Pirates fans will have new food offerings to choose from this season at PNC Park.

The Pirates and Aramark announced the new menu items in a news release Tuesday, starting with the so-called Pittsburgh Cone. It’s kielbasa, pierogi, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing packed in a waffle cone.

Other new general-concessions items:

  • Quinoa Blueberry Salad: Red quinoa, chopped hearts of palm, spinach, blueberries, cucumbers, carrots, sunflower seeds and balsamic dressing.
  • Double Cheeseburger with Tater Tots: Angus chuck blend patties, American cheese and special sauce, served on a potato bun with tater tots.
  • Cinnamon Chipotle-Loaded Totchos: Tater tots covered with cinnamon spiced pulled pork, grilled red onions, green onions and topped with a chipotle maple syrup glaze.
  • Shipwreck Sundae: Jumbo marshmallows coated with a chocolate and a dusting of graham crackers served on top of ice cream in a souvenir helmet sundae bowl.

The Jim Beam Left Field Lounge is adding two items: a Mediterranean flatbread topped with feta, roasted red pepper, artichoke, spinach, kalmata olive and mozzarella cheese; and the Jerk Chicken Nacho, which is nachos topped with jerk chicken, creamy coleslaw, pico de gallo, cheddar cheese, chopped green onions and jerk-infused sour cream.

The Rivendale Suite Level will add the Strip District Italian sandwich of pepperoni, salami, mortadella, capicola, mozzarella, lettuce, tomatoes, Italian vinaigrette on an Italian baguette; and the Chicken Milanese, an Italian herb crusted chicken breast, lemon garlic beurre blanc, rosemary fingerling potatoes and charred tomatoes.

Also on the Rivendale level will be the Jolly Roger S’mores and succotash primavera with summer vegetables in a garlic butter sauce.

The Hyundai Club has a tarragon honey glazed seared salmon dish with cherries and fried capers as well as a sundried tomato risotto with caramelized shallots and shaved parmesan cheese.

The Pittsburgh Baseball Club will offer chicken tenders with french fries and multiple dipping sauces, a signature chicken sandwich which has Applewood smoked bacon and Vermont cheddar cheese and a peppercorn turkey sandwich.

In addition to unveiling the new food items, the Pirates announced that Aramark will be the exclusive food and beverage concessionaire of PNC Park this season. It will extend its reach to include all premium areas, including the Hyundai Club, The Pittsburgh Baseball Club and the Rivendale Suite Level, including Club Cambria, according to the news release.

“Since the opening of PNC Park in 2001, Aramark has worked to bring a high level of quality and innovation to the general concessions at the ballpark,” said Frank Coonelly, Pirates president in a news release. “And we are excited for what they have in store for 2019 with their expanded opportunities in PNC Park.”
