Sports are back in the city, and this year, the Scotiabank Arena has a few treats up its sleeve when it comes to new menu items.

With the Toronto Maple Leafs having returned to the ice last week and the Raptors tipping off the season on their home court on Wednesday, MLSE is introducing a new lineup of tantalizing eats.

It’s been a while for Toronto sports fans, and these new dishes sure to leave you wanting more. Among the fresh foods are Toronto-based restaurants Aloette, Colibri, Cheese Boutique, and Cherry Street BBQ.

“With many businesses continuing to face challenges during this time, especially the restaurant industry, we wanted to help provide an opportunity for local Toronto restaurateurs to share their mouth-watering offerings with our fans,” said Chris Zielinski Culinary Director, MLSE.

“Together with our familiar go-to spots and new additions, Scotiabank Arena’s concession selection continues to defy the traditional idea of arena food and create exceptional culinary experiences for our fans.”

Here’s a look at what delicious eats fans can munch on and where to find them.
