Five New Spots to Watch the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl. You’re watching it. And if you’re smart, you’re watching it at one of the city’s shiniest, newest temples of sports and imbibery. Speaking of which, here they are. Uncanny.

THE EAST VILLAGE OPTION

Boulton & Watt

The grub: Pickled pineapple and habanero, chicken pot pie and barbecue Bloodys.
The view: Scattered flat-screens that emerge from behind wood and steel panels.
Key to victory: Reserve the back-right booth, unveil your own private flat-screen and receive of the two in-table beer taps.

Boulton & Watt, 5 Ave A (at Houston St), 646-490-6004, see the slideshow

THE CHAMPAGNE-AND-FRIED-CHICKEN OPTION

Willow Road

The grub: Duck confit nachos and pigs in a blanket, on two.
The view: Four wood-framed, 65-inch screens. Yeah, those are TVs.
Key to victory: Bring at least five people. That’s when buckets of buttermilk fried chicken and bottles of Veuve are possible. It’s the Haloti Ngata diet.
411:
Willow Road, 85 10th Ave (between 15th and 16th St), 646-484-6566, reserve here, see the slideshow

THE MASSIVE-PROJECTOR OPTION

Sanctuary Ultra Lounge

The grub: Fish tacos, filet mignon and beer buckets.
The view: You’ll reserve a booth for up to 20. There’s a ring of mirrors that’s actually 16 55-inch screens. There’s a 110-inch projector that’s actually a 110-inch projector.
Key to victory: Head to the ski-lodge roof for postgame festivities. Consider it overtime.

THE GRILLED-CHEESE OPTION

The Windsor

The grub: Truffle grilled cheese to soak up cocktail-shot flights.
The view: Flat-screens from every angle, tucked seamlessly between vintage sneakers and photos.
Key to victory: Explaining the zone read to the Bulgarian model who ambled in here looking for the hotel lobby.

THE WILLIAMSBURG OPTION

The grub: Bourbon, short rib chili and Danish ribs (which may be against the league’s substance abuse policies).
