Bypass the Peanuts and Cracker Jack

The Mariners get a serious home field advantage in concessions


The days of lukewarm boiled hot dogs and doughy pretzels are long gone, people.

We're a foodie city, so it's only right and natural that we have a foodie stadium as well. Here's a quick go-round of the hot spots in Safeco Field.

Edgar's Cantina (behind the LF wall)
Ethan Stowell pays tribute to the 18-year Mariners veteran with his new Mexican spot, featuring salchicha tortas and cocktails by Rob Roy's master mixologist Anu Apte. You can also dine at the Home Run Porch above the scoreboard, but watch your drink -- this area's open to fly balls.

Hamburg + Frites (The Pen)
Stowell's other Safeco fast food venture, this upscale take on the hamburger starts with a grass-fed beef patty topped with Tillamook cheese. Stowell is also introducing a fried oyster po' boy and his take on chicken tenders.

ricenroll (Section 136)
It's no surprise that the sushi roll named after the most popular Mariner is a Safeco favorite. The Ichiroll -- spicy tuna with cucumber -- is a tasty, fresh alternative to stadium standards.

Apizza (The Pen)
New Haven, CT pizza impresario Bill Pustari opened this stand in 2011 that has recently come into its own as a mighty fine place for a slice. This year sees a thin-crust pizzetti with Caesar salad added to the menu.

Ivar's (Section 117)
We close with a Seattle tradition. It wouldn't feel right at any other ballpark in the world to eat fish and chips in the stands, but this isn't any other ballpark. Ivar's delicious battered fish and trademark clam chowder go great at the plate.
