The New Yankee Stadium dishes out more than Peanuts and Cracker Jack at its premiere restaurant, NYY Steak---with an interior that pays homage to the boys in Blue and menu to boot, this 115 seat Yankee eatery offers an upscale alternative to standard stadium fair. NYY Steak is equipped with flat panel TVs continuously tuned to programs on the Yankees Entertainment & Sports Network, making up for its lack of a field view. Whimsical walls that boast original signatures of past and present Yankees, and framed pictures of baseball greats help create a club-level atmosphere.
Executive Chef Jason Tilmann, alum of David Burke & Donatella, crafts a hearty line-up of traditional steakhouse items and signature dishes---try the Iceberg Wedge Salad equipped with a shot of vodka and blue cheese stuffed olive to begin; or the plump Maryland Lump Crab Cakes with a bouquet of micro greens. Entrees go up to bat with some of New York’s famous Steakhouses---the 10 oz. U.S.D.A Prime New York Strip Steak with Au Poivre Sauce is prepared perfectly juicy; the larger than life Lemon Pepper Halibut served on the bone is flavorful and flaky; and Jeter’s favorite the Crispy Free Range Organic Chicken with guanciale polenta and wild mushrooms is comfort food at its finest. Satisfying sides include crispy garlic steak house fries, decedent lobster mac & cheese, and sautéed fresh asparagus. In place of a typical bread basket, Tilmann serves up his interpretation of a pretzel bagel with mustard butter to accompany the meal. Desserts hit a home-run with the Yogi Berra inspired Yoo Hoo Float; the majestic NYY Steak 151 Volcano made with a mound of vanilla bean ice cream covered in Heath Bar then flambéed table with a shot of 151; and a traditional New York Style Cheesecake. Note: On home game days, the restaurant will only be open to ticket holders.
