The product on the diamond at Citi Field might not be of the highest quality, but if one Forest Hills restaurant gets called up to the big leagues, the product at the concession stand could be a home run with fans.

Corfu Grill, located at 70-17 Austin St., is competing with a Bronx restaurant and a Manhattan dessert shop to win a Citi Field concession stand for the remainder of the New York Mets’ season.

The competition, hosted by Citi, is a part of the launch of the company’s Citi Small Business Call-Ups program.

The winning eatery will be chosen through an online voting process on the Mets website, where fans can vote through Friday for the restaurant they want to win.

As of late Wednesday morning, Corfu Grill was the leading vote getter, with 46 percent of the tally, with Manhattan’s Lady M Confections dessert shop and the Bronx’s Ceetay restaurant splitting the rest.

If Corfu Grill holds on to win, it will take over a Citi Field concession stand on July 5 and operate it until the final home game of the season on Sept. 28.

The winner will be announced during the July 4 holiday weekend.

Corfu Grill owner Georgis Aspiotis could not be reached for comment by press time.
