When Citi Field opened in 2009, it quickly established itself as one of the best culinary venues in Major League Baseball, and in New York City, adding to the experience of taking in a Mets game.
The Mets unveiled what will be on the menu for the season at their "New in 2022 at Citi Field" event on Thursday afternoon.
Shake Shack has been a fixture behind center field from the beginning, and it was joined by recent favorites such as Fuku by David Chang, Sweet Chick, Patsy's Pizzeria, and Arancini Bros.
Pat LaFrieda's Chop House is a great destination. Created by one of America's elite butchers, Pat LaFrieda's Chop House brings Mets fans four generations of family tradition. It will have a new menu this season, featuring Lobster Fra Diavolo, Berkshire Pork Chop, NY Strip Steak, Petite Filet, and Surf & Turf. It is located in the Delta Sky360 Club on the Delta Level.
One new addition, thanks to the advent of sports gambling being legalized in New York, is the Caesars Sportsbook at the Metro Grille.
