|There's an awesome Super Bowl deal at Eataly this year|
Bark Hot Dogs: This Park Slope hot doggery is teaming up with Sixpoint to take the pressure of hosting your own Super Bowl party off your hands with their all-you-can-eat-and-drink “tailgate,” which doesn’t end until the Gatorade gets dumped. And if you do plan to watch the big game from your very own man cave, you can choose to have their grub catered – with options like wings, hot dogs (of course), nachos, sausages and sliders ($75 per person all-you-can-eat-and-drink; 718-789-1939).
Birreria: If you want to go upscale for the big game, the deal at Birreria on Eataly's rooftop is legitimately awesome. $100 (tip included!) gets you all the Moretti beer you can drink along with unlimited food for five hours. You can watch the game on eight flat screen TV's while nibbling on goodies like crispy chicken wings with lemon honey glaze. Reserve your spot by emailing email@example.com (212-937-8910).
Bowlmor Lanes: Instead of staying seated the entire game, come out to this Union Square bowling alley and bowl while you watch the Bowl – pun intended. Your host will be providing unlimited bowling, beer and food (during halftime). It can’t be Super Bowl without wings, mini corn dogs and sandwiches, right ($44 per person; 110 University Place; 212-255-8188)?
Carmine’s: Not sure what you got yourself into when you offered to host Super Bowl at your place this year? Fear not, the chefs at this legendary Italian have got you covered, and they deliver! Options include spicy chicken Scarpariello wings, marinated for 24 hours with herbs, lemon and garlic before tossed in their spicy signature sauce, cold Italian combinations, chicken parmigiana, Philly cheesesteak and party trays with choices like baked ziti, lasagna, eggplant parmigiana and sausage and peppers delivered right to your door (multiple locations).
Ditch Plains: At both locations of Marc Murphy’s popular surf-style fish shack, game day viewers can cheer for their favorite NY team while chowing down on football snacks like jalapeno and cheddar tater tots, spicy wings, crab dip and nachos with the works. Plan on bringing the kids along? They can feast on their very own finger-foods like crispy chicken fingers, cheesy quesadillas and the ever popular Ditch Dog (multiple locations).
Hill Country: The barbecue marketplace will show the game on their big-screen TVs while offering specials to supplement their regular menu. Diners can enjoy 12 beers and 50 wings for $75 or a massive 32 oz. Labatt Blue for $15 (212-255-4544).
La Gazzetta: This Meatpacking café will show the Bowl on their movie-sized screen and serve buckets of beer along with Italian specialties like sausage and peppers and spaghetti and meatballs ($35 per person; 212-924-5559).
Loreley: Enjoy watching the Giants return to the Super Bowl at both of these brauhaus locations where they’ll be pouring beer specials all night – each touchdown Big Blue scores subtracts another dollar off your liter of beer! While you’re there, ask about their German-style hot wings tossed in housemade curry and mustard sauces (212-253-7077).
Neely’s: Don’t feel like firing up the grill in these frigid temps? This down-home barbecue parlor doesn’t blame you. That’s why they’ve taken it upon themselves to provide you with a tail-gating menu you can enjoy right from your very own bar stool. With menu items like applewood smoked chicken wings with chipotle barbecue sauce and pulled beer can chicken sliders with white barbecue sauce, you’ll be happy you stepped out of your man cave to watch this big game. Oh, and don’t forget to order some crispy potato skins filled with slow smoked pulled pork and topped with smoked gouda cheese, dubbed Neely’s own “pig skins” (212-832-1551).
Parm: This retro red-sauce Italian hot spot in NoLita is offering three-foot Super Bowl heros for $40 each as well as Super Bowl "make your own sandwich" platters for $80 (chicken parm or peppers and onions). Not enough food? There's a Giants Party package available for $175, which includes one chicken parm platter, a sausage and onions platter and one Italian combo Super Bowl hero. Limited quantities are available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your grub.
Virgil’s Real Barbecue: These barbecue gurus know that Super Bowl can’t be complete without some good ol’ grilling, so they’re offering a take-out and delivery menu that party people won’t be able to pass up. Choose from barbecue wings, dry-rubbed, slow-smoked and grilled, buffalo chicken hero platter, fried chicken, pulled pork and beef brisket - and tell your vegan friends to bring their own veggie platter (152 W. 44th St.; 212-921-9494).
