Citi Field Catch of the Day, Beware!
I'm a huge Mets fan, and a huge fan of Citi Field, their new ballpark. I love the additions to the normal ballpark concessions, and I'm slowly trying the new offerings. Last night I tried the Lobster Roll and the Po'Boy Sandwich w/ Blackened Shrimp on Ciabatta Roll.
The lobster roll ($18) was insultingly bad. It was served on a TINY, crappy bun, and the fish was tasteless. In 3 awful bites, $18 has never been so worthless.
The po'boy ($12.75) is essentially a huge mustard sandwich after you eat the three/four pieces of shrimp in each half, but I would definitely recommend it! The ciabatta is perfect and the sandwich is quite large. The shrimp I did get were delicious.
I know SE NY did a story on the food at Citi, but I just wanted to offer two more quick reviews.
