The Eagles and Aramark unveiled new food options for the 2014 season at Lincoln Financial Field today. Among the new concessions, Marc Vetri’s Pizzeria Vetri, complete with a custom brick pizza oven and barbecue sandwiches devised by Eagles greats Michael Quick and Harold Carmichael.
The Pizzeria Vetri stands are located in both the SCA Club and Panasonic Club areas. Vetri is serving up his popular rotolo (ricotta cheese, spicy sopressata and marinara sauce) as well as two square pizzas, a Margherita and sausage as well.
Over the past year, Paesano’s has been doing a bit of an expansion experiment. They’ve opened down the shore a year ago, today; they’ve opened, and closed, in Woody’s; they’ve give us a delivery option.
I’m happy to say, the Paesano’s down the shore is open again. Operating only on weekends (Friday through Sunday), the Philly Style sandwich spot is open in the the Memories Lounge at 9518 Amherst Avenue, Margate, NJ. Shore hours are from 11 a.m. until the crowd dies away.
On Thursday night, the Eagles and the Chiefs squared off at Lincoln Financial Field. I’ll let the people who know something about the sport opine about the future of the Eagles. I was there for the food and left before the end of the first quarter.
Below, some photos of what you’re going to be eating at the next Eagles home game at the Linc. Hats off to Aramark — the folks actually making and serving the food — for running a pretty tight operation.
