An Upscale Daycation in New York City
The Major League Baseball playoffs are only a few weeks away. This year, only the New York Yankees will be hitting the diamond for a chance at playing in the World Series, but you can still catch a few Mets games before their season comes to an end.
With the MLB baseball season concluding, we figured it was a great time to offer some recommendations on planning the perfect day of food, baseball and post-game entertainment. Even if you’re unable to catch the Yankees or Mets this year, these destinations are sure to offer the ideal setting for any occasion.

Enjoy NYC Fine Dining Before the Game
If you’re on the hunt for a prime cut before the game, look no further than NYY Steak, which offers two locations in Midtown Manhattan and at Gate 6 in Yankee Stadium itself. You don’t even have to be a baseball fan to appreciate the high-quality menu, nor the atmosphere, which is uniquely infused with New York Yankees memorabilia alongside fine dining décor.
For supreme dining without the baseball aesthetic, DANIEL brings together a delicious French cuisine-inspired menu with an elegant venue that’s tuned for an unsurpassed culinary experience. It’s no wonder then why so many New Yorkers have chosen DANIEL for weddings or wine tastings, as the restaurant offers an on-site wine cellar to go with its upscale bill of fare.
If you plan ahead, you can also take advantage of THE SKYBOX, which is described as Chef Boulud’s private inner sanctum, and gives patrons a bird’s eye view of DANIEL’s stunning interior.

Visit NYC Wine & Cocktail Bars
You don’t need tickets to a Yankees or Mets game to surround yourself with other baseball fans and share your team enthusiasm. For this type of atmosphere, Jack Demsey’s sets its self apart by being upscale while still holding on to the tradition of an Irish sports pub experience. Even if you’re not stopping in for a bite to eat – their menu is enjoyable, but conventional – the lively crowd and substantial cocktail menu will keep you in good spirits, no matter how your team fares on game day.
Gramercy Tavern is another hotspot for a more exclusive viewing of your baseball favorites. With an à la carte menu that emphasizes the kitchen’s wood-burning grill, tavern patrons will enjoy a great meal in a comfortable and traditional setting. An added benefit of Gramercy is its adjacent private dining room, which presents a sophisticated ambiance and a seasonal menu worthy of pairing with your wine.
