For a stadium steeped in tradition, you’d think Fenway park would be a classic light beer and footlong hot dog type park. However, as we have seen across the MLB, more stadiums are now adding obscure and local culinary flare to their concessions. When the Sox open the season on April 3rd against the Pittsburgh Pirates, fans will have some delightful new options.
Lobster Poutine Stak / Aramark Sports
When you think Boston, you think seafood and more so lobster. The new Lobster Poutine Stak does not disappoint with steak fries piled high and covered with fresh lobster meat, cheese curds, bisque, and chives. Poutine is a traditional Canadian dish that is becoming a popular menu item nationwide. This Sammy substitutes bisque for gravy and adds a Boston twist with fresh lobster meat.
Lobster Melt / Aramark Sports
They see your lobster and raise you another with the new Lobster Melt. This gourmet style grilled cheese will provide comfort on brisk New England nights. The melt features fresh, steamed Yankee Lobster Co. lobster with melted Muenster cheese and sliced tomato. Gourmet grilled cheese is always a fan favorite, but add in some melted cheese and fresh lobster, this one has mouths watering already.
Surf & Turf Kebob / Aramark Sports
We may have saved the best for last in this case. Fenway is rolling out a Surf and Turf Kebab, which combines skewered shrimp, marinated steak and fresh green and red peppers on a roll. This delightful dish may be a foot long, but it is no hot dog. This new England style twist on an American BBQ standard is sure to turn heads this year.
As part of Aramark’s Healthy for Life 20 By 20 initiative, and ongoing commitment to providing fans with greater variety, choice, and access to healthier menu options, Aramark continues to expand “better-for-you” options throughout the ballparks it serves. They are bringing that theme to Fenway through the new Fenway Farms. The rooftop farm at Fenway Park will provide fresh produce to throughout the ballpark. Their aim is to grow 7,500 pounds of organic produce this season, with different seasonal offerings in concessions at the new, make your own, fresh salad and fruit bar. This one of a kind feature is just another fantastic addition to the already one of kind experience that is Fenway Park.
