In honor of this weekend’s subway series, FitR’s column is all about where to eat around Yankee and Shea stadiums.
The goal was to find eateries good for a quick bite or take out no more than a few blocks away from the stadium, places that you don’t have make an extra subway stop to get to. (That left out delicious Flushing, which I realize is only one subway stop from Shea.)
I found plenty of good stuff—from amazing curried goat at the Feeding Tree in the Bronx, to Ecuadorian ceviche and empanadas at La Ambateñita in Queens. And I found the place that supplies the Mets clubhouse with its after-game meal, and where you can sometimes find players or coaches hanging out.
All of it lightyears better, in my opinion, than overpriced ballpark fare.
