The House That Ruth Built, the new Yankee Stadium is not—but the park aims to channel Yankee greats of the past. For a genuine taste of the Bronx, go to field-level section 127 for a sandwich from Mike’s Arthur Avenue Italian Deli, like the light-and-zesty eggplant parm. Other options: Lobel’s of New York and Brother Jimmy’s BBQ. But if you’re in one of the 4,000 premium seats (which run as much as $1,250 a pop), you’ll have access to the Legends Suite Club—where celeb chefs including Masaharu Morimoto and April Bloomfield (the Spotted Pig) will make guest cooking appearances. Duck into Tommy Bahama’s Bar for a “Mo”jito—a blend of rum, club soda, sugar, mint, and fresh lime juice—named for the Bombers’ longtime closer, Mariano Rivera.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
