Safeco Field

The array of menu offerings available at Safeco Field is highly regarded around baseball and the entire sports landscape.

The famed Hit It Here Café and Terrace specifically offers "Northwest Fresh" menu items, such as Swingin' Wings, nachos, the renowned Seattle Dog, a Bacon and Egg burger and flatbreads with savory and sweet toppings.

In this space alone, the Centerplate team proudly utilizes the following local merchants:

Rainier Ranch, Bonache Sauce Co., Tillamook Creamery, Mt. Townsend Creamery, Carlton Farms, Snoqualmie Ice Cream, Rogue Creamery and Olympia Provisions.

New local restaurant partners abound in the stadium too, such as high quality wantons and bao buns courtesy of Pacific Northwest institution Din Tai Fung and brisket, cheddar-jalapeño beef smoked sausage and buttermilk hush puppies from Jack’s BBQ.

Then, we can go into detail about the perfection of the new items created by Centerplate Executive Chef Taylor Park:

  • Available only on the club level, there are the new lobster rolls, sitting atop soft King’s Hawaiian rolls, seasoned in a garlic celery aioli.
  • New sandwich offerings include a tender pork meatball hero with a housemade marinara sauce, a pulled pork Cubano with a zesty housemade mojo sauce and a Reuben layered with corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and stone ground mustard.
  • New housemade mini donuts and jumbo donut bites with a selection of dipping sauces and toppings such as maple syrup bacon bits.

There are also a mix of infinitely customizable ice cream sandwiches from Frozen Rope, with gourmet cookies or brownies as buns and ice cream sourced from local favorites Lopez Island Creamery and Snoqualmie Ice Cream.

Centerplate doubles down on locally sourced items, having fostered a new partnership with Washington’s oldest and most acclimaed winery Chateau St. Michelle and offers a craft beer program that’s regularly lauded as the best in baseball – with such brews as Silver City, Manny’s Pale Ale and No Li.

In fact, the Safeco Field food experience was just named by Thrillist as the #1 Best MLB Stadium Food for 2018.
