INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Pacers season opener is a week away and on Wednesday the team debuted a new reason to visit Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
It’s not the players on the court, but the cooks in the kitchen.
The Pacers alongside Levy Restaurants are revamping the culinary experience in both the main concourse and suite level. You will see plenty of offerings from popular local restaurants too. These moves are set to be ready to go for opening night.
Rick Fuson, president and chief operating officer at Pacers Sports & Entertainment, said, “Indianapolis has a great culinary experience, and we should be proud of that, too, and we’re going to try to bring those kinds of things whether it’s Jack’s Donuts or whether it’s Mimi’s meatballs or whether it’s Goose The Market or whatever the case may be to the arena.”
Executive chef Chris Albano of Levy said, “I’m really excited to bring an authentic taste of Indianapolis to the fans here at the Fieldhouse; lots of great options from our local partners. Most of this food is going to be available in your general concession areas on the main concourse, so look for them there. Absolutely, a lot of new things to try here at the Fieldhouse.”
Steak ‘n Shake is also in on the fun this season.
The setup off the main concourse is brand-new to Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
