Nationals Park Ranked Among the Best Ballparks for Vegetarians


Buy me some peanuts and cauliflower sandwiches? People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has named Nationals Park the No. 5 most vegetarian-friendly Major League ballpark in the country.

Among the reasons cited in the decidedly unscientific ranking: the roasted cauliflower sandwich from Mike’s Isabella’s G, the vegan crab cake and vegan cheesesteak from Field of Greens, the veggie sloppy Jane from Grand Slam Grill, falafel from Schwafel, and veggie quesadillas from El Verano Taqueria. Many of these meat-free options are new as of this season: Field of Greens, for example, is the first vegetarian-only concession stand at the stadium.

Nationals Park was beat out by the ballparks for the New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, and in first place, the San Francisco Giants.

You can find a full list of the vegetarian options at Nationals Park here. Granted, a lot of them are French fries.

    If it's vegan it's not a crabcake, cheesesteak, or any other kind of dairy or meat product. It's soycake, soylent green, whatever, but don't try disguising it as some meat offshoot. Like Tofurkey. Call it what it is.

    They should try to chili half-smoke from the Ben's Chili Bowl stand at the park. They don't know what they're missing.

    Kat, you clearly have a problem you need to talk out with someone. Find a friend who will listen to you and explain the difference between something that's your business and none of you business...
