THE D.C. BASEBALL MENU
Baseball season brings out the devoted fans, along with the culinary taste-meisters who judge how good the food is in the nation’s major league stadiums. Such is the case with Eater.com — a foodie’s dream news site — which has reviewed the menus in nine stadiums. The nation’s baseball fans will be well-fed this season.
But what about the lawmakers, politicos and other heavy hitters? What will they encounter should they make a visit to Washington’s splendid Nationals Park, just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol itself? Here’s a sampling of the fare beyond the tasty but typical burgers and hot dogs, compiled by Warren Rojas, who covers food trends in the nation’s capital for the food site:
Chicken fried steak sandwiches with country sausage gravy, marinated chicken kabobs with rice, open-face chicken and waffles with bacon, pork belly bao buns, Belgian-style french fries, crab topped tater tots, Old Bay chicken wings, Italian sausage burgers with caramelized onions, peppers and provolone cheese, hickory smoked baked potatoes and bourbon-, cinnamon- and babka-flavored ice cream.
