Food at PNC Park
Food is an essential part of the baseball experience, and PNC Park does not disappoint. Here’s a gastronomic guide to PNC and environs:
Grab a pre-game snack at Elliot’s Off Broadway Deli & Restaurant. With hot dogs, peanuts and hot pretzels for about two bucks, Elliot’s is a great and inexpensive way to start, and it’s right at the park.
Once inside PNC hit up Manny’s Bar-B-Q (as in ex-Pirates catcher Manny Sanguillen) along the Riverwalk, or Pops’ Plaza (named in memory of Willie Stargell) in the main concourse, sections 130-134. And you’ve got to try the famous Primanti Bros. sandwich, which is a Pittsburgh institution. Try one of a variety of sandwiches, all smothered in slaw and french fires on fresh Italian bread. You can get it at section 310 and the Smorgasburgh food court.
Here are a couple of other ways to enjoy the food at PNC Park during the game:
-The Hall of Fame Club is a casual restaurant and sports bar that is open to all ticket-carrying fans during and after the game. The club seats over 200, has a full service bar with twenty flat screen HD televisions, and a 1,000 sq. foot patio overlooking left-center field that holds over 100 fans.
-New for the 2008 season, the all-you-can-eat seats in PNC Park are the best option for the hungry fan. For a mere $35 a fan gets a ticket to the game in section 147 (right-field corner) and a wristband that allows them unlimited food from the North Shore Refreshment Stand on the Riverwalk, including hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, ice cream and soda. Alas, no beer.
Still hungry after the game? Cross the Clemente Bridge and continue down 6th Avenue to the Lemon Grass Café and grab some hot chicken teriyaki skewers for the ride home.
