Three of the six specialty doughnuts—The H-Drizzle, S’Marvin and Honey Fig—that are only available in the Grand Entrance at the home opener. Tip: Get to the game early, as doughnut supplies are limited.
Just in time for the Kings’ home opener on Oct. 17, Golden 1 Center (G1C) has switched up its starting food lineup, offering a smorgasbord of brand-new dishes for the 2018-19 NBA and concert season.
Here's a sneak peek of the new additions to the menu of elevated arena fare with local flair (90 percent of the food is sourced from within 150 miles of the arena) helmed by G1C's executive chef Brien Kuznicki, such as the brat mac and bier cheese, with bratwurst from midtown sausage mecca LowBrau, and the new Burger Patch Cart, whose fast food items—like the Patch Burger with a Beyond Meat vegan patty—are 100 percent plant-based.
And on opening night, when the Kings will face off against the Utah Jazz, the arena will offer six special flavors of brioche doughnuts named after Kings players, like the Buddy Buckets doughnut named for shooting guard Buddy Hield, which is topped with a maple glaze, candied bacon and a pipette of bourbon. The rest of the season, you can still get your fried food fix with the new fried chicken and brioche doughnut plate.
