The Caviar Party Starts Now

The Super Bowl is almost here, and with it: the chance to achieve total snacking domination. And while there are plenty of great utility players on your radar (nachos always wear their game face), this might be the year to bring in a ringer. Like a lot of caviar. Which, incidentally, also works well on nachos. Ah, teamwork.

THE TAPAS

Batali and Bastianich Are Back at It Again

We’ve got to assume you’ve been to La Sirena—that giant restaurant inside the Maritime Hotel from the Batali and Bastianich crew we dubbed the Italian spot of the year, this time last year. (Places that look like this demand such words.) Well, they’ve just opened a tapas bar inside of the barroom. and it’s where you’ll quell any desires for patatas bravas with sea urchin, lamb ribs with pickled baby eggplant or other Spanish-leaning sustenance on small plates.

Opens Jan 11, Tapas Bar at La Sirena, 88 9th Ave (between 16th and 17th), 212-977-6096

It’s a Good Time to Stock Up on Todd Snyder
THE SALE

It’s a Good Time to Stock Up on Todd Snyder

Why? Because they’ve got all these printed tees, alpaca-silk sweaters and textured cardigans at up to 50% off. That’s why.

Ongoing, Todd Snyder, 25 Madison Sq N (at Madison), 917-242-3482

Friday
New, from the Guy Behind Melt Shop
THE SANDWICHES

New, from the Guy Behind Melt Shop

Roasted steak and salsa verde. Chili-mustard pork belly and Asian pickles with koji mayo. Cold charred chicken with apple-date slaw. This is what happens when the creator of Melt Shop teams up with the creator of Bark Hot Dogs, and it is glorious.

Now open, Make Sandwich, 135 4th Ave (between 13th and 14th), 212-398-2602

Roberta’s, for All Your Pizza and Dancing Needs
THE TIKI

Roberta’s, for All Your Pizza and Dancing Needs

All this month and next, Roberta’s tiki bar will be hosting a new party every Friday. This week, it’s where you’ll go for hip-hop, trap, dark wave and a live performance. Next week, it’s where you’ll go for some classic disco and house. Or pizza. You can always still just go for pizza.

Jan 13, 9pm-2am, Roberta’s, 261 Moore St (between Bogart and White), Brooklyn, 718-417-1118

Saturday
Oh, God, It’s an Apple Pie Corn Dog
THE DOMINIQUE ANSEL

Oh, God, It’s an Apple Pie Corn Dog

When Chef Dominique collaborates with anybody, you go check it out. When he joins forces with Jeremiah Stone and Fabian von Hauske from Wildair and Contra to create an apple pie corn dog with roasted parsnip ice cream, that’s no exception. Obviously.

Jan 14-16, noon until sold out, $7, Dominique Ansel Kitchen, 137 7th Ave S (between W 10th and Charles), 212-242-5111

Sunday
A Bottomless Boozy Brunch, with Jazz
THE BRUNCH

A Bottomless Boozy Brunch, with Jazz

It’s Sunday. You want brunch. Specifically, one that involves endless Bloody Marys, frittatas with caramelized onions and golden potatoes, and a live band playing jazz from the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s. You head to Delilah. All is well and good in the world.

Sat-Sun starting Jan 15, noon-6pm, Delilah, 155 Rivington St (between Clinton and Suffolk), 212-777-2520
