Ah, Super Bowl Sunday. It's one of the best times of the year for intense sports fans – and for the rest of us, it's the pop culture Olympics with hilarious commercials and incredible Half Time performances.
Super Bowl LV will be one of the most historic yet, not only because it's happening in the middle of a pandemic, but also because it's the first to occur between the two previous Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (formerly the New England Patriots) and Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.
No matter which team you’re rooting for, one thing is certain: you need a deliciously-massive spread of food.
We’ve curated a list of the best Super Bowl dining options for New Yorkers to enjoy this game. Whether you’re craving a juicy burger and onion rings, want to dine outdoors or need vegan options to host your friends, we’ve got you covered.
Get ready for a gut buster. The Food Crate brings white cloth, restaurant-quality food right to your door, and their Super Bowl Crate features a curated smorgasbord of hickory-smoked chicken wings, pulled pork, wagyu kobe sliders, beef tenderloin skewers, buffalo chicken queso, longhorn cowboy brisket chili and more. As if that wasn't enough, add-ons include desserts, appetizers, hickory-smoked ribs, cheddar jalapeno smoked sausage and others. The touch down crate feeds six to 10 people and costs $200.
Elegant Affairs Caterers is offering a Football Party Box with tortilla chips, mini sirloin sliders, chipotle-rubbed chicken quesadillas, kobe beef franks, slow-smoked barbecue pulled pork, buffalo wings, St. Louis pork ribs, three-cheese macaroni and cheese, and more.
