Food's the Target- At Target Field

Since the All-Star Game is Thursday night in Phoenix, it seems like a good time to talk about baseball and food, of course. When my daughter and her family visited us recently we took a tour of Target Field, Home of the Minnesota Twins. Target Field received an award in 2010 as the best sports experience in America.

During the tour we saw suites, several foods venues and sat in the seats behind home plate. (Nice view!) Since there was a game that night we didn't get into the teams' locker rooms but saw Menus posted in several lounges. Very interesting food for a ball field- a new trend across the country.

Here's a glimpse of two of the menus.

The Metropolitan Club

Main Courses: Traditional Chiliquiles, Classic Eggs Benedict, House Smoked Salmon with White Polenta and Apple Fennel Slaw

Also available are Danish Pastries, Cured Meats, Imported Cheese and Artisan Breads.

The Champions Club

Field of Greens: Classic Nicoise Salad, Greek Chop Salad, Baby Spinach and Orange Segments, Creamy Red Skin Potato Salad

Chef's Station: Mini Ball Park Brats with Parmesan Fries, Pan Seared Red Snapper Veracruz Style, Pan Seared Veal Provencal with Broccolini and Artichokes, Sauteed Chicken Fusilli and Fresh Waffles and Berries.

There are also many other choices available in the concourses surrounding the stadium. There must be classic ball park franks with yellow mustard and brilliant green relish somewhere!!
