Citi Field Restaurant Named For Hi-Speed Train

The Mets’ new Citi Field (a.k.a. Taxpayers Field), set to debut inside of a month, will feature a high-end restaurant named for the high-speed Amtrak train covering the Northeast, Acela. Drew Nieporent, sort of the Willie Mays of the New York restaurant scene, will skipper the Acela joint.

Acela will be located down the left field line, with giant plate-glass windows overlooking the field.

It’s not to be confused with Acela’s, a Spanish joint in Yonkers.

True to its name, Acela will typically be half empty and considerably late with your order, and will cost about twice as much as you expected it would.

    Ha-ha, that’s funny. Yeah, hopefully it won’t suck as much as Amtrak.
