Friday Feast: Legends Suite Club at Yankee Stadium

I recently had the incredible opportunity to attend a Yankees game in the Legends Suite.  I had heard about this, but wasn’t prepared for what was in store!

I got an IM from B at about 10:00 am on Thursday that he had got 2 tickets to the Yankee game that night from work.  I’m not a huge baseball fan, hockey is more my speed, but I knew I couldn’t miss out on this opportunity.  I hadn’t been to the new Yankee Stadium yet and the Legends Suite…come on!  So I skipped out on CrossFit that night and hopped on a train to meet B in Greenwich so we could drive in together.

When we arrived in the Bronx, I was immediately shocked at the sheer enormity of the new stadium…it’s MASSIVE and stunningly beautiful!

The Legends Suite Club has it’s own private entrance where we were given wristbands and had our parking validated…yes validated parking!  Just one of the many perks we were about to experience.

If you aren’t familiar with the Legends Suite Club, it is the ultimate VIP experience.  Not only do you have the best seats in the house (big comfy leather seats!) with waiter service and complimentary food, but you receive a complimentary five-star dining experience like nothing I’ve ever seen!  Obviously, this was the highlight of the night for me.

When we entered the Suite, there was a gorgeous bar on the right and a massive dining room to our left.  We checked in at the podium and were taken to a table and given menus.  I think my jaw hit the floor…

So where to start?!?  This is like a foodie’s dream come true!  I got up to take a look around and B stayed at the table to order some drinks.  Here are some of the stations:

I decided to start with cold seafood and fresh pulled mozzarella with pesto and a balsamic glaze.  I mean, you can’t really go wrong there.  And yes, this is for B and I to share 🙂

When I got back to the table our drinks had arrived, along with some very good pretzel bread.

The seafood was good, but nothing beat that mozzarella.  It was so fresh and delicious!  I can’t believe I didn’t get a photo of the chef making it…FAIL.

So now it was time for round two.  Decisions, decisions…  I decided to go with the halibut, white bean ragout, sautéed spinach, steak from the carving station, and I had to try the pasta with pork ragu.

No joke, this was one of the best pieces of halibut I’ve ever had and the beans were a perfect compliment.  And the pasta…whoa.  So flavorful…I’m drooling just writing about it.  I really stuffed my face, but I obviously had to try some of the desserts!  We were brought these cute mint chocolates in the shape of baseball hats, but I had to go check out the dessert station…

What an experience!  The dining room was starting to close up as we were finishing, so it was time to go watch the game.  It was already the bottom of the 3rd inning, but we didn’t miss much because of all the TVs around.  There were even TVs built into the mirrors in the bathroom!

We made our way downstairs to our seats, but before we got outside we entered ANOTHER DINING ROOM!  Here they had all the same amazing food, including a Kosher station, except this was open until the bottom of the 7th inning.  Insane.

And if that wasn’t enough, there was a wall of snacks that you could just grab to take out to your seats!

We walked into the stadium and I think my jaw hit the ground again.  If I thought it looked large from the outside, that was nothing compared to the inside.  And we had the most amazing seats behind the visitors bench.

This was no joke!

We grabbed some peanuts because what’s a baseball game without peanuts, ordered a few drinks and settled in for what turned out to be a really fun game.

Cheers!

Cheers!

The coach of the Toronto Blue Jays actually got kicked out of the game, so that was exciting, but my favorite part about it was how the crowd reacted.  Keep an eye on the police officer who is supposed to be watching the crowd…these are the reasons I love NY 🙂

I can’t begin to say how grateful I am to have experienced this!  It was truly a once in a lifetime experience…or maybe we’ll get lucky enough to score some tickets again!  Unfortunately, it has ruined all baseball games for me in the future…how could I go back to hot dogs and beer after this?!?

  1. This is how you do it! Glad you guys had a great time. The food looks delicious and I would feel the same way, I could not go back to regular food and seats after being spoiled like that!!

  2. Oh my goodness, all that food looks amazing! I’m not a big baseball fan either, but that certainly looks like the way to go to a game!

      It was by far one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. And I’m not even a big baseball fan!
