Despite the way the night's food menu has begun to shake out, the 2013 MLS All-Star Game will not be played at a five-star French restaurant. The summer spectacle is still slated to be played at beautiful, $200 million Sporting Park in Kansas City.
That doesn't mean fans in attendance won't be able to
wine champagne and dine on the night like there's a mustached man named Pierre wearing a big white hat in the kitchen. Sporting Kansas City announced on Thursday some rather unique in-stadium cuisine options for fans attending the July 31 clash against Italian club AS Roma.
From Sporting Kansas City:
For the first time, Lobster Tails, Beef Carpaccio, Oysters Rockefeller and Champagne will be carried down the aisles in the stands as an in-seat service by vendors in black-tie attire. The offer is valid while supplies last.
Other concession headliners from Executive Chef Wade Taylor include:
Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Chicken Sandwich -- a spicy, red Cheetos encrusted Chicken breast served on a roll, topped with onions, tomato, lettuce. Sold exclusively at Sporting Park!
Fried Mac and Cheese – mac’n cheese balls deep-fried with a cool ranch dressing in the all new “The Tap” stand which features a lineup of unique beers on tap.
Sporting Blue Cheese Bacon -- already a team office favorite, your choice of jalapeno or applewood smoked bacon topped with bleu cheese crumbles and sprinkled with chives.
Alright, Le Fou Sporting, we see you. No word yet whether you get to pop your own bottles of champagne and spray it all around when the All-Stars inevitably score a late winner to tally their second straight All-Star Game victory.
