These days, seeing a ballgame is all about the experience. Forget the “peanuts and cracker jack”, there’s some real gourmet food to be had. And according to dailymeal.com, that’s exactly what Safeco has.
In a recent USA Today article, thedailymeal.com’s editorial director Colman Andrews was asked to give his pick of the top 10 great places for stadium food. Seattle’s Safeco Field was in that top 10 (at number 4) with the Ivar Dog. A ballpark meal just for the Mariners, designed by Ivar’s Acres of Clams restaurants (another Seattle original). What does Andrews like about the Ivar Dog? Well, because it’s a fish sandwich, ‘ ”it’s kind of healthy, at least compared to the other dogs,” ‘ he tells USA Today.
