A major change is coming to Oriole Park at Camden Yards next season: the food.
The Orioles announced Thursday that the club entered into a partnership with Levy Restaurants, a Chicago-based hospitality company that also runs concessions at other Major League Baseball ballparks, including Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and Wrigley Field in Chicago.
An Orioles spokesperson, however, confirmed that Jimmy’s Famous Seafood and Boog’s Barbeque will remain at Camden Yards despite the concessions change.
Levy also handles concessions at several stadiums in the area, including Nationals Park, FedEx Field and Audi Field in the D.C. area, as well as Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium, where Orioles minor-league affiliate the Aberdeen Ironbirds play.
The change comes after Delaware North’s 12-year contract expired Dec. 1, according to the Baltimore Business Journal.
The Orioles declined to disclose the terms of the new agreement with Levy, although they announced additional details on the food and beverage options at Camden Yards would come closer to the beginning of the 2023 season.
Last offseason, Delaware North worked with the Orioles to reinvigorate the food options at Camden Yards. They added a crab-stuffed pretzel and the Jimmy’s Famous Seafood stand.
According to a release, Levy will focus on incorporating “up-and-coming chefs, restaurateurs, and food and beverage tastemakers” from the Baltimore region.
“We’re so proud to partner with the Orioles at the truly iconic Camden Yards and build upon their vision for the ballpark,” Andy Lansing, the CEO of Levy, said in a release. “Camden Yards is a truly special place, and it sparked the evolutionary thinking that brought the fan experience to the forefront. With this inspiration, we look forward to collaborating with the Orioles and their fans to bring forward a hospitality experience that creates long-lasting memories on game day and throughout the Baltimore community.”
