When you can get Luger's-style quarter-inch-thick bacon and a porterhouse big enough for four brought to you, well, you do it. Just make sure you have your own knives—plastic just won't cut it.
With each passing Super Bowl and each amateurish 7-layer bean dip, you've descended further into a gluttonous pit of despair. No more, we say. Some of the best restaurants in New York, from Wolfgang's to Cipriani, quietly offer delivery—and there's no better time than this Sunday to transcend tradition. Sit back, relax and let the feasting begin...
If Wolfgang's is a bit too...downtown, hit up the good sirs at Ben and Jack's for the same meat, creamed spinach and (German) potatoes uptown. Meat knows no boundaries...
It just so happens that the Sunday special at Morandi is Lasagna. We couldn't think of a more appropriate Italian tribute to the eating traditions of the Big Game. Except maybe the Sicilian-style meatballs with pine nuts and raisins.
You won't be able to get the signature cocktails, but the Chicken Paillard and crowd favorites like the Schiller's Nachos and the Chopped Liver Mousse should gloss over your attempts at mixology.
The chance to eat Cipriani's Chilean Sea Bass in old jeans is a reward in itself. We imagine it goes well with domestic beer commercials involving talking animals too.
The wine list and massive menu get chopped a little for delivery, but the best appetizers come through in all their glory, like the Roasted Marrow Bones and Warm Goat Cheese Profiteroles.
Nothing says American football like a Mexican feast. Forgo the nachos and bean dip, though, for some Lamb Barbacoa Burritos and Grilled Corn on the Cob With Chile Aioli and Queso Cotija.
Pay tribute to this East Coast showdown by going one step further East—get your hands on a hefty Peking Duck, a Maine Live Lobster and the signature Green Prawns courtesy of the former Mr. Chow chef.
For the special day in question, the good folks at Ssam Bar will break out of their no-delivery policy to bring you their crown jewel, the legendary Bo Ssam: whole roasted pork butt with bibb lettuce, rice, kimchi and sauces. Warning: these are so distractingly good, eating may cause you to miss critical plays.
