EXPANDING THE PALATE: In Baltimore, Richard Gorelick notes Camden Yard's new concessionaire, Delaware North Companies Sportservice, yesterday unveiled a new ballpark menu “with a decidedly local flair.” The company “brought the traditional (a tastefully done crab cake), the outrageous (an Esskay hot dog topped with smoked pit beef, pepperoni hash stewed tomatoes and crispy onions) and the whimsical (a golden pretzel braided in the shape of the Orioles' O).” The concession offerings in the past “felt generic and indistinct to many fans.” The “only exception over the years” has been Boog's BBQ, and “even that is being given a Sportservice twist.” Some of what Sportservice will serve "appears to have been directly inspired by the culinary bus tour of Baltimore that Sportservice executives and regional chefs took" in December. Gorelick notes the “traditional ballpark items will still be available” at the ballpark (Baltimore SUN, 3/24).
