Bologna dog: the new ballpark frank
Finally, you can get a ballpark frank the way a ballpark frank should come in Baltimore: wrapped in bologna.
Attman's Deli will have a big presence at Oriole Park this year, and it is bringing with it the classic meat-on-meat delicacy that was the invention of some Baltimore Jewish deli. (Some credit Nathan Ballow, others Attman’s. I'm not getting in the middle of that one.)
In addition to bologna dogs, Attman's will serve chicken soup, salads, knishes and coddies. Deli sandwiches on the menu include corned beef, pastrami, Reuben and the Cloak & Dagger, a corned-beef-coleslaw-Russian-dressing concoction.
Attman's will run a 200-seat restaurant in Oriole Park, in the spot once occupied by Pastimes Cafe. Attman’s will be open at the park during every home game, as well as Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this month. Starting in May, the plan is to serve breakfast and lunch seven days a week, year round.
Camden Yards will also offer food from the Greene Turtle, including cheeseburger sliders and “Turtle Bites,” which are basically chicken nuggets. Hightopps Backstage Grille will have a booth with wrap sandwiches, mac-n-cheese and cheese steaks.A stand called Charm City Market will cater to fans with food sensitivities. There will be hot dogs and sausages on gluten-free buns, a gluten-free crab cake, even gluten-free Red Bridge beer. The stand also will offer casein-free items, such as hummus and vegetables.
