Avocado fries here! Baseball season at Fenway Park is finally upon us. You may notice some of your section-mates enjoying new items from the concession stands. During a recent tour with Mayor Wu on Tuesday, we were introduced to many of the new concession items at Fenway Park for this year.
There’s something for everyone. Although the ballpark is one of the smaller MLB venues capacity wise, they do not fall short on food and drink options. You may have to seek out a specific flavor, but their concession guide clearly walks you through where within the stadium you can find what you are looking for.
The Red Sox concession partner remains Aramark. Over the past week, they previewed new items such as a spicy watermelon margarita and avocado fries. However, if you are interested in a more customized menu, you are now in luck. Gluten-free options are available (like a gluten-free pizza), as are a more expansive selection of regional classics like the lobster roll.
For sandwich options – Aramark has unveiled three different cheesesteak-style subs. A traditional steak and cheese, chicken and cheese, and a chopped sub – essentially an exploded cheeseburger in a long sub roll.
Crab cake sandwiches join the menu at various lobster roll spots. Not to be overshadowed are the traditional favorites. This includes the Fenway frank. Perhaps the most colorful mound of food that will be new this season is the nacho helmet. Uniquely branded in the alternate yellow cap, this is a bucket of nachos topped with cheese, chili, salsa, sour cream, jalapeno peppers and guacamole. It’s designed to feed a family. However, I’m not sure it’s something I would want to share. Even the display item looked finer-licking good.
Finally, it’s only fair to ask, “What is your favorite new Fenway food item?” It’s an easy answer. A maple glazed bacon and cheddar cheese burger topped with caramelized onions is a force to be reckoned with. It is a fastball of flavor sandwiched between buns and pairs perfectly with a draft beer. Speaking of adult beverages…
In addition to the spicy watermelon margarita, there are a few new fun mixed options. For example, the “Secret Garden” (gin/rose based) and the “Lavender Lemon Drop” (vodka/ triple sec based).
Regardless of where you are sitting or what game you are attending, Fenway Park has you covered for concessions. You’re sure to take in a ballgame at a historic baseball landmark, while also indulging in some great new concession items.
