The Minnesota Twins and Delaware North Sportservice – the team’s exclusive food, beverage and retail partner – today announced a variety of new menu offerings to be served during the 2016 Major League Baseball season at Target Field.
Minnie & Paul’s, a Twins-themed pub located under the ballpark’s iconic center field celebration sign, will feature Minnesota-branded food options while serving as a stylish gathering space for fans of all ages.
Among the new partners are local favorites Pizza Lucé – which will be offering its award-winning pizzas, including a variety of gluten-free and vegan options – and Red Cow, which will serve its signature poutine as well as three of its innovative burger concepts, including their award-winning Turkey Burger, named among USA Today’s Top 10 Turkey Burgers in the country.
Also new to the ballpark is the Hot Pretzel Bites & Brews cart (Section 101), which will serve three varieties of fresh pretzel bites. The savory pretzel bites are seasoned and topped with a rich beef gravy and then sprinkled with Monterey jack cheese.
For those with a sweet tooth, the sweet pretzel bites are finished with macerated berries, a Nutella sauce and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. The local pretzel bites are smothered in a luscious homemade Summit beer cheese sauce, topped with candied bacon and dusted with a hint of cayenne pepper.
Additional new offerings include:
Fans can look for a true Loon Café experience (portable near Section 101) that will include a pair of signature items: Pecos River Red Chili (topped with sour cream, green onions and shredded cheese, and served with a side of Texas toast) and the Grape Ape, a signature cocktail featuring Pinnacle Citron and Buddy’s Grape Soda.
Hrbek’s (Section 114/Gate 14) will feature a new signature drink – the Buffalo Chicken Bloody Mary, which boasts a chicken wing, celery, blue cheese, cheddar cheese, a pepperoni stick, a pepperoncini and an olive. The drink can be upgraded with the addition of a burger slider.
Senor Smokes (Sections 105 and 205) will now serve two types of burritos by local favorite Barrio – a vegetarian option and one featuring barbacoa.
