The 49ers have partnered with the award winning chef Michael Mina to open a new restaurant in the new Levi’s Stadium.
The 1.3 billion dollar complex has spared no expense–and neither has Mina. The 14,500-square-foot, ground-level space will combine the high-end aspects of Mina’s famed Bourbon Steakhouse with the addition of a causal sports pub, perfect for football fans and foodies alike. Mina’s newest creation is slated to open in August of 2014.
The Steakhouse dining area will will mimic Mina’s critically acclaimed Bourbon Steakhouse, which has outposts in Washington D.C., Miami, Scottsdale, and San Francisco’s Union Square. The meaty menu promises the highest quality of pre-poached, dry-aged, Brandt Farm steaks, with prices ranging from $34 (the 8-ounce Hanger Steak) to $89 (8-ounce Snake River Farms Rib Cap).
The Bourbon Pub has been designed by New York’s AvroKO firm and is comprised of an open kitchen, a wood-fired grill, a ceiling mounted gantry track to deliver giant pots of seafood to their respective boiling stations, and a 13 – foot rotisserie, and that’s not all. During home games, Bourbon Pub will be converted into an exclusive tailgate for 49er season ticket holders. The football pregame will have 70-inch HD TVs, and a custom-designed fantasy sports contest complete with sensational prizes, including the ultimate prize: a dinner with Michael Mina.
Mina, a 22-year season ticket holder, is ecstatic about his new venture with the 49ers.
“When I was presented the opportunity to partner with Levi’s® Stadium,” remarked Mina. “ I knew I wanted to create a versatile restaurant that catered to the dynamic Silicon Valley community, and one that would allow me to throw the ultimate pregame experience for fellow 49ers Faithful.”
Although the concept was heavily influenced by football season, the two eateries will be open year round.
