The Phillies’ home opener is tomorrow night, April 5th, at Citizens Bank Park. And Aramark, which manages foodservice at the ballpark, has a ton of new and renovated concession stands, dining areas, and menu items to show off this season.

In addition to The Yard, a 13,000 square-foot interactive space for kids, the park has added several “social spaces” with drink rails, high-top tables, and televisions for enjoying concessions, and several new bars, food stands, and party spaces.

Don’t miss these new spots and menu items:

  • The Backyard Bar, located near The Yard, with local beers.
  • The kid-centric space also includes a new Turkey Hill Ice Cream bar.
  • Boardwalk Eats  in Left Field Plaza, with shore-style fare like hot dogs, burgers and sweets.
  • P.J. Whelihan’s pub fare in Ashburn Alley.
  • The newly renovated Bill Giles Party Suites — one of which features glass walls and skyline views of the city.
  • House-smoked brisket tacos, topped with jalapenos, cilantro crema, queso fresco and sliced radishes, behind sections 120 and 135.
  • Jane Dough edible cookie dough, which can be ordered with or without toppings and soft-serve ice cream, behind sections 110 and 142.
  • Harry the K’s new crispy chicken sandwich on brioche, topped with tomato bacon jam, roasted shaved Brussels sprouts and Vermont cheddar. They’ve also got a new vegan roasted cauliflower cheesesteak with poblano peppers, onions, and vegan cheese.

Or these longtime favorites:

  • Primo Hoagies brought their killer sandwiches to Ashburn Alley last year.
  • Campo’s, which has been turning out solid cheesesteaks and hoagies in Philly for 70 years.
  • And Tony Luke’s for cheesesteaks and more classic sandwiches like roast pork.
  • Federal Donuts for fried chicken and hot or fancy donuts.
