Bucs shine spotlight on Tampa Bay chefs during home games

Celebrity Chef Showcase is designed to tempt both food and sports fans.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are taking their love for the local restaurant scene a step further this season. During every home game at Raymond James Stadium, the new Celebrity Chef Showcase allows the team to shine a spotlight on celebrated chefs on either side of the bay.

The featured kitchen whizes have the opportunity to serve up their signature dishes at four locations inside the Tampa stadium. Celebrity Chef Showcase stations are found at the Taste of Tampa booths on the 100 level’s east and west side, plus outside of section 232 in the East Stadium Club and near the West Stadium Club center bar.

Last month, the culinary celebration started tempting both food and sports fans at the Bucs’ home opener, where ticket holders enjoyed helpings of the Messy Pig sandwich and cantina tacos from 4 Rivers Smokehouse founder John Rivers.

Which restaurants are left? Il Ritorno (Oct. 21), Brick & Mortar (Nov. 11), Mise en Place (Nov. 25), Grace (Dec. 2), Bern’s Steak House (Dec. 9) and Haven (Dec. 30).
