Dmitri's Carry-Out Cafe


(By Preston Keres - TWP)


Dmitri Young may only have spent three days in Harrisburg, but they were three joyous days in the Senators' clubhouse, as Dmitri's Carry-Out Cafe quickly went fully operational. Three days, three takeout orders from three different restaurants, and, according to Nationals.com, a $3,000 bill.

"I find this utterly ironic and hilarious but I am going to withhold my fat joke arsenal and just let the event speak for itself," wrote Nationals Inquisition, as if there were something untoward in a $1,000 clubhouse dinner from an All-American chain or three.

(Nats.com added that Young was "often talking to the players and cheering for the team in the dugout." Here's hoping he kept his voice low, since we all know what baseball players think about the Nats cheering for their team from the dugout.)

Regardless, a bit more info on Dmitri's Carry-Out Cafe, courtesy of Dan Watson, the Sens' assistant director of broadcasting and media relations. The typical clubhouse meal is cold-cuts and sandwiches, sometimes augmented by pasta or a crock-pot meal. Dmitri nightly ordered enough to feed not only the players but also the trainer, the clubhouse staff, the coaching staff, the strength guy, and presumably the mascot and peanut salesmen as well. "We're talking quite a bit of food," Watson said.

And most importantly, the menu? If you were a finger-nail painting, three-bills-pushing, fan-favorite Major Leaguer spending three nights in central PA, where would your meals be coming from?

Night One: Outback Steakhouse

Night Two: Carrabba's Italian Grill

Night Three: The Texas Roadhouse (home of "large portions and great value to give you Legendary Food at a reasonable price," which counts when you're ordering for 35.)

Yeah, the menu included rib-eye steak, if you were wondering.

Carrabba's Italian Grill

I thought that place only existed in radio ads.

Central PA checking in! You would be surprised (or, maybe not so much) at the wait times people willingly tolerate for the pleasure of dining at Texas Roadhouse.

Nice work by Dmitri.
