Michael Mina is once again set to launch a lineup of guest chefs at Levi's Stadium for football season, starting on Monday night.
The chefs will cook refined football-themed menus, offered with beverage pairings, on game days at Michael Mina's Tailgate, the restaurateur's members-only club at the stadium.
The schedule includes a mix of notable local and international chefs. Monday's kickoff against the Vikings features San Francisco chefs Ryan Farr (4505 Meats) and Joshua Skenes (Saison).
Other highlights of the series include molecular gastronomy star José Andrés with "Top Chef" winner Michael Voltaggio (October 18), PBS host and restaurateur Todd English (November 8) and "Bizarre Foods" host Andrew Zimmern with Boston chef Matthew Jennings and David Bazirgan of San Francisco's Dirty Habit (November 29).
This kind of culinary offering doesn't happen on a garlic fries budget, though; a season membership to the Tailgate, only available for Niners season ticket holders, costs $5,000. In addition to food and beverages, membership includes perks like VIP parking, an invite to a big Super Bowl 50 bash in San Francisco and a personal concierge.
