NFL food service providers continue to upgrade regular concession fare and provide better quality and more variety for those not sitting in the most expensive seats. A sampling of new items in a departure from the normal hot dogs, nachos and peanuts:
Boston Concessions now sells crabcakes, strawberry shortcake, beef knish and Saratoga spiral fries at Pro Player Stadium, Miami.
Levy Restaurants at Lambeau Field in Green Bay has five bratwurst flavors as part of its sponsorship with sausage maker Johnsonville, including a patty-style brat burger.
Sportservice signed deals with several local vendors and suppliers at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, including Sang Key (Chinese), Termini Bros. (Italian), Dietz & Watson (hot dogs) and the Philadelphia Cheesesteak Co.
Centerplate features the branded Maui Wowie smoothies at Invesco Field in Denver.
Stadium Food & Beverage at Ericsson Stadium in Charlotte debuts microbrew Cottonwood Ale, and converted sit-down space to "markets" with grab-and-go foods such as chips, Moon Pies, cookies and ice cream.
