Sausage & Fries, Please
I made my foray into the food at Nats Park last night with an Italian sausage located behind section 111 from Senators Sausage. The grill's aroma of spicy sausages, onions and peppers, along with a relatively empty line, convinced me to go for it. The price of $7 was a little steep, but everything is expensive at the stadium; just know it and accept it. The sausage itself was large, probably seven inches, and thick. The bun was big, made for a sausage, not a converted hot dog bun, and fresh. While the peppers were flavorless, the onions were caramelized and tasty. The sausage itself was cooked almost perfect, a little rubbery when biting all the way through, a good amount of spice without being too hot.
This won't be the best sausage you'll ever have, but at a ball game in a city without a discernible ethnic connection, it was pretty good.
The perfect compliment to the sausage was the Boardwalk fries I took down. The Boardwalk stand is in the right field plaza across from Hard Times, and the line was empty.I walked right up to the cashier and got a cup of fries for $5. The fries were great, as they have been every summer of my life on the Delaware shore. Vinegar and Old bay were readily available, making the Boardwalk Fry experience authentic; great job by the Nats to get the real thing in the stadium. One complaint: Napkins aren't available at the condiment stand, you have to go back to the register for them.
I really wanted to try Hard Times' wings but didn't get the chance; would love to hear a review though. Also would like it if the Nats could win a game. How long ago does 3-0 seem?
