Pre/Post Game Dining Options: We know a trip up to the Bronx wouldn't feel complete without a pre-game drink before heading inside. Fans looking for a few bars with some Bronx Bombers history can grab a cold one at nearby Yankee Tavern or Stan's Sports Bar, both of which are located steps away from the field and feature plenty of memorabilia inside.
If dining outside the ballpark gates is of interest, there's plenty of diverse options in the neighborhood, particularly when it comes to Latin and Caribbean food. The Feeding Tree offers diners Jamaican jerk chicken and curried goat, while Molino Rojo fries up plantains and pig ears. Since prices at ballparks can be higher than a Mark Teixeira home run, there's always a few game day deals worth seeking out. To celebrate the return of baseball, the midtown location of NYY Steak is offering 27 percent off our entire food bill for those of us who brings opening day ticket stubs to the restaurant, which might be the only right way to close out a game now that Mariano Rivera is retired.
