You gotta believe the food at this place is amazin’.
The Mets unveiled the latest culinary offerings for the 2018 season at Citi Field on Thursday, featuring some of the hottest new prospects in the city and a lot more than peanuts and Cracker Jacks. Newbies include a specialist in sweet, Hong Kong-style waffles topped with ice cream, a holiday market hawker of baked Wisconsin cheese and a spinoff of a trendy fried chicken and waffles chain.
Celebrity chef Michael White’s Nicoletta pizzeria and edible, raw cookie dough pioneer DŌ return for a second year with new pies and flavors.
Of course, stalwarts such as Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group’s Shake Shack and El Verano Taqueria remain alongside Fuku, David Chang’s fried chicken sandwich shop, Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar, and a contingent from the Queens deli Leo’s Latticini, Mama’s of Corona. Many of the old standbys, not to be outdone by newcomers, are trotting out some fresh menu items themselves.
Here are the stadium’s edible highlights, starting off with the new options for the 2018 season.
