Yankee Stadium - Bronx, NY

Yankee Stadium

i'll be the first to admit it: i'm a hater.  as much as i was prepared to hate the new yankee stadium, i was completely wowed when i entered.  at first i was taken aback by how much the stadium resembled an upscale shopping mall, but then the most glorious food smells immediately assaulted me, and was a continued theme throughout the evening. the concourses were spacious, and bathrooms the best stadium bathrooms i've ever seen.  on street level, there is a members-only restaurant with a buffet that could've rivaled the brunch buffet at the Rainbow Room. the gift shop is also on this level.  other concession stands i noticed included Daisy Mae's bbq, Tommy Bahama bar with liquor and wine, Hard Rock, steak, Carvel, and italian sausage.  But the clincher for me?  The beer stand has an extensive offering of draft and bottled brews, including gluten-free beer!!  i was as happy as a clam when i saw this, and laughed when my philly friend said, "gluten-free beer at a stadium?  only in ny".  and that is precisely why i love nyc.
