The Corner Tap Room at Comerica Park Reopens with New ‘Farm-to-Table’ Menu

008

The Corner Tap Room at Comerica Park has reopened, and it’s back with a fresh farm-to-table menu sourced from nearby locales, including an East Side neighborhood.  

Inside the cozy Comerica Park hangout, which debuted in 2015, guests will find flat screen TVs, a bar and a rotating selection of draft beer on tap. The restaurant also features mementoes and historic photographs from the baseball team’s Navin Field, Briggs and Tigers Stadium eras. The eatery’s vestibule floor even boosts a replica of the brick-paved Michigan Avenue street near the Tigers’ former Corktown home.

“It’s a seasonal menu and it comes from farms in the local area. We don’t have any freezers, and we use a lot of vegetables from RecoveryPark Farms,” said Rico Ferranti, ‎Food & Beverage Director for concessionaire ‎Delaware North Companies.

RecoveryPark, a nonprofit enterprise that sits on a 50-acre plot in the Poletown East neighborhood near Hamtramck, delivers chef-requested specialty produce to restaurants within a 300-mile radius.

Two new vegetarian-friendly options include an Udon bowl filled with shitake, carrots, scallions and a red curry broth and the Porchetta Fresco dish—a rustic ciabatta sandwich stuffed with arugula, olive pepper salad, queso fresco, pickled red onion and cilantro pesto.

The spring menu features several new dishes, including a fried cauliflower appetizer, a Sharifa halal beef sausage dog, bleu cheese bacon fries, and the New Orleans-inspired grilled Muffaletta sandwich, which is packed with salami and Italian toppings.

In addition to the latest items, Corner Tap Room has brought back popular nibbles, including The Corner Burger, the Reuben, fish & chips, pretzel bites, chicken strips and an array of fresh salads.

Ferranti says the burger, which comes with a choice steak beef patty and special toppings on a brioche roll, is “a very big hit” with baseball fans and other diners.

All 10 entrees come with hand-cut fries.

The Corner Tap Room is located near Gate A, in Section 115, between Columbia and Elizabeth streets.

Business hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 4 p.m., if there’s a night game.  The Corner Tap Room is also open on the weekend for games only, three hours before the action begins.

The ballpark eatery, which opened right before the Detroit Tigers’ 2018 Opening Day, operates for only part of the year, opening every spring and closing in the fall.
