The Warriors new San Francisco arena is under construction and the team has announced information about the culinary vendors that will provide concessions. Although there will be a typical spread of game day eats like hot dogs and nachos, five local Bay Area restaurants will have dedicated areas for food. Bakesale Betty, Tacolicious, Sam’s Chowder House, Hot Dog Bill’s Burger Dog, and Big Nate’s BBQ will be available when the stadium opens for the 2019-2020 season. Bon Appétit Management Company will oversea the food and beverage service at the Chase Center along with Levy, the Warriors current partner who manage things at Oracle Arena. There will also be 100,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space available—but no tenants have signed up yet.
