This weekend, MetLife Stadium, located a short distance from New York City, will host the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos in one of the largest sporting events of the year – Super Bowl XLVIII.
Football fanatics and tourists alike will flock to NYC, and even if you’re not one of the lucky fans going to the game, the city is a great place to get your fix of tailgating food favorites – from hot dogs and burgers to pizza and sandwiches, NYC is chock-full of places to eat the day of the big game. To help you choose, we’ve picked out a few of NYC’s best eateries, all of which will be featured in our Food Paradise episodes scheduled to air on Sunday:
Where better place to eat on Super Bowl Sunday than at one of the “manliest restaurants” in NYC? While they’re known for their pastrami sandwiches, Katz’s Delicatessen cooks up a variety of New York-style food including hot dogs, burgers and subs. Check their website for information about catering and their Sunday Football Package! Watch Katz’s at 2|1c on Manliest Restaurants 2.
When you visit NYC, you’ll more than likely be partying like a pop star, so why not eat like one? Decorated from floor to ceiling with pop art, Pop Burger, located in the heart of the city, is a burger lover’s paradise often frequented by celebrities such as Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z. Pop Burger also caters within the city, so if you don’t want to miss the game, they’ll bring the burgers to you! See why Pop Burger is really “popping” on Hamburger Paradise at 3|2c.
Totonno’s Pizzeria Napolitana
Just as a trip to NYC isn’t complete without a visit to Times Square, it also isn’t complete without experiencing a taste of the city’s best New York-style pizza. Totonno’s Pizzeria has been serving up award-winning pizza since it opened in 1924, and is considered one the oldest family-owned pizzerias in America. Enjoy dining in, or get take-out to enjoy at home while watching the game. You can see more of Totonnos’s on Pizza Paradise 2 at 5|4c.
Located in Midtown, Carnegie Deli is a true staple of the NYC food experience. Their 1-lb. pastrami sandwiches are one of their most requested menu options, in addition to their New York-style cheesecake. Check out their website for special Game Day and catering menus. Get a glimpse at the deli’s gargantuan sandwiches on Deli Paradise at 8|7c.
