Here is a shot of the left field foul pole, which is Mets orange and stands in front of the “Left Field Restaurant”, a dining experience that features a clear glass view of the ballgame. The restaurant is located on the “Exelsior Club Level”, which doesn’t sound too highfalutin, does it?
According to Mets.com, the Left Field Restaurant is “climate controlled” and features “quintessentially American cuisine”. It is open to ticketholders in the following categories: the Ebbets Club Gold, Sterling Club Platinum and Gold, Exelsior Club Platinum and Gold, all Metropolitan Boxes, and all Field Box seats.
In case you were wondering, most of the Field Boxes are sold out to season-ticket holders, though it is possible to obtain seats to some games for as little as for $75 a pop. The Metropolitan Boxes are similarly unavailable, and start at $95 for Thursday afternoon games against the Nationals. If those seats sound out of your range, don’t bother checking into the Exelsior, Sterling, and Ebbets category levels.
Here’s a closer view for those who, like me, will be on the outside looking in:
