The arena is the talk of the town. And so are the food options that the Brooklyn Nets' home will boast. Now, fortunately, you can take in the Nets while attempting to take in your waistline...
There have been countless stories discussing the food options that will be made available to patrons inside of Barclays. One of the more recent additions to the discussion is a story from the New York Times' Michael Grynbaum in which he discusses the fact that Barclays will only serve sodas in portions that are less than 16-ounces.
Now, today, thanks to the Brooklyn Daily, we've got some details as to the Gluten-free and organic food options that will be served in the arena.
"Snack vendors at the Barclays Center plan to serve organic pumpkin seeds and gluten-free beer and hot dogs from a portable cart, says the company providing grub at the new home of the Brooklyn Nets. The firm Levy Restaurants decided to make the new arena the only NBA stadium with an organic-and-gluten-free concession after conducting a survey that revealed a demand for foods that would fit right in on the shelves of the Park Slope Food Co-op... [the vendor] will feature a Kinnikinnick-bunned hotdog that’s gluten free ($5.95), cheesy popcorn that’s fine for folks suffering from celiac disease ($4.95), and Redbridge beer made without wheat or barley ($9) after the basketball season begins this fall."
Between that and Mayor Bloomberg's "soda ban," it's beginning to sound like a trip to Barclays could be a decent dietary option.
