Nationals ready for 2017 MLB Playoffs

The Washington Nationals are back in the postseason for the third time in four years and as they look to advance out of the NLDS for the first time in club history, off the field Chef Dave Peterson (@Bignatschef/Instagram) and his crew are hitting home runs with their creations.

Since taking over Nationals Park in 2012, Dave and his team have tried to bring the fans exactly what they want. They love hitting on the local flavor that the DC and surrounding area has to offer.

Below are just a few of the many options available as the Nationals get set to host the defending World Series Champion Cubs in the NLDS on Friday evening from Nationals Park. 

The Maple Doughnut Croque-monsieur will be available at Throwin’ Cheese in Section 114 and will feature Virginia country ham, gruyere cheese and maple béchamel on a griddled glazed doughnut.
