If You're Going to Yankee Stadium


1. The Hearty Sandwich
Yankee Tavern Bar & Restaurant, 72 E. 161st St., the Bronx; 718-292-6130 (4, B/D to 161st Street–Yankee Stadium; a block from stadium)
Yankee Tavern fans include Mariano Rivera and Yanks play-by-play man Michael Kay, who sometimes hosts his radio show here. Owner Joe Bastone has a simple explanation for his best-selling dish, the Yankee Cheese Hero ($7): “People just get excited when they see all that beef and cheese.”


2. Good, Cheap West Indian
Feeding Tree, 892 Gerard Ave., the Bronx; 718-293-5025 (4, B/D to 161st Street–Yankee Stadium; a block and a half from stadium)
Jerk chicken ($6.50) is marinated in mouth-scorching Scotch-bonnet peppers. The falling- off-the-bone oxtail ($5.50) is easier on the tongue.

3. Upscale Italian
Giovanni Restaurant & Great Pizza, 579 Grand Concourse, the Bronx; 718-402-6996 (4, B/D to 161st Street–Yankee Stadium; six blocks from stadium)
Giovanni’s has fancy entrées like the ravioli aragosta, made with squid ink, filled with lobster, shrimp, and calamari, and served in vodka sauce ($14.95).
