Fans lucky enough to get tickets to Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis will get to spend their money on a delicious menu that gives visitors a taste of Minnesota. Aramark unveiled its menu and revealed just how much food will be prepared for the fame.
The menu was created by Aramark Senior Executive Chef James Mehne, who will be working with 2,000 staffers on game day. Chefs from Arrowhead Stadium, FirstEnergy Stadium, NRG Stadium, Raymond James Stadium and Soldier Field will join Mehne in Minneapolis.
The menu will include two items paying tribute to the homes of the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles. The New England Clam Roll has Kettle Chip Crusted Fried Clams, House Tartar Sauce and Shredded Lettuce on a Griddled Roll. Fans from Philadelphia will feel at home with the South Philly Roast Pork Sandwich — Italian Roast Pork, Sautéed Broccoli Rabe and Sharp Provolone on a Hoagie Roll.
Mehne's team also created two specialty cocktails: The AFC Wicked Red, with Cranberry Juice, Rum and Blueberry; and the NFC Midnight Green Punch, with Vodka, Sour Apple and Lemon-Lime Soda.
The general concession stands will feature a "Taste of the Twin Cities" menu. Aramark also teamed up with local Minnesota catering companies
