D.C.-born chefs Alex McCoy and Ryan Hackney are taking over the concessions lineup at the huge 42,000-square-foot outdoor venue located outside D.C. United’s new Audi Stadium, attempting to recreate their own version of Nationals Park’s nearby eating and drinking destination The Bullpen.
The chefs from Adams Morgan burger haven Lucky Buns, fresh off a World Cup pop-up on U Street, will keep a soccer-centric menu alive by shucking oysters and slinging global stadium-inspired eats at Buzzard Point’s new Field House DC (1901 1st Street SW) starting Saturday, July 28 and throughout the duration of the season. José Andrés and Compass Group USA affiliate the Levy restaurant group handle the food lineup inside the weeks-old soccer stadium, which includes arepas and fancy tacos.
Along with grilled sausage, chorizo, and lamb sandwiches, new offerings at Field House include a raw bar with oysters on the half shell, clams, and seafood dishes featuring fish plucked from the Chesapeake Bay.
Field House, which shows all home soccer games on a huge 22-foot screen, also features a wine garden and bar with beers and Bravazzi Hard Italian Soda. The open air space houses an acre of AstroTurf and umbrella-covered picnic tables, as well as a new axe-throwing setup from Park View’s Kraken Axes.
Stay tuned for details on an expanded late-night menu Hackney (The Bird, 701, and Bibiana) is helping roll out on his home turf at Lucky Buns (2000 18th Street NW) next month.
