What Will Be the Next Foodie Hit at Camden Yards?

For all the fanfare about the stadium – and it is a great place to see a game – I've never been blown away by the food at Camden Yards, home of the Orioles. In fact, I've really only found it to be, well, adequate. Adequately stadium-like.

Yes, the idea of an open barbecue stand like Boog's BBQ is a nice touch and the aromas that waft across the air as you duck the home run balls offered up by the O's pitching staff are enticing, but I live down the road from Andy Nelson's so I don't need to go to the stadium for good BBQ.

What the stadium really needs is a signature dish, something that's uniquely Baltimore and only available at the stadium. New stadium concessionaire Delaware North Cos. Sportservice seems to realize this as well and execs from the company took a culinary tour of the area this week hoping for the inspiration for that dish.

What would you suggest as a signature "Baltimore" dish for Camden Yards in 2011?

You really need finger foods for the stadium - and something that's still going to taste reasonably good whether it's hot or cold.

When I think of places like Baltimore I think of crab. How bout something like crab cakes, crab tacos or crab nachos? Just a thought.

Denise: I'd be all in on crabcakes, tacos or nachos!
