Target Field gets new ballpark fare and center field seating this season
By ERIC BEST : The Journal : APRIL 5, 2016 (UPDATED: APRIL 7, 2016)
The team led media and season ticket holders through new eats, from a bolder Bloody Mary to an array of ice cream, as well as $5 million in enhancements to Target Field’s center field.
On the first level of center field, the team has added Catch, a private suite available to season ticket holders, which it has been planning since last year. Access to the 112-seat bar and restaurant space is all-inclusive and includes small plates and drinks.
On the second level, the team has added a new Pizza Luce stand and Red Cow stand. Red Cow, which debuted at the ballpark last year, is expanding its menu with its award-winning turkey burger and poutine. The general admission space also includes the Twins-themed Minnie and Paul’s pub, which serves Minnesota-branded food options.
Target Field’s food service provider Delaware North is introducing several items to the ballpark this season.
Hot Pretzel Bites & Brews will have a cart in section 101 that will serve three kinds — savory, sweet and local — of fresh pretzel bites.
Hrbek’s is offering a new signature drink, the Buffalo Chicken Bloody Mary, which will have, among other toppings, a chicken wing and a pepperoni stick. The drink can even be upgraded to include a burger slider.
Izzy’s Ice Cream is coming to several sections of the ballpark now that Northshore Creamery will carry its soft serve ice cream and Izzabella! Gelato by Izzy’s will be available in sections 119 and 202.
Hot Indian Foods, another debut last year, is adding the mango lassi, a yogurt-based drink with fresh mango and spices, to its menu this season.
Minneapolis-based Loon Café will serve its signature Grape Ape with Pinnacle Citron vodka and grape soda, along with its Pecos River Red Chili.
Senior Smokes in sections 105 and 205 will serve two burritos from Barrio, one vegetarian and one with barbacoa.
The Twins will host their home opener on Monday, April 11 against the Chicago White Sox.
