BankAtlantic Center Adds Exclusive "Club Red" for Those Wanting High-End Dining With Their Hockey
Sea scallops and risotto will be part of the new "Club Red."
Chef Lucio Iaconetti has always been involved in sports. Shorty after he opened the premiere ballpark in Arlington, Texas, he became well-known for his cuisine at the Diamond Club for the Texas Ranger's Organization.
Now, he's taking on a new sports-related culinary journey as senior executive chef at the BankAtlantic Center, where his food will be showcased in a members-only private club ($8,000 and up per membership).
Sports & Entertainment's
Club Red offers members a
private lounge that even has its own entrance.
There will be a variety of food stations offering
items Iaconetti has made specifically for the lounge, including Florida rock shrimp shooters with avocado gazpacho,
pistachio-crusted black grouper, and churrasco-style filet mignon.
A large bar will take center stage, where a bartender will create signature
cocktails and hand out complimentary beer and wine.
Once you've filled your plates with food, bring your spread over to your
seat -- you'll know it's yours with the customized nameplate on the
chair. Besides getting to chow down on plenty of food while watching a
Florida Panthers game, you'll also enjoy the members lounge with HD flat
screens and WiFi. Of course, meeting
and greeting with the players on game day isn't so bad either.
