The dining team at FedEx Field wants fans to feel extra full for the upcoming Washington Redskins football season, with plans to serve five-pound burritos and hefty helpings of nachos topped with half-smoke sausage and chili.
The NFL team’s newly announced eating and drinking options for the fall include fresh ingredients from local farms and waters. A Maryland crab grilled cheese comes with Old Bay lemon aioli, while D.C.’s iconic mumbo sauce gets slathered on the sizable barbecue chicken and waffles order. Fans can double fist drinks with featured craft beers hailing from the tri-state area (Devils Backbone, Port City, DC Brau, and RAR Brewing).
The Redskins recently expanded their partnership with hospitality company Levy Restaurants to cover food and beverage across the entire 90,000-seat stadium, wiping away the days when Johnny Rockets was strategically one of the only options inside (team owner Dan Snyder sold the chain in 2013).
Carnivorous options are aplenty this year. There’s a Pit Bull foot-long beef hot dog with horseradish mustard sauce and giardiniera and a “PBLT” sandwich with crispy pork belly, lettuce, tomato jam, and black pepper aioli on sourdough bread.
A new cotton candy stand uses natural ingredients to whip up cookie dough and Fireball-flavored concoctions. The team didn’t have pricing information available but says season ticket holders receive concessions discounts this year, with half-priced popcorn and up to 30 percent off other fare.
