The newest alteration to Safeco Field’s offseason facelift is Edgar’s, an open-air restaurant honoring Seattle legend and Hall of Fame nominee Edgar Martinez.
Where the Flying Turtle Cantina once offered fans delicious tortas and a narrow view of the field under sections 151 and 152, Edgar’s promises a ‘Pen-like atmosphere and the chance to snag a home run ball from the newly-drawn fences.
The menu will provide similar cuisine to its predecessor, with a few changes (noted by MLB.com’s Greg Johns):
“The restaurant will have a “South of the Border” flavor and will feature occasional appearances by the Mariners’ Hall of Famer and also include the mezcal liquor, Zac, that Martinez has been marketing the last two years in partnership with hair salon mogul Gene Juarez.”
If this is all a little hard to visualize, here are before and after shots, with a detailed rendering provided by the Mariners’ official Twitter account:
Edgar’s is scheduled to open just in time for Opening Day on April 8, 2013.
