More Info:

For USA vs.Portugal, we are salivating over this authentic Portuguese menu that is Mediterranean cuisine at its best, and like the people - warm, vibrant, and a little mysterious. The roots of Portuguese food lie in both native peasant cookery and the ingredients obtained through trade routes established many centuries ago. Portugal's history is married to the sea. Known for its early explorers who navigated far away continents, modern Portugal is shaped by the exotic goods, foods, and spices traders brought back over centuries. Please make your reservations for the Portuguese menu by THU, 5PM

Carry-away, in the Pavilion, in two options:

  • 6PM - 7PM: to enjoy during the second half of the match, present your ticket at the caterer's food station in the Pavilion, to carry away your order to your seats. Lawn & Pavilion seating sold separately, by reservation.
  • 7:30PM - 8PM: to enjoy with the teams, immediately following the trophy presentation - seating limited, tables seat 4 at the Patio Lounge.

Catered by the renowned Portugalia Marketplace, the Portuguese menu choices are:

    • Appetizer Combo: 2 Pasteis Bacalhau: deep fried, stuffed, flaky pastry filled with codfish, a popular street food, like patties or empenadas + 2 Rissois de camarao - shrimp turnovers, a beloved snack in Portugal, like toasted ravioli - half-moon shaped croquettes filled with shrimp, then breaded and deep-fried.
    • Shrimp Mozambique, is a favorite in Portugal, inspired by the flavors of Mozambique, a former African colony, featuring Shrimp cooked in garlic butter, and layers of flavor develop with Azorean Acafroa spice blend of safflower, paprika, lemon peel, black pepper, and garlics, and finished with lemon juice. Served with rice.
    • Carne de Porco Alentejana is a pork dish with potatoes and clams, a traditional favorite found on every restaurant menu in Portugal.
