It’s been 38 years since the Mets won a World Series, but when it comes to ballpark cuisine, they’re repeat champions. On a blustery late March afternoon at Citi Field, the team introduced its latest food options ahead of the 2024 season. Touting their second straight title of best in MLB for stadium food (as voted on by the readers of USA Today), the Mets unveiled new burgers, fried chicken, pepperoni nachos, and much more. Here’s a quick look at what fans can expect to find at Citi Field this year.

On the Menu

Let’s start with what’s new this season, beginning with a trio of celebrity chefs:

Getting There

Mets - Willlets Point station (Scott Lynch)

As always, the best way to get to Mets games is to take the train to the game! If you're coming by subway, you can take the 7 to Mets-Willets Point station, right across from the stadium. If you're taking the Long Island Rail Road, head to Mets-Willets Point LIRR station via the Port Washington line; LIRR riders can transfer from other lines at Woodside, while Metro-North riders can pick up LIRR at Grand Central Madison.



Port Washington

Both the LIRR and the 7 train will bring you steps from the ballpark!
