Food around the Rock

477 posts in this topic

I still like Down Neck for food before the game if I have time. Iberia, Casa Basca, etc. I definitely owe Quade for his reviews when glocally still existed. Bello's is great for quicker, cheap food as well, and it's right next to Penn Station, if on the wrong side. Beer's a little more expensive, but good selection, and if I'm paying under 10 for dinner I'm willing to drop more on 1 drink.

Absolutely crushed to learn that Hobby's is no longer operating a stand inside the arena this year. Not sure what my wife is going to eat when we go now. Their pastrami was one of the things that got us thru the abysmal first half of the season last year, and their red velvet cupcakes were maybe the best single food item in the joint. Gloom, despair, agony....

No doubt, but there isn't a better one inside The Rock.

The arena is still serving deli sandwiches at that section. It isn't under the Hobbys brand but it could still be ok. I didn't eat anything last game so can't speak for any of the non-brand substitutes.

Looked like they did the same with Jimmy Buff's. Similar-looking product, but it was definitely different. The potatoes looked all wrong. As soon as I saw that, I stepped out of line and got something else.

On Saturday during 'Canes-Devils my wife had a sandwich from whatever deli replaced Hobby's and said it sucked. At least with Hobbys, even though it was expensive, you knew you were getting good food. Time to try something else ...

New Jersey (Newark) -- There's a pizza place right across the street from the Prudential Center that produced one of the greatest slices I've ever had in my heavy pie-eating life. Can't remember the name, but I snapped this picture of the second slice I ordered to forever remember it.

Yes, I'm curious to know what place that is too.

New York (Rangers) -- I never knew until last year that Madison Square Garden sits on top of Penn Station, a massive rail hub. (Really, I didn't.) I find that fact to be unbelievably cool and fascinating. That's how little I'd been to NYC over the years. Somebody definitely took one look at me and said "Hayseed" during my last visit. Anyway, I understand that Manhattan is a pretty sleepy place, but Penn Station comes in handy for grabbing a train out to Long Island after they roll up the sidewalks in the city as soon as the Rangers game ends.

So according to this guy, the coolest thing to do or see in NYC when going to a Rangers game is boarding a train in Penn Station and getting the F outta town!

Damn, that's cold!!!

:rofl:

I have to imagine anyone from any of the cities listed had tons of places they thought to suggest...almost makes me think there should be a blog about it...oh wait...

Seriously though, where the heck did the pizza come from?

Its on the northwest corner of Lafayette and Broad. I believe its called Mike's Coffee Shop? The slices are the biggest you'll ever see and its dirt cheap too.

Mikes is a great value. It's not the best slice I've ever had but it's definitely good and it is pretty cheap. Usually a few Devils fans there before the game.

They still have a banner up for it on their webpage. I shot their general comment page a question asking about an opening date so we'll see if they write back.

FWIW

Dinosaur is slated to open a restaurant at 224-226 Market St., in Devils Plaza, across from the Prudential Center, in March 2012. The restaurant will also have a liquor license and will offer more than 24 craft beers on tap; the Newark location will be its first outside of New York

Dino's been moving along, there have been workers there everyday. I think they were getting alot of structural work out of the way and it looks like they opted to connect the building next door :unsure: as well. They brought in all new electrical service and gas (to be expected with a restaurant that big, (they had to do the same for loft and Edison Ale). I am just wondering if they are going to start on the apartments upstairs as well...

They're still looking at March. They said the smokers should arrive soon to install.

Alright cool cause I had walked by there during the day several time and didn't see anyone or any changes, so I was extremely worried that this had fallen through.. I'll probably wind up eating here a lot on non-game days as well as before home games

Ya I have to say that it's been pretty cool to watch the transformation that block has going on. I am excited to see that hotel get completed to assist with a sort of 24/365 crowd for the street.
