Some more concessions news from the Cleveland Indians for the 2016 season, as the team adds three new restaurants to the newly renovated Infield District as part of the long-term upgrades to Progressive Field.
The three new restaurants: Happy Dog, Ohio City Burrito and Cleveland Pickle. The new restaurants also join last year’s additions to the Right Field District — Melt, Barrio, Sweet Moses, Great Lakes Brewing Co. and Dynomite Burger.
Happy Dog, located in Cleveland’s Gordon Square neighborhood, has gained notoriety for its upbeat atmosphere and fun, yet simple menu options. Happy Dog offers unique hot dogs, veggie dogs, french fries and tater tots, and boasts an extensive list of toppings, which are all made in house and allows customers to get creative with their meal.
Ohio City Burrito opened in 2009 in Cleveland’s growing Ohio City neighborhood, and offers customers a burrito bar and a variety of Mexican favorites including burritos, tacos, salads, nachos and more. Homemade guacamole and a variety of original salsas made fresh daily.
Cleveland Pickle is also a local foodie favorite because of its uniquely Cleveland sandwich experience, with handcrafted creations — and Cleveland names. The shop, located in the heart of downtown at Euclid and East Ninth Street, also features creative salads, daily housemade soups and a retail line of housemade pickles.
Following last offseason’s successful remake of the Right Field District, this second phase focuses on incorporating more local flavor into the ballpark, along with improving main concourse views of the playing field and creating a new club. The new club will be located on the ballpark’s main level and behind home plate. It will include a full bar, access to a variety of new concessions options within the space, a customer service center and a glass front for prime viewing. The club will remain open after games, offering season-ticket holders an option to let traffic clear on high-demand games. Phase two also includes a new scoreboard.
