Best Thing We Ate: Pat LaFrieda's Steak Sandwich at Citi Field

By Stefanie Tuder  |  July 30, 2013

It's very tempting to make a beeline for Shake Shack, but the best thing we ate at Citi Field was just one stand down: the Pat LaFrieda steak sandwich. LaFrieda serves up top-quality meat at just about everywhere you go for steak or a burger in this city, so it's no surprise their own offering is excellent. The homegrown sandwich boasts tender, medium rare filet mignon served au jus with caramelized onions and melted monterey jack cheese on a toasted baguette - basically French onion soup on a sandwich with steak. While it may be a bit pricey for stadium food at $15, this thing is huge and will keep you full all nine innings, provided you supplement with beer, of course.
