Winter Menu Arrives in Town Square

Winter at Bay Meadows has never sounded so appetizing with seasonal menu items from your Town Square favorites. Grab a “Hot Chocolate” at Fieldwork Brewing’s San Mateo Beer Garden and bring your four-legged pal along. Order up a Date Latte from Blue Bottle paired with a Holiday Sugar Cookie from Tin Pot Creamery to take a stroll with a loved one. Get your hearty fuel fix with a personal sized pizza from Slices or a new Winter Burger with Brie from ROAM Artisan Burgers. There’s a whole world of seasonal favorites for whatever you’re craving.

Take a peek at what’s on the menu this winter at Bay Meadows:

Introducing the ROAM Winter Burger made with a Fra’mani smoked ham, brie, quince spread, caramelized onions, mizuna, and stone ground mustard. Pick your patty of choice and pair it with Tandoori fries with yogurt mint dipping sauce. Add on a seasonal Blood Orange artisan soda.

Adding to the winter line up ROAM at Bay Meadows are salads such as the Farmers Market Salad (Mixed Greens, Rainbow Carrots, Radishes, Tangerines, Pumpkin Seeds, Dried Cherries, Chives, Mint, Avocado, Feta). Try hearty seasonal veggies as your whole dish. Order up the Sweet Baby Broccoli made with grilled lemon, garlic, mint, chiles and parmesan, which pairs nicely with a glass of wine.

Tin Pot Creamery has introduced new seasonal flavors! Brown Butter Pecan, Peppermint Brownie Batter and Cheesecake Almond Chocolate Crumble. And if that isn’t enough sweetness for the season, they have Holiday Sugar Cookies!

The Peppermint Brownie Batter is rich, dark, chocolatey goodness rounded out by pure peppermint. This flavor is all decked out for the holidays with crunchy (all-natural) candy cane pieces throughout.

The Brown Butter Pecan features sweet cream that is browned until toasty and nutty in flavor, and then combined with milk and cream.  Salted, buttery pecans are mixed throughout the ice cream for a flavor that is sweet, salty, nutty, and just plain delicious.

Gather round the firepits in the open-air, play a game of bocce with a Hot Chocolate in hand at Fieldwork Brewing. Hot Chocolate at FWB is a huge-bodied Stout that tastes like a proper Mexican Hot Chocolate with the season’s favorite flavors: cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.

Want a sweeter sip? Baking Bad is a sessionable pastry stout with all of the body but without the lactose. Three different chocolate additions give it a depth of flavor resembling a fresh-baked brownie, rather than a run-of-the-mill bar of milk chocolate.

Blue Bottle is getting in the holiday spirit by crafting a couple winter drinks: Date Latte and Snickerdoodle Milk. The Date Latte is made from rich espresso, creamy steamed milk, and pure date syrup—simple and perfect. But what rounds out the flavor profile (and gives you all the holiday feelings) is the freshly ground nutmeg sprinkled on the snowcaps of foam. And this nutmeg is special. It’s the best Sri Lanka has to offer with a slightly sweet, warm, and mildly spicy flavor that tastes like comfort. ⁠

The Snickerdoodle Milk, made specially for kids (or the kid in all of us), combines steamed milk with ground vanilla beans from Uganda, fragrant cinnamon from Sri Lanka, and pure date syrup.

Blue Bottle also has special seasonal nibbles, available at select cafes this season so ask your barista if they are coming to Bay Meadows. The Almond Cardamom Snowball and Warm Toffee Date Cake, just the right size for sharing. Made with rich dates and a hint of nutmeg, this holiday bundt cake is served warm and showered in buttery vanilla toffee sauce with a hint of salt.
