We're not sure where the rest of the New York Yankees had lunch on the day of their season opener against the Astros, but we can tell you that famed shortstop Derek Jeter had his big meal before the first game of his last season at Katch 22. That would be Kory Clemens' restaurant where, on this day, sports stars and a former U.S. president broke bread.
The Katch 22 team referred to today's lunch hour as one of pinstripes and quail bites as seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens brought in the New York Yankee and sports-minded friends for some pre-game pampering and heavy-duty hobnobbing.
Former President George H. W. Bush and Barbara, both huge baseball fans, were at the table as well as Minnesota Viking's running back Adrian Peterson and Winford Tubbs, former linebacker for the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers.
Adding a hometown gridiron presence to the hefty lunching was former Houston Oiler Ray Childress.
The group that included Debbie Clemens and Ashley Peterson lunched on Kory’s signature bacon-wrapped quail bites, grilled chicken breast, bacon-wrapped filet, chopped grilled chicken salad and Angus sliders. Oh, and let's not forget Kory's grilled fish tacos, Boston lobster roll, buffalo shrimp, chicken fried steak, potato-crusted Atlantic salmon, wings, salads and more. #stuffed
Then it was off to warm up at Minute Maid Park before the first pitch of the night's game.
