New Yankee Stadium to feature Iron Chef and more

II was reading on about the new Yankee Stadium, and all I could think about was the homeyness of the old Yankee Stadium.
In addition to chain restaurants such as Johnny Rockets hamburgers and Brother Jimmy's BBQ, the Times wrote that Yankees fans can buy premium sandwiches from Lobel's butcher, there will be a Moe's Southwest Grill, an Asian Noodle Bowl, a Latin Corner featuring Cuban sandwiches, a sushi station run by Soy Kitchen of the Bronx, a small produce market, children's items, a Hard Rock Café and an NYY Steak restaurant.

Also, the high-end club and suite seating sections will feature exclusive food options, such as the open cooking stations of the Legends Suite Club, where special guest chefs such as Masaharu Morimoto of the TV show "Iron Chef," April Bloomfield of the Spotted Pig and cooks from Le Cirque and Elaine's will appear from time to time to serve up their special fare.
This is just flat out rediculous.

I remember in the old Yankee Stadium they had this steak & cheese place called "Carl's Steaks."  They also have a place right across the street from my older sister's appartment in New York City.  It is definitely one of the top five foods I've ever had, and I highly recommend it.  If anyone have any updates if Carl's Steaks will continue to serve at the new Yankee Stadium, please let me know.

I totally agree. I don't want to go to a baseball game in "premium," "luxury" style. Duh - that's not what baseball is about. I certainly don't want NYC taxes to go for paying for a $1.5B stadium that serves sushi to rich people. What a travesty.

If the sushi keeps Matsui happy and he plays well, its definitely worth it

There's definitely a Carl's in the new stadium. My boss confirmed this after he destroyed his stomach with some cheesesteak goodness.

Can't wait to see it myself this summer!
