New eats at Target Field unveiled

How about a bucket of mini-meatballs or cider cocktails?

Just as there are new faces on the Minnesota Twins squad, there are also new food items debuting this season at Target Field.

The latest additions to the dining and drinking roster were unveiled Tuesday morning and include offerings from establishments right in Target Field’s neighborhood and as far afield as the Iron Range.

From far to the north in Chisholm, Minn., Valentini’s Supper Club will sell a Porketta “Slugger,” made with pork and cream cheese rolled in an egg roll and covered in red sauce.

Also new is the Valentini’s Italian burger, a meatball in patty form, grilled and topped with pepperoni, provolone cheese and house-made red sauce and served on a potato roll. Both items are available at the State Fair Classics stand.

Pinch-hitting this season for the Valentini’s mega meatball is a bucket of mini-meatballs. Think mini-donuts with more protein.

New on the dessert cart are hand-dipped cones and cups of Izzy’s ice cream inside Gate 14 near Hrbek’s 14 restaurant.

At a new Butcher and the Boar grill inside Gate 34, there will be a barbecue basket of rib tips with house-made spicy pickles, local craft beers, Knob Creek bourbon and Jim Beam cocktails. Butcher and the Boar’s downtown locale was a 2013 James Beard Award semifinalist for best new restaurant and the Star Tribune’s 2012 Restaurant of the Year.

Other new options include a smoked barbecue beef brisket sandwich, freshly carved at the Gate 6 carvers; and specialty cider cocktails at several portable carts, Hrbek’s and Town Ball Tavern.
