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.
