NEW YORK (CBS 2) — As day one of the US Open started Monday, CBS 2′s Tony Tantillo got a look at the food being served up at the concession stands in Flushing.
It’s no small feat feeding the more than 700,000 people that will come through the gates over the next 2 weeks, but between the five restaurants and 50 concession stands, fans will have plenty to chose from.
The hungry crowds will consume more than 250,000 burgers and hot dogs, 27,000 pounds of tomatoes, and four and a half tons of crab and lobster — and there are plenty of gourmet options as well.
A new restaurant fans may want to check out this year is the Cabanas at the overlook. It is a food and tennis lover’s oasis that features creative small plates in a luxurious atmosphere, Tantillo reports.
So whether you’re watching players hold serve, or are being served a great meal or snack everyone can go home a winner at the US Open.
