Football fans will chow down on food from some of the city’s celebrated chefs.
The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, Minnesota Vikings and Aramark, the stadium’s food and beverage partner, recently unveiled new food options for U.S. Bank Stadium.
Minnesota chefs Andrew Zimmern, host of “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern,” and Spoon & Stable’s Gavin Kaysen will be cooking up new food for football fans through a new partnership, dubbed AZC Hoagies.
The duo have put together a menu of Italian hoagies for an AZC Hoagies location. Zimmern will open another location of his branded eatery, Andrew Zimmern’s Canteen. Another stop, AZC Rotisserie, will also offer rotisserie beef, goat, pork and lamb, offered by the pound or in pulled sandwiches.
“We can’t wait for you to try it come football season,” Zimmern said in a statement. “I believe Gavin is one of the best chefs in the country, and together we plan on revolutionizing the way fans enjoy their food at the stadium.”
Kingfield-based Revival Restaurant will also sell fried chicken and other southern-style recipes. Twin Cities-based restaurant chain Ike’s Food & Cocktails will also join the list of dining options with its signature Bloody Mary and steak sandwich.
“The inclusion of these outstanding culinary partners raises the bar for stadium dining and positions us to deliver the ultimate dining paradise under one roof,” said Carl Mittleman, president of Aramark’s sports and entertainment division.
U.S. Bank stadium is on track to open this summer with a ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for July 22. The MSFA and SMG, which will operate the $1.1 billion stadium, recently announced a tour schedule for Vikings fans.
