2012_4_stadiumlogo.jpgFear not, there is more to eating at Fenway Park than pricey beer and electric orange nachos. Fenway has several reliable dining options within the stadium, plus there are plenty of great meals waiting just beyond the Green Monster. Steve "Nookie" Postal, the park's executive chef and an upcoming contestant on the Bravo show Around the World in 80 Plates, cranks out high end fare with seasonal ingredients, and on the other end of the spectrum, Fenway Franks and funnel cake are in no short supply.

Now, in honor of the first day of the 2012 baseball season, here's a guide to what to eat at Fenway Park and where to find it.

Fenway Park's Standouts
