Public Fare


Public Fare is our new casual café located in Winter Village at Bryant Park. Public Fare’s menu will feature seasonal fare all day with a morning coffee bar that will transition to serve wine, beer and cocktails in the evening.

Papa Rosso


Launched this season at Citi Field’s Taste of the City, Papa Rosso is a new pizza counter by Union Square Events on the Field Level. Papa Rosso’s signature pizzas feature freshly-made dough that delivers a blistery crust topped with straightforward, high-quality ingredients sourced regionally. Papa Rosso’s handcrafted pizzas honor the traditional Neapolitan style with a touch of New York flair. 

Shake Shack


Shake Shack, a fan favorite, draws a devoted following in the US and around the world. Shake Shack is a modern day “roadside" burger stand serving the most delicious 100% all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers (no hormones added ever), fries, hot dogs, frozen custard, beer, wine, and more. Shake Shack’s mission is to preserve the culinary tradition of classic American burger stands, while adding its own fine casual spin. From its premium ingredients and caring hiring practices to its environmentally responsible designs and deep community investment, Shake Shack’s mission is to Stand For Something Good®. View Menu

Blue Smoke on the Road


Inspired by the flagship Blue Smoke restaurants in Manhattan, Blue Smoke on the Road combines a passion for regional barbecue with southern inspiration, providing unsurpassed home-style comfort food in unexpected places. A much smaller format than the restaurant locations, Blue Smoke on the Road continues to deliver Blue Smoke’s signature culinary excellence and warm hospitality. VIEW MENU  

Box Frites


Box Frites is a Belgian-style frites stand with a menu of delicious game-day indulgences. What began as a stand devoted to thick-cut Idaho fries paired with tasty homemade dipping sauces (like Smokey Bacon and Chipotle Mayo), has evolved to include crispy chicken poppers, gourmet hot dogs and more.
