The Cleveland Browns powered their way to a 14-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. Their victory was fueled, it turns out, by one of Minnesota's signature restaurants.
Former Vikings assistant coach Kevin Stefanski is currently head coach of the Browns. And according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Stefanski got a Twin Cities hotspot to cater the team meal Saturday.
That restaurant? Revival Fried Chicken, the highly-acclaimed, successful restaurant that first opened in Minneapolis in 2015, and was apparently one of Stefanski's "go-to spots" when he lived in Minnesota.
Revival hasn't commented, other than to share Pelissero's tweet on its Instagram stories (which we managed to catch before it and Facebook went down Monday).
A spokesperson for Twist Davis Group, which owns Revival, confirmed to Bring Me The News the restaurant did cater dinner for the Browns the day before the game.
"They enjoyed fried chicken, ribs, mac & cheese, mashed potatoes and collard greens," the spokesperson added.
Considering the game's outcome, maybe it's time for the Vikings to rethink their weekly donut club and instead work in some Saturday fried chicken from Revival?
Just a thought.
