After seeing what the Yankees will be cooking up this season, you won’t need to be much of a sports fan to want to come to the stadium. You’ll just need to be more of a food fan, Dias reported.
The senior executive chef told Dias his team spends the entire off season going around and seeing what’s new, then bringing it to Yankee fans.

Some of the new menu items include Mighty Quinn’s MQ rib sandwich and 1/2 rack of baby back ribs, Bareburger’s vegan “Impossible burger” and vegan guacamole bites. Then there’s Big Mozz’s mozzarella sticks and Buffalo Wild Wings traditional wings and sauces. The stadium’s newest signature go-to is the crispy maple chicken sandwich.
“All of this that is being showcased today is available to every single fan that walks in, so if you’re a normal ball park goer, we have that. We also have vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, kosher. Our goal is for every fan to feed themselves,” said senior executive chef Matthew Gibson.MORE NEWS: Police: Man Stabbed In Head With Machete After Argument At Walmart In Kearny, N.J.
