After I was done with the lobster, king crab and the steak from Michael Jordan's (their chef was the 'guest' that game) - I heard an unconfirmed rumor that my picture would replace the one of the Iron Horse.
In Legends , the portions are served by the staff. I usually stay away from most seafood (on the day my daughter was born in 1999 my parents took me to Red Lobster where I actually got a terrible case of food poisoning which required hospitalization. I have never been back.) but when the server asked "Lobster, crab, or shrimp or some of each" I opted for the combo and the plate they gave was embarrassingly large. I thought that was crazy as I wondered how many people couldn't finish a single plate. I do admit I had more than one steak (probably 6 oz filet ) . However I ordered nothing from the in seat menu during the game despite 2 rain delays, but did take some bottled water, and managed to grab a Turkey Hill ice cream bar from the Champions Club.-which was incredibly good.
I even think the Champions Club is much better than the Mets Delta Platinum/Delta Gold seat benefits due to plenty of grab-and-go selections.
What I found strange about Citi Field was that the food in the Hyundai/Champions/Ebbets Club was FAR SUPERIOR to the Delta Lounge, where fans paying Delta Platinum prices are getting a whole lot less while paying a whole lot more.
GordonGecko and I have exchanged opinions on the various high end suites at the different venues (MSG, Met Life, Citi , YS, etc) and we definitely agree that the Delta Lounge at Citi has to be the biggest disappointment of all the venues. If you went to Legends one night and Delta Lounge on the next night, you would be absolutely shocked at the difference.
For the record, Mister B and myself also went to the AUDI CLUB and I would say that was much better, price wise and food quality , than Delta Lounge. I encourage Mister B to voice his opinions on it.
Anyone have any inside info/educated guess on tonight game being played or not? trying to fig out if i should leave work and make the trip down or not. accuweather shows 'light rain/cloudy from 6pm on. Just wanted to see what people here think
These are shots I took from buffet line inside the Hyundai Club last year. Not pictured is the burger/hot dog grill area, snacks or deserts.
I too was surprised they get this setup compared to the Delta Lounge, which is essentially a break room with snacks.
We all know that whatever amenities are / are not offered, are built into the ticket price. Not sure, for example, if a paid meal at the steakhouse in the Citi Delta Club, plus the cost of a DC game ticket and its view of the game, equates to a better experience / better value than a Legends game ticket that includes high-end food.
As for the Hyundai Club, which includes decent, mid-range food, nothing to complain about at all: my head still spins when I picture how much of it that kid consumed last Saturday.
Cleon Jones catches a deep fly ball in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Valley of the Ashes, and a second-grader smiles in front of the black and white television.
Forgetting the Yankees and comparing Mets to Mets, Hyundai Club with it's all inclusive food and seating (which I believe are actually better than Delta Platinum/Gold) must be a far better deal than Delta seats and a fancy dinner at Delta Club.
For instance : tomorrow night's Braves game gets you into Hyundai Club for $130 . Delta Gold $315 and Platinum $487 and Metropolitan Platinum $285. With a food spread like Gary's pictures show, with great seats that are always getting foul balls, it's a 'steal' all things considered.
Just looked up the FST price for Wednesday which is $83 vs. the $130 you quoted. Wow, didn't realize the price spread was so large.
For a direct comparison, I'm reposting these pics from last year in the Delta Lounge. This is the spread available for the most expensive seats in the ballpark.
This was actually massive upgrade from 2015 when the only hot food available was the hot dogs.
I may have to showcase the spread that we get when I go back to the Honda club in a few weeks for an alumni event. They're close to the spread of the Honda Club but it does top it. Plus, I got field access last year with Syndegaard as well. I'm pumped!
He is running the Pittsburgh marathon May 7th, and then decide if he runs NYC in November. When he shows up at In-n-out in California, the workers get nervous.

The hot food came out at 3PM which made for a very late lunch / very early dinner rolled into one; awkward time for a meal. Overeat just to get my money's worth? Nah. Dropped a lot of pounds last year and prefer to leave them where I dropped them...
