The Mariners have signed some heavy hitters to create souped-up burgers at T-Mobile Park this season. What would a dream burger from Brady Williams of Canlis, Ethan Stowell of Staple & Fancy, Maria Hines of Tilth or John Sundstrom of Lark taste like? How about a burger from Mitch Mayers, whose Ballard restaurant Sawyer is in the running for a James Beard award for “Best New Restaurant in America”?

These luminary chefs will take turns offering their gourmet takes on the humble hamburger — though the rotation and exact dates for when each chef’s special will be featured have not yet been announced. The Mariners plan to talk with James Beard Award-winning chef Edouardo Jordan along with chefs Jerry Traunfeld of Poppy and Brendan McGill of the new Bar Hitchcock to brainstorm burgers as well.

At other concession stands, some new but familiar names this season: Li’l Woody’s Burgers and Paseo. Fat’s Chicken and Waffles is coming too, though it won’t be doing its namesake southern dish since it’s too hard to make for a zillion fans in between innings. Gone from the roster are Great State Burger, Jack’s BBQ and Poquitos. (Don’t worry. Poquitos’ popular fried grasshoppers are staying on the menu at Edgar’s Cantina and the concession stand across from Edgar’s Home Run Porch.)

Here's what the Mariners added to their ballpark menu in 2018
