New Vendor for Nats Park

From a news release from the Nats:

The Washington Nationals announced today a partnership with Levy Restaurants, the leader in premium sports and entertainment dining, for food and beverage operations at Nationals Park . Levy Restaurants will be introduced to fans during the team's April 4 exhibition game at the ballpark.
Chicago-based Levy Restaurants is a James Beard and Ivy Award-winning restaurant company that transformed dining at major sporting and entertainment venues across the country, from Wrigley Field in Chicago to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles . Levy will serve traditional ballpark fare and upscale menu items, featuring regional dishes and innovative versions of D.C.'s favorites throughout the concession stands, premium seating areas, 66 suites and 10 party suites, three exclusive clubs, portable carts and at the iconic Red Porch and Red Loft at Nationals Park . Levy will also provide catering for the hospitality areas, including the Family Picnic Area and Roof Top Party Deck, as well as for all non-baseball events at the ballpark.
Levy Restaurants is a familiar face to Major League Baseball fans, also providing food and hospitality at Wrigley Field (home of the Chicago Cubs); US Cellular Field (home of the Chicago White Sox); Dodger Stadium (home of the LA Dodgers); PNC Park (home of the Pittsburgh Pirates); and Chase Field (home of the Arizona Diamondbacks).

iconic? one year old, they already have plans to change it, and the red porch is iconic? this is unexceptable.

It's so unexceptable that it's almost unacceptable!

I hope that with a name like Levy Restaurants, a kosher food stand with decent knishes will be back this season.

re: Zimm from last post -

This is where we find out just how cheap the Lerners are.

I'm all for the "build through the farm system" plan, but that plan hinges on whether or not we keep our youngsters when it is time to do so.

that means showing them the money, when the money needs to be shown.

as of right now, the situation with Zimmerman is said by all parties, to be amicable with little friction. If the situation changes and becomes more hostile, you can bet I'll be right next to JayB and the CheapLerner Brigade screaming about it.

The team should give Zimmerman a 1 year deal at his arbitration asking price. and then negotiate a long-term deal next season after he puts up better numbers. and then PAY HIM.

Re: Zim,

Doesn't anyone do non-guaranteed contracts or contracts with incentives anymore? Permanent increases for >100 games played, a BA>.300, >20HRs, <15 errors, should satisfy everyone.

You can give a contract with bonuses - but you cannot award bonuses on stats like batting average, homers, etc. You can have bonuses based on playing time.

Don't forget, it takes 2 to tango. Maybe the Nats are offering Zimm a nice deal, but he is hoping for a monster season and chance to cash in.

And to prove how super serious he is about having a monster season, he's not reporting to camp yet.

He has been a slow starter so far in his career, not sure how not coming in to camp in a decent time can help.

Comish4lif, you must be new here. It doesn't take two to tango, the Nats should present Zim with a blank check, otherwise they are being their same, cheap selves!

I'm with Champ...Not to be the grammar Nazi, but this is the 10th time I've seen the use "unexceptable" on this board TODAY. This is even worse than the use/misuse of "definately"...also NOT a word...

Please carry-on with the hot dog debate.

Great, yet more pointless conjecture about contracts and offers when we have absolutely NO information, let alone reliable information to work with.

Let's wait to see IF he gets a deal before his hearing and IF he gets a deal if its a one-year or a longer term deal and IF he doesn't get contract IF he wins or IF he loses and then IF he makes a statement how positive it is.

Until we know anything let's not get into pointless squabbiling about stuff we just don't know (but thank God will no soon!).

MBUSA, folks are just having a little fun with "unexceptable," which was unwittingly coined a few posts back.

Great hilarity and wacky hijinx, as is their wont, ensued.

not to be a grammar nazi, but whoever discovered the word "unexceptable" deserves a gold star.

omfg. that in fact was very unintentional but still worth posting.

i will move on, though, as it has been played out...

comish4life has been around these parts for some time, I believe.

As OldDude and Scooter point out, the rampant use of "unexceptable" has been for ironic effect. (Can't remember who used it originally, but I hope that they see the humor in the tweaking. We kid because we love, or because we are weisenheimers, or something like that.)

Dear Levy,

1. Customer service.

2. Don't make me feel like I am putting you out because I am asking you to sell me a hot dog.

3. Service with a smile.

4. Hire some college kids who have a good attitude and work ethic.
