Where to Watch the Superbowl This Sunday

Both diehard Packers and Steelers fans in NYC will agree: NYC is the place to be to enjoy the game and chow down on a hearty meal on Superbowl Sunday. Here is a selection of NYC restaurant offering front-row TV-viewing seats to Superbowl XLV.




Upper West Side and Midtown

Fans whose traditional football menu revolves around chicken wings will feel right at home at Carmine’s with their acclaimed spicy scarpariello chicken wings.  Add to that the TVs in the bar area and the restaurant's enormous family-style portions of hearty Italian fare, and you have a recipe for football fun.  Or bring the party home with Carmine’s famous pasta and meatball trays, or a pile of Italian, chicken parmigiana and Philly cheesesteak subs, priced by the foot. www.carminesnyc.com 

Carmine's, NYC
2450 Broadway (UWS), 212-362-2200;  200 West 44th Street (Midtown), 212-221-3800

Times Square

Kosher foodies and wine drinkers will love the Theatre District’s Clubhouse Café for a fun sports bar atmosphere.  Classic fare ranges from burgers and foot-long hot dogs to fried chicken and mashed potatoes, along with a not-so-classic chocolate salami dessert (as well as other sweets for the less adventurous). www.clubhousecafe.net

Meatpacking District

Those hoping to mingle with sports and film celebrities should venture to the new SNAP (Sports Nightlife And Pastime) on 14thStreet. This always-packed spot has a vintage ambiance and a 30-foot hand-carved bar.  The state-of-the-art 20-foot long LED tri-color ticker provides constant game updates so fans won’t miss a thing while watching one of the 16 large, high-definition flat-screens. SNAP is offering drink specials as well for the big game, which will undoubtedly add a spark to the communal “Face-Off” table, where opposing teams’ fans sit on either side of the table and literally face as they party. www.snapsportsbar.com
