Move Over, Mets: Yankee Stadium Gets Lobel’s Sandwiches and Johnny Rockets

When word got out that Citi Field would get its own Shake Shack, we predicted that Yankee Stadium would beef up its own food offerings. Sure enough, Diner’s Journal reports that when the stadium opens on April 3, there will be a mini Lobel’s with “a cart, the Triple Play Grill, selling sandwiches of freshly sliced Lobel dry-aged prime rib ($15), as well as beef and chicken sliders.” The outlet will also have “a window where butchers can be seen cutting dry-aged strip loins for restaurants in the stadium’s expensive sections.” And though the box seats may have access to Lobel’s strip steaks, les miserables won’t even need tickets to access a new Hard Rock Café; there will be an entrance at street level.

But there’s more: Other new concessions include: “Boar’s Head Deli, Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, Johnny Rockets, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Asian Noodle Bowl, Latin Corner, with Cuban sandwiches, and a sushi station run by Soy Kitchen of the Bronx.” (And all that is in addition to chains like Nathan’s Famous, Famiglia Pizza, and Carvel). Yankees deserve a big wave for getting into the food game — but these offerings just don’t stack up to Citi Field.
