone to make.) "We’ve come up with a team that can create a movable feast," Meyer says. "We have two pits at Hudson Yards and as much meat-smoking capacity as we do at Blue Smoke." This time next year, your peanuts and Cracker Jacks may come with Wet-Naps. —Alec Appelbaum
