The home opener for the Atlanta Braves’ 2024 season is April 5, which means it’s time for fans to whet their appetites with a look at the ballpark’s new offerings from food and beverage partner Delaware North.

This will be executive chef Louis Martorano’s second full season leading Truist Park’s food program after joining the team in July 2022. His 2023 season brought heavy hitters like a 3-foot-long sub and a potato-wrapped hot dog to the ballpark, while his postseason menu boasted chicken and doughnut sandwiches and a 28-ounce meatball. It looks like the 2024 lineup will be as meaty, cheesy and doughy as ever.

There will also be three new dishes available for the Xfinity Club, a private space located on the Lexus Level. Featured items include Pork Belly Grilled Cheese with sourdough bread, melted Sweet Grass Dairy gouda, mozzarella, pork belly and caramelized onions; the Ribeye Steak Sandwich with 10 ounces of ribeye topped in melted provolone cheese, caramelized onions and mushrooms on a hoagie roll; and the French Toast Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich with fried chicken tossed in a hot honey sauce sandwiched between two slices of French toast-style brioche and topped with fried pickles and a Southern pecan mayo.

Guests in the suites can expect additional offerings like a sushi platter; Crunchified Pork Wings with fried pork ribs drizzled in a Coca-Cola barbecue sauce and topped with matchstick potatoes; the Spicy Southern Chicken Slider, which comes with crispy chicken topped with pickle slices and a ghost pepper aioli; the Ahi Tuna Nachos with wonton chips topped with ahi tuna, scallions, tomatoes and mango; and the Go the Distance Italian Sub, a three-foot-long baguette with salami, prosciutto, spicy capicola, provolone, lettuce, tomatoes and red onion.

Martorano started developing the menu in November 2023, taking note of what performed well in previous years and what didn’t work. Shareable dishes were particularly popular, along with menu items that “went outside the box of normal baseball fare,” Martorano said.

“A lot of these creations come from the (other) chefs (on the team),” Martorano said. “You wanna make sure that you create a culture of people (feeling) like they can express themselves.”

In addition to a new menu, Braves fans can enjoy the Blue Moon Beer Garden, which was previously home to the Xfinity Rooftop. It will open on April 5, and will be accessible to all ticket holders once they’re inside the ballpark.

The Blue Moon Beer Garden will offer the “largest variety of beer offerings in the ballpark,” said Hannah Basinger, senior vice president of operations for the Braves. They partnered with Blue Moon’s brewmaster, John Legnard, to collaborate on the list of beers on tap. Food from a variety of stalls will also be available in the beer garden, including Fred’s Meat and Bread, which has a location in Krog Street Market and will be new to Truist Park, and bites from Alabama-based Conecuh Sausage Co.

“We want to make sure that Truist Park, from a food and beverage standpoint, represents Atlanta, represents Braves country,” Basinger said.

This season, fans can also purchase tickets for the Taste of Truist Park and the Battery Atlanta Food Tour. Tours begin on April 18 and will be offered every Thursday. Attendees will start in the Braves dugout with samples of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, then move into the Battery with stops at ASW Distillery, Mac McGee’s Irish Pub, El Super Pan and River Street Sweets.

Other food and beverage concepts at the Battery, which opened seven years ago along with the ballpark, include Battle & Brew, H&F Burger, Punch Bowl Social, C. Ellet’s, Ph’east food hall and Superica.
