The Food at Yankee Stadium

My sister called me last week to let me know that one of her vendors gave her tix to Yankee Stadium and to ask me to go. Of course I'd go! Even better, they were playing my Phillies!

She said we had good seats only 9 rows behind home plate so I was super excited. Little did I know that we were in the really good seats with access to the Legends Suite Club.

After walking around the stadium a bit and taking it all in, we found our way to the Legends Suite Club. I felt like I was walking into a nightclub, or a VIP area in a casino. After getting our wristbands, we walked into the first bar and restaurant. Opus One at a baseball game?
And the food! Sushi, crab legs, lobster, prime rib, salads, tons of fresh veggies, wings, shrimp, bacon wrapped asparagus, fruit salad, pasta made to order, several types of sausage, sliders, beautiful desserts, and an ice cream bar.

We went downstairs where there was another buffet and bar - this room also had a nightclub feel. It was very dark, cool, and sleek, and there must have been 120 plasma TVs between the two rooms. Oh, that's not including the TVs built into the mirrors in the bathrooms!
After enjoying a few innings of baseball from our amazing seats (look at this view!!)...

...we went inside to enjoy some of the food (all free, included with the ticket).
Now I'm all for eating well, but who eats gazpacho and calamari salad at a baseball game? Wow. Everything was really good, too. It didn't taste like buffet food at all. We both went back for seconds...

And if the two buffets aren't enough for you, you can order off this menu..yes, for free. Again, truffle fries at a baseball game??

If you still have room after all of that food, you can enjoy some of the treats the waitresses were offering during the entire game - ice cream sandwiches, water ice, Cracker Jacks, peanuts, and cotton candy. Just because I could, I grabbed a Hebrew National hot dog in the 10th inning (extra innings make my hungry!).
To top it all off, my Phillies won in the 11th inning. Who could ask for anything more? Thanks for a great day, Stacy!!
