Following the addition of an 8,870-square-foot kitchen and commissary space as part of the 1060 Project, the Cubs and hospitality partner Levy have enhanced the menus across dining destinations in the grandstand and Budweiser Bleachers, adding top local restaurants, creative Chicago tastes, globally-inspired loaded hot dogs, and signature brews and cocktails. Many of the new locations and menus will debut at the Home Opener, while full dining enhancements, including a special guest chef series, will open in June.
A new Craft Hot Dog Lineup at Sheffield Counter (formerly the Decade Diner) features a rotating lineup of loaded hot dogs reflecting global flavors, featuring Vienna Beef hot dogs served in a toasted, split-top New England-style bun. Examples include the Bao Wao Dog with pickled daikon and carrot, Sriracha aioli, cilantro and mint; the Kimchi Dog with crisp braised pork belly, pickled ginger aioli and kimchi; the Pilsen Dog with roasted corn, lime-cilantro aioli and Tajin seasoning; and the Wrigley Dog as an “easy to eat” version of the Chicago Dog with chopped Chicago relish mixing tomato, onion, pickles, neon relish, sport peppers, celery salt and mustard.
Also at the Sheffield Counter, Levy will dish up seasoned Al Pastor Chicken Tacos topped with pickled red onions, cilantro, sliced radish and queso fresco; the Aloha Chicken Sandwich with sweet chili glaze, Asian slaw and sautéed pineapple on toasted Hawaiian bread; and the double-patty Catalina Burger topped with American cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, sliced onions, tomatoes, lettuce, pickle and Catalina sauce on toasted brioche bun.
The Marquee Grill, located behind the famed Wrigley Field Marquee on the terrace level, adds the Marquee Melter – a decadent grilled cheese sandwich made with Butterkase and cheddar, house-smoked brisket and caramelized onions.
Several partners will continue to add their delicious offerings to Wrigley Field, with additional high-profile chefs joining this June for an exciting visiting Chef Series.
Pork & Mindy’s, a local spot known for 14-hour smoked meats and globally inspired sandwiches from Food Network Star Jeff Mauro, will serve its signature dishes in several locations throughout the ballpark. Bao to the Pork, with hickory-smoked pulled pork, Asian sauce, pickled daikon and carrot, cucumbers and jalapeño relish on steamed bao bun, will be served at Platform 14 in the Budweiser Bleachers and Marquee Classics, a new Wrigley Field concession stand located near home plate on the main concourse coming in June. Platform 14 also will serve Pork & Mindy’s Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with smoked pulled chicken tossed in fire sauce, topped with gorgonzola, pickled carrots and celery, and ranch dressing on buttered New England roll; Pig Candy, which is sweet and savory brown sugar-coated bacon bites; and Pig Candy BLT featuring Pig Candy bacon with lettuce, tomato, dry rub mayo and balsamic onions on a buttered brioche bun.
Hot Doug’s will continue to serve its decadent, alumni player-inspired sausages on a rotating basis at Platform 14, while Gilbert’s Craft Sausages are available at Gilbert’s Grill Cart in the main concourse.
Fans can still find their favorite Chicago staples, such as Vienna Beef hot dogs, sausages and Wrigley Field Smokies. Giordano’s classic deep dish pizza returns to a new Giordano’s Pizza Kitchen Stand near Aisle 102-104. Buona Beef will return to Platform 14, along with a new specialty combo cart located in the right field concourse.
Whether fans want to wash down their cuisine with an ice-cold Budweiser, signature draft or a craft cocktail, Wrigley Field’s selection has them covered. Beam Suntory becomes the official spirits partner of the Cubs and Wrigley Field, mixing up cocktails throughout the ballpark with recognizable brands including Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, EFFEN Vodka, Cruzan Rum and Hornitos Tequila. Hand-batched, seasonal Billy Sunday Craft Cocktails inspired by the Logan Square staple will be served in the Budweiser Bleachers and Sheffield Counter in right field as well. Beer lovers will enjoy Goose Island’s new 1060 Wit, a signature blend for Wrigley Field inspired by traditional Belgian Wits using un-malted wheat, orange peel and coriander.
