Greenhouse Craft Food Partners with Round Rock Express at Dell Diamond Intel Club Welcomes Local Farm-to-Fork Concept for 2016
ROUND ROCK, Texas – The Round Rock Express are once again raising the culinary bar at Dell Diamond. Ryan Sanders Sports Services (RS3), the food and beverage provider at the stadium, has announced a new partnership with Greenhouse Craft Food to operate a full-service restaurant in the Intel Club for 2016.
Greenhouse Craft Food at the Intel Club will feature a menu of signature dishes found at the celebrated restaurant’s original Round Rock location. The full menu, which will also offer baseball food favorites with a unique spin, will be created by Greenhouse Craft Food chef / owner Rob Snow and is expected to be unveiled later this month. To complement Greenhouse’s local ingredient-driven concept, RS3 will install and maintain an organic vegetable and herb garden at Dell Diamond. The garden will initially feature basil, lavender, cucumbers and tomatoes, which will be used in signature cocktails and dishes at the Intel Club. The garden will eventually expand to provide herbs and vegetables for menu items throughout the venue. The first harvest is expected in time for Opening Day on Friday, April 15.
“This exciting new offering is another extension of our desire to provide fans with creative local flavors steeped in quality,” said RS3 Vice President of Operations, Jay Kudla. “Greenhouse exemplifies that unique dedication to guest satisfaction and we have the utmost respect for their approach to farm-to-fork cuisine. Together with the creation of our own on-site herb garden we will raise the premium standard at Dell Diamond.”
“Myself and the Greenhouse Craft Food team are excited to open our second location in partnership with the Round Rock Express and Dell Diamond,” comments Snow. “Our goal from day one has been to provide our community with healthier local food options and our new location at the Intel Club will allow us to reach more fans and families that are looking for just that. Plus, we’re all big fans of The Express!”
Membership is required to the Intel Club and can be purchased with season ticket packages. Day passes are also available for single game tickets. Greenhouse Craft Food will also provide in-seat service to fans in the Dell Premium seats.
The Express opens the 2016 season on the road before returning to Dell Diamond for the home opener on Friday, April 15 against the Iowa Cubs. For more information on the Express, visit www.RoundRockExpress.com or call (512) 255-2255. Keep up with the Express on Facebook and Twitter.
