The $507 million Golden 1 Center continues to move the ball toward becoming a first-class food court by the time it opens as the Sacramento Kings’ new home in October.

Joining the culinary roster will be three more top-tier teammates – Mulvaney’s Building & Loan, Petra Greek and the Mikuni restaurant group. They will join four groups that also have committed to serving quality food to the expected throngs – the Paragary Restaurant Group, Selland Family Restaurants, Star Ginger and LowBrau Bierhall.

“Fans and visitors will see the strong influence that Sacramento has on Golden 1 Center,” said Kings president Chris Granger in a statement issued Monday. “These local restaurants strengthen our homegrown food and beverage program. There isn’t another arena where fans can find their favorites from their community next to classic arena fare.”

“The B&L is delighted to help bring the delicious bounty of the Central Valley to the fans at Golden 1 Center,” said B&L chef and co-owner Patrick Mulvaney in a statement.

The Kings and food-service giant Legends Hospitality have said they are jointly dedicated to “source ingredients within 150 miles of the arena and develop sustainable programs and policies throughout all arena operations.”

“Each of these restaurants align with our goal of having high-quality food, all while being mindful of our region and environment,” said Golden 1 Center executive chef and Legends Hospitality general manager Michael Tuohy in a statement. “Working with like-minded partners ensures that we’ll have a showcase of Sacramento cuisine each day.”

Between the seven restaurants, the collective menu will offer wood-fired pizza, wurst, banh mi sandwiches, hamburgers, chicken wings, gyro sandwiches, grilled meats, pork sandwiches, sushi, nigiri and more.
