Cleveland Browns Hospitality Group



Big news for Cleveland today. We might not be winning the Super Bowl but things are looking up for the food scene for our Browns games. If you are lucky enough to have club or suite access, or you book a private function, you will get to experience some of the best chefs our city has to offer. Jonathan SawyerRocco Whalen, and Cleveland's sweetheart Michael Symon team up with Aramark as Cleveland Browns Hospitality Group to offer a premium dining experience for these lucky fans. Check out these article excerpts from Crains Business Cleveland:

The Cleveland Browns are making changes to their catering offerings in the premium seating areas of Cleveland Browns Stadium, and the new provider will bring with it the cachet of a few local heavy hitters.
Already with presences at Quicken Loans Arena, Michael Symon and Rocco Whalen will be featured in Aramark's new offerings in the suites and club level at Browns Stadium. They'll be joined by fellow well-known restaurateur Jonathon Sawyer.

The Browns have formed a new company, Cleveland Browns Hospitality Group, that will feature another of Mr. Symon's B Spot restaurants, a duplicate of Mr. Whalen's Rosie and Rocco's restaurant at the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, and Sawyer's Street Frites, which will feature the signature item from Mr. Sawyer's Greenhouse Tavern on East Fourth Street in downtown Cleveland.

“These guys are Cleveland champions and Cleveland sports fans,” Mr. Kearney said. “We've been discussing different opportunities with them for a number of years.” 

Mr. Kearney said the company's goal is to have the new spaces finished by July 29, when country music stars Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw play at the stadium.

I'm really excited that the Browns are keeping our food local and unique. What other stadium has an Iron Chef on their roster? With only 10 home games for the Browns, special events will be the best way to experience this Trifecta of Tastiness.
