6 Spots That Make Last Minute Super Bowl Party Planning Easy
Still haven't figured out the food situation for your Super Bowl party? Before heading to the bodega for the last bag of Sabor de Soledad (R.I.P. 30 Rock ), enlist the help of some professionals and take out an epic feast of game-time classics. These kitchens are still receiving orders for Sunday but their food supplies are running low -- quickly -- so make arrangements ASAP. Of course if all else fails, you could always make a move to one of these 18 places.
Here's our last ditch Super Bowl food guide.
Parm: Before everyone starts making a beeline for Carbone, head to this designer sandwich shop for the works. Ask for the Super Bowl Package and score chicken or meatball heroes, Mario's lasagna, Sunday salad, and a whole coffee cake. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bon Chon Chicken: Because if you're ordering wings from anywhere else, you're doing it wrong. Break away from the sports bar standard Buffalo sauce and order the addictive and sticky spicy soy and garlic chicken. The K-town locale will only acknowledge pre-orders for game day takeout, so call in advance to reserve your wings. 212-308-8810
Chipotle: Guacamole? Check. Chips? Check? A free hand for beer? Check, check. The fast casual Mexican chain will be serving "burritos by the box," and can be made with meat, vegetarian, or both. Download an order form at Chipotle.com or in-house at any location.
The Meatball Shop: Enjoy making ball jokes as much as the owners of this multi-location restaurant do? Great! Order the Bucket 'O Balls: 25 beef, chicken (including a Super Bowl special buffalo chicken option), pork, or vegetable balls. Visit themeatballshop.com or any location to place an order.
New York Beverage: Forget the bottles and cans and order a keg from these Bronx-based distributors. Their list boasts over 300 varieties of beer including Domestic, German, English, and Mexican options. Know this: the company delivers on Saturdays, so make space in your fridge (or back porch) until game time. 718-401-7700
Baked by Melissa: Dessert may be a Super Bowl afterthought, but it shouldn't be forgotten completely. The one-bite cupcakes from this Soho-based brand will offset all the salt you ate earlier in the evening (that's how a balanced diet works, right?). 49ers fans can order a box of red velvet bites with chocolate frosting and gold dust, while those rooting for the Ravens can score mini chocolate cakes with purple and yellow icing. Or make half orders of both options and see which team gets devoured first. bakedbymelissa.com
