Buccaneers to feature new food, beverage options at Raymond James Stadium

The Buccaneers debuted a "long list of new dishes and several new food and beverage vendors" at Raymond James Stadium, including an "in-house barbecue concept, Cannon Fire BBQ, and a high-end, all-inclusive seating lounge for fans," according to Helen Freund of the TAMPA BAY TIMES. Orazio LaManna, a GM at stadium concessionaire Legends, said that after the team’s successful season, it was "clear the company had to up its game." Freund noted revamping the menus was a "months-long process," in which LaManna and Exec Chef Brent Lewis "got rid of some dishes that weren’t successful and added roughly 45 dishes to the stadium’s various concession stands." HOF Club members will find a "new menu every week inside the swanky, upper-level lounges." Champions Lounge, a "new, high-end seating area inside the East Stadium Club," will feature an "all-inclusive food and drink program, including a craft cocktail bar and multiple food stations." Along with returning food concepts from PDQ, RumFish Grill and Dunkin’, the team announced that they were "adding several others to the mix, including Aussie Grill (a fast-casual Outback Steakhouse spinoff from Bloomin’ Brands), Little Caesars Pizza and Winghouse" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 9/2).
