New Nats Park concessions

I mentioned on Tuesday that we would be learning more about Nats Park concessions this week, and the news came on Wednesday, first via Going Out Gurus and later in a Nats press release. “Acclaimed New York restaurateur Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group” will be bringing four new “concepts” to Nats Park.

Here’s how the press release describes them: “mouthwatering real pit barbecue from Blue Smoke, addictive Belgian-style fries and dipping sauces at Box Frites, authentic Mexican food and flavors at El Verano Taqueria, and ShackBurgers, hot dogs and frozen custard from the popular Shake Shack.”

Nats Park is the second baseball stadium to offer these choices, joining CitiField, which lists them under its “Taste of the City” options. But what’s lost in local originality is offset by Kansas City Spare Ribs, Chicken Mole Pipian, Chile-Marinated Skirt Steak and thick-cut Idaho potatoes, presumably.

The new stands will be on the Miller Lite Scoreboard Walk; the press release says they will open in “late Spring,” and that the company signed a “multi-year” deal to be in the stadium.
