Food Fit for a King(fish): Check out the the new eats

Kenosha Kingfish opens the 2015 season tomorrow after a wildly successful 2014 season.   The Kingfish have added a few new menu items and craft beers. The new Food Director, Rich Marks, gave the first look.

Rich Marks is the new Food and Beverage Director at Big Top Baseball, and in that position, is taking over the food service at Simmons Field, the home of the Kingfish.  He comes to Kenosha from a previous position at Massanutten Resort in McGaheysville, Virginia.   He hasn’t completely overhauled the concession menu, simply added a few options that he thinks will be a food lover’s choice when they come to the park.

In a nutshell, Simmons Field is smokin!  Both new concession items are slow-smoked in a smoker right in the middle of the action at Simmons Field.   When I was there today, Rich showed me the smoker, which was filled with brisket and pork for the fans on opening night.

New menu item No. 1:  Slow smoked pork bbq.   Slow smoked pork is piled on a kaiser roll with homemade barbecue sauce.  Priced reasonably at $6.00

New menu item No. 2:   Slow smoked beef brisket sandwich.   An onion roll is where the slow smoked beef brisket rests on this sandwich.   The brisket is topped with Rich’s special recipe, red wine vinegar coleslaw.   The brisket is also priced at $6.00.

The Kingfish have also added some additional craft beers to the menu for you to try while enjoying the game.  If the rumors hold up about the Kingfish having one of the most talented rosters in the league, most of the games should be spectacular.   You can check out the Kingfish’s schedule here; get your tickets early as many games are already close to being sold out.
