New At Citi Field: Mets Unveil Award-Winning Dining Options


All Photos by Jason Schott.

The Mets held their New In 24 event at Citi Field on Thursday, and they unveiled the new dining options that fans will find at the park on Opening Day and throughout the season.

Citi Field was voted the #1 Best Stadium Food in 2023 by USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice Awards. In addition, it is one of the best culinary destinations in New York City as it was honored as the #1 Best Ballpark Food in 2024.

The Mets gave their fans the chance to vote to bring back a #CitiFieldEats favorite of the past for the 2024 season. The choice was Keith's Grill, which will feature the popular Mex Burger and 108 Burger, which is described in full in the guide to what you will find at the ballpark.

Taste of Queens proved to be a popular feature when it debuted last season, as it highlights and provides exposure for local small businesses. This off-season, the Mets have local Queens-based small businesses the chance to apply and tell the team why they should be featured at the portable. Three vendors were selected, and you will find them in the dining guide.

The Mets open the season this Thursday, March 28 against the Milwaukee Brewers, in the first game of a three-game weekend series. The Detroit Tigers come in from April 1-3.
