BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baseball at Camden Yards is turning into an all-star feast.
Jessica Kartalija checks out the new concessions.
No matter how you slice it, cuisine at Camden Yards is a cut above the rest.
“It’s more about cooking in the moment and giving the customer a great experience,” said Camden Yards Executive Chef Joshua Distenfeld.
The Orioles have spent $11 million adding new food choices with Maryland flavor. There’s a crab enchilada, beer-battered soft shell crabs, Little Italy meatball sub, Old Bay wings, crabcakes and even Berger cookies.
“We are trying to really get out there and see what’s cutting edge and what’s new and infuse that into our own theme here at the ballpark,” said Distenfeld.
There are even healthier options, too.
“We have healthier eaters at baseball games and [salad] goes with a meatball sub so it works out,” said Eric Borgia.
“This has kinda evolved as a science now and people kinda like it,” said Boog Powell. “I think we’ve improved on it this year, too.”
Several of the chefs spent weeks tasting foods through Maryland so they could get the flavor just right.
Several of the old favorites will still be served with new names like Baseline Burgers.
