The Super Bowl is right around the corner (February 5, to be exact). Whether you know who’s playing or are blissfully unaware, you still have to eat.
Here, how some restaurants and shops are making the most of the day for all of us—fans and skeptics alike.
The lobster roll purveyor is doing a deconstructed lobster roll for their Super Bowl special. A minimum order goes for $150 and includes sweet lobster, shrimp, or crab meat, secret seasoning, lemon butter and a dash of mayo, all for you to put together as appetites dictate.
White Gold Butchers
The brand-new meat-purveyor by chef April Bloomfield has a ton of specials on offer, from a $20 quart of chili to $12 per pint of pulled pork to $18 per pound for smoked pork spare ribs. They suggest placing your orders either in store or over the phone (212-362-8734), which you can do right up until game day—or until supplies run out.
This East Village spot is going overboard on bacon for the big game at their pregame brunch. Expect chicharron nachos, maple bacon ancho wings and even bacon strips with mayonnaise.
Chef Dale Talde’s eponymous restaurant will add some Korean fried chicken and crab fried rice to their brunch menu for the day, along with a tailgate-inspired dim sum menu. For those trying to feed a crowd, you can order buckets of fried chicken and kung pao chicken wings by calling the restaurant or through Caviar.
Talde’s Manhattan restaurant will be doing a $75 per person all you can eat menu, which you can buy tickets for if what you’re after is pepperoni pizza, nachos, buffalo wings and draft beer (and isn’t that what we all want?).
Root & Bone
Here you can choose from a two packages, serving 4 or 12 people, respectively, as well as pick up some à la carte options. Whole chickens, biscuits, macaroni and cheese, barbecue short rib sliders, and pimento cheese and country ham–stuffed biscuits are just some of the options.
