BROOKLYN (November 1, 2013) – Popular WFAN Radio hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton tonight will open their self-titled food stand Boomer & Carton Kitchen at Barclays Center before the Brooklyn Nets home opener against the Miami Heat. Esiason and Carton will be on-hand at their food stand, which is located by section 17, for the 7 p.m. ribbon-cutting, along with Barclays Center and Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark.
In personally designing the Boomer & Carton Kitchen menu, the famed radio team will offer the following items:
Boom Doggy Dog, a Nathan’s Hot Dog with smothered onions, spicy cheese sauce and crisp bacon;
The Batchagaloop Burger, which includes a Brooklyn Burger, chicken tenders, Nathan’s fries, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato, on a brioche bun;
Lobster Monster, a Red Hook Lobster Pound sandwich with authentic Brooklyn hot cherry peppers and mustard;
The C-BOOM Sandwich, which includes roast beef with Au Jus and horseradish mayo on a salted Kaiser roll;
Carton’s Kickin’ Chicken, which includes a chicken cutlet, eggplant spread, broccoli rabe, and provolone on ciabatta bread.
Side offerings include the PHU Philly Fries with old bay seasoning, and Boomer Booghie Fries, with truffle and parmesan cheese seasoning. The fries are Nathan’s. More items will be announced in December.
“We are thrilled to bring the WFAN brand and our taste for great food to the world class Barclays Center,” said Boomer & Carton. “Since starting our morning show in 2007, we’ve easily gained 50 pounds between the two of us. Clearly we know what tastes good and what people like to eat. Boomer and Carton Kitchen will be a great extension of our show and an amazing partnership for years to come with Barclays Center.”
“Boomer and Carton know their sports, but they also have a passion for food,” Brett Yormark said. “We are delighted to creatively align our popular BrooklynTaste™ program with two of New York’s most popular radio hosts. We encourage visitors to Barclays Center to stop by Boomer and Carton Kitchen to experience some of the unique and delicious offerings.”
Including the addition of Boomer & Carton Kitchen, Barclays Center has expanded its number of food vendors this season from 37 to 55.
