  • Citi Field Tickets & Concessions

    For the sake of those who wish to discuss Citi Field for its architecture, aesthetics, and whatnot in the "Citi Field" thread, this will be the place to discuss tickets, prices, packages, plans, seating views, concessions, etc.

    And before anyone speaks up about the thread which used to be here for that purpose, it's duly noted. This is Point Zero for all new discussion.

    Has anyone tried the hot pastrami on rye stand yet? It is behind the 130's sections on the field level. I had it for the first time last week and enjoyed it very much. My next stop is the reuben from the Caesar's club next week.

      I was at the double header yesterday and tried the new fried chicken sandwich from Blue Smoke in the first game. I liked it though the bread and lettuce were the weak spot. I also had my first Shake Shack double in the second game of the doubleheader. I also got a free Pepsi for signing up to be a designated driver. Also, the corndog and empanada from Nathan's are small and overpriced.
      The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

        I had the pastrami yesterday and it was the highlight of the day. The carver dude took a long time but seemed like nice guy. Probably, he was poorly trained and thank god he did not slice his fingers.

          Had the crab cake sandwich and popcorn shrimp from Catch of the Day the other night. Very tasty. The crab cake is overpriced at $15 but the shrimp at $10.50 is reasonable (relatively speaking).

            I haven't had the stand-based pastrami sandwhich yet, but I had the CC Reuben at the rainout on Tuesday. Really good. Especially since they didn't make it with Russian dressing, I like it with mustard, and Gold's is a good mustard.

            Let us know if there's any qualitative difference between the two!

              Blue Smoke re-introduced their Chipotle Wings. They had them two years ago, took them off the menu last year, and then decided to bring them back. I like their wings, so I'm glad they did this.

                Actually that "very tasty" Crab cake and popcorn shrimp from Catch of last year cost you over 100 dollars per person when you throw in price of tickets, parking and gas. What it really comes down to is, since the team sucks so bad and you can't sit there and watch them play, the tickets and parking are the coverage charge for the privilege of dining at Chez Wilpon. Citi Field is basically the equivalent to that restaurant on the water or the one with a spectacular view that charges a fortune even though the food is mediocre but you still go for the ambiance.


                Now that I think about it, Citi Field should qualify as a restaurant. So what I'm thinking is perhaps since the place hasn't been doing well since it opened up, we could get Gordon Ramsey to come in and fix the place up! I could only imagine the horrified look on is face when he sees all those tacky ads slapped up all around Chez Wilpon. Not exactly an inviting experience for such a high class restaurant. Yes?

                  I think we all get that you don't care for the Mets product nowadays - I have no problem with that. That's your decision. But deriding other people's choice to attend games is really disrespectful. There are people on this forum, myself included, who still enjoy attending games despite the poor performance by the team. You probably view us with disdain - so be it. I enjoy the experience and no one, particularly you, should feel qualified to tell me how to spend my money.

                    mmmmm Lenny's!!! Love that commercial! Ha Ha I grew up in Huntington and the Lenny's Clam Bar was right around the corner from where I lived. Remember going there all the time with my parents. But the one in Huntington has been gone for at least 25 years, not sure if the others are still around? And yes I'm sure the catch of the day was much better there than the overpriced crap of the day that they're peddling at Citi Field.

                      I have no problems with you going to the games, actually I'm happy that you are going because I love baseball too. But it should be about baseball, not "tasty crab cakes." When did talk about baseball become synonymous with "fine" dining? I missed that memo. But I do know that owners like the Wilpons jack up ticket prices because of all the extra amenities that are at ballparks nowadays. That kills it for fans like me who just want to see baseball and are happy with a hot dog and a beer. So as long as you keep on raving about "tasty crab cakes," owners will continue to fill the parks up with all of these special items which in turn jacks up the ticket prices for fans who prefer not to take out loans just want to watch a baseball game. Understand?
                      1. So just get a dog and a beer, no one forces you to buy tasty crab cakes. I don't
                      2. Some of the best seats in the house are in the second cheapest price level. Plus 504 and 524 are not that bad.
                      3. Team owners are going to shoot the prices as high as they feel they can to make as much money as they can. And when they miss ( like the Mets did ) the secondary market and ticket specials create a price correction. That's how capitalism works.
                      4. I don't see the connection between on concourse upscale food concessions and higher ticket prices. Shoving Delta Club into the stratosphere is a different story.
                      5. Since the day NYS and Citi opened seats for all but a few games are available below face.

                        My sentiments exactly. As for #4, the Nats are putting in a Shake Shack, Blue Smoke, Taqueria and a Box Frites this season. I'm guessing that their food prices will all be comparable to Citi Field (maybe slightly cheaper than CF) but I doubt if their ticket prices will go up significantly as a result.

                          I know that there had been a discussion on the other thread about SCOREBIG.COM, i was wondering if anyone had tried doing it, how it worked and what the lowest prices anyone ever got for the expensive seats was

                            I won a pair of Baseline box to the second home game of the year for $39.54 all in. At the time I bid that was just slightly less than the pair would have run on SH.

                            Paper seats were Fedexed overnight, face value $7.30 each. posted in the other forum. Scorebig said if game rained out or cancelled they would make it right.

                            I had some bids rejected @ 80-90% StubHub so I don't know how low they are willing to go.

                              Hand-carved? That's an excellent sign right there. If it's a good quality, home-cured pastrami and not commercial, then it'll be a winner. Katz's Deli, the king of pastrami, is one of the few, if not only, delis remaining that hand carves their pastrami and corned beef (against the grain) instead of using a slicing machine. 100x tenderer this way.
