Football fans can celebrate more than just the return of the Lions this fall as Ford Field is reopening for the season with a whole slew of offerings from local Detroit restaurants and bars. Levy Restaurants, the concessionaire responsible for the Brooklyn-based offerings at New York City's Barclay's Center, completely revamped the concessions this season in an attempt to support local businesses and showcase the offerings of the region. Now on offer:

· Billy Sims BBQ: bbq sandwiches, ribs, Billy's Beans from the Lions alum
· Slow's To Go: Slow's To Go favorites and draft beer (now offered to all fans, not only on the Club Level)
· Pegasus: gyros, Greek salads, spinach pies from the historic Greektown joint
· American Coney Island: Coney Islands
· Michigan Craft Beer: selections from Bell's, Kuhnhenn, Detroit Brewing Company, Atwater, Liberty Street and Dragonmead
· Sugar House: Cocktails from the Corktown favorite are now in the Club Level
· Russian Street Deli: favorites from the Eastern Market veteran, now in the Club Level
· Zingerman's Creamery: gelato and sorbet, only served to club seat and suite holders
· Corridor Sausage: handcrafted and artisan meats, available in the Club Level
· Good People Popcorn: The Bricktown purveyor now serves popcorn in the club level
· McClure's: the pickle producer will serve its Bloody Mary mix throughout the stadium
Meanwhile, a caravan of food trucks will park on Brush Street before all home games to feed the pre-game crowds. Says Joe Nader, executive chef with Levy Restaurant, to the News, "Nowhere else in the city can you get a slice of Detroit like this." Check out the Lions' official site to see the full run down.
