Houston area media are invited to attend a food tasting event at the new Taste of EaDo inside BBVA Compass Stadium.
The event will begin with a brief tour of the new area from Dynamo president Chris Canetti, followed by an opportunity to taste the new menu items a day before the Dynamo open their season. Chefs from stadium hospitality partner Levy Restaurants will also be in attendance to explain the new menu items in both English and Spanish.
The Taste of EaDo takes on the name of the neighborhood that the Dynamo call home and each of the food offerings takes its inspiration from the bars and restaurants that surround the stadium.
