Bring your appetite to Yankee Stadium this season. (And when you’re there, don’t open those calorie counter apps on your phones.)
The Yankees have a feast of new food items available in 2016, hightlighted by the “Tape Measure Cheesesteak.”
The two-foot sandwich is served with a choice of white American cheese or Cheez Whiz on a sub roll with the option of peppers and/or onions. This shareable item is available at Carl’s Steaks at Section 107 of Yankee Stadium.
The “Triple Play” Stand in Section 115 has three new burgers: the “Barnyard Wedding,” the “G.O.A.T Burger” and the “Double-Double.”
The “G.O.A.T (Greatest of All Time) Burger” is loaded with custom blended-beef, topped with bacon, pastrami, American cheese and “G.O.A.T.” sauce.
The “Barnyard Wedding” has the same custom blended-beef but with a fried chicken cutlet, hash browns, BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese.
The “Double-Double” is unlike a traditional double cheeseberger. Two grilled cheese sandwiches serve as the buns and in addition to two beef burgers, there are onion rings and more American cheese in between.
Other new food items include brisket and bacon grilled cheese, buffalo chicken quesadillas, four-cheese grilled cheese, French onion grilled cheese, Jim Beam chicken sandwich and Thai chicken fingers.
The Yankees also will have two new merchandise stands in the Great Hall: The Comic Cart and The Golf Cart.
The Comic Cart features Star Wars and Marvel products with the famed interlocking NY logo. Products include headwear, apparel and other novelty items.
The Golf Cart will sell Yankees golf apparel and accessories, including head covers, markers, tees and golf balls.
