There's a great panini place that opens two hours before every home game.. great panini, guacamole, and a nice beer selection.. called the Press Cafe.. it's half a block from the stadium, if you're coming from the train walk north underneath the tracks, when you get to the north end of the stadium, make a left on that block and walk half a block- on the north side of the street, it has a guiness sign out in front.. they pack stuff up to go..

I understand that when the 'new' Yankee Stadium is built the on-site food options will be quite extensive.

Not sure if that also means an improvement in terms of quality...

If the Yankee organization decides to renew its contract with its current concessionaire (most likely they will), presently in charge of ALL food and beverage operations at the stadium, i'm afraid we won't see much change happening.

Despite its 4 or 5 restaurant type facilites, numerous food courts and food stands (all managed by the same company), the general consensus remains that from hot dogs to shrimp cocktails, food literaly sucks. It is absurdly overpriced too. Based on my experiences at both Yankee and Shea stadiums, it is hard to expect much being that in these types of venues, a greater emphasis is put on high-volume rather than on high-quality.

I was taken here a couple of years ago and I assume it is still there. It is a block up (towards the Grand Concourse) from the McDonalds which is under the subway tracks. Not bad Jamaican food, I had the goat curried goat because it was recommended.

My boyfriend and I are going to the Yankee/Red Sox game on Wednesday, May 10th and are looking for someplace in the area to grab an early dinner.

Pretty much open to anything.

Thanks in advance!

Roberto's - you need look no further.

You can go to Robertos, if you want top Italian food, or if its early enough you can eat at the Arthur Avenue Retail Market at Mike's Deli and have incredible antipasto and Italian subs to die for, until about 4-ish. If its a day game you might be better off doing that because Robertos opens at 5 and you want to get there as early as possible, it gets very busy at around 6:30.

An alternative to Robertos is Umberto's Clam House, also on Arthur Ave.

I'm a big fan of Roberto's but really not that close to the Stadium as it is in the Arthur Avenue section of the Bronx.

We've been going regularly to The Feeding Tree, a West Indian restaurant 1 1/2 block from the stadium on Gerard by 161st. Jamaican Patties, Jerk Chicken, Oxtails and Red Stripe beers.

That sounds like a plan, even if you don't care much for the Yankees.

You shouldn't eat grouse and woodcock, venison, a quail and dove pate, abalone and oysters, caviar, calf sweetbreads, kidneys, liver, and ducks all during the same week with several cases of wine. That's a health tip.

the only two places i've found within walking distance of the stadium are the Feeding Tree and Press Cafe..

feeding tree is detailed below, Press Cafe is found by walking north under the Elevated train tracks, make the first left you can (basically equal with the north side of the stadium) and you'll see a Guiness sign half a block in, on the North Side of the street.. CitySearch or something like that can probably tell you the exact address..

Open's a few hours before every home game, closes at some point during or after the game.. good beer selection, nice panini selection, salads, sometimes seasonal plates, good guacamole you can bring into the game with you if you're into it..

Thanks for the replys - keep them coming!

The game is at 7:00 but we will be getting there around 4.

Also, I googled Umberto's and it says it is on Mulberry - is this the same one?

No, different place. The Umberto's you googled is in Little Italy in Manhattan. The one Jason mentioned is in the Bronx - 15-20 minutes from stadium.

I second The Feeding Tree. Good food and you can't beat the location.

16 oz Heinekin Beer: $8.75

French Fries: $5.00

Cotton Candy: $4.00

Dinner for 4 at The Feeding Tree with gratuity $50.00.
