Where to watch the Super Bowl in New York City
This NoMad bar seemlessly combines the most cherished elements of a speakeasy (cocktails worth imbibing) and a go-to sportsbar (LED flat-screen TVs for watching that can’t-miss game). You’ll feel at home here whether you order an Old Fashioned or a beer to pair with karaage fried chicken bites, spicy honey pizza and truffle fries.
An impressive special, Tre Modi, combines three hits from Alidoro in one three-foot long sandwich: The Mona Lisa (fresh mozzarella, artichokes, eggplant and another semi-soft Italian cheese), The Romeo (a half meat and vegetarian sandwich which includes smoked chicken breast and arugula) and The Bomba (a full-on meat option teeming with mortadella, salami, ham and more). The $99 sandwich feeds 15-20 people and is only available at the Rockefeller Center location. Call 646-692-4330 at extension 2 to order.
Chicken parm pizza—but make it with buffalo wing style. Only available for takeout on game day, this Buffalo Chicken Parm Pizza ($76) swaps out tomato sauce for buffalo wing sauce and topped with four different types of cheese, some veg and a good drizzle of Gorgonzola-buttermilk dressing. Orders will only be taken through January 31st.
We’ve all eaten wings in questionable, dark bars where you don’t want to go all Portlandia to figure out the povenance of your chicken. Forget all that when you order the Maple Chipotle Chicken Wings from Fields Good Chicken, where you know you’re getting wings from responsibly-raised poultry with no antibiotics. There are no screens here for the game (but your apartment is better than that unforgettable dive).
This new and handsome Lower East Side bar isn’t your divey watering hole but the prices come close. A big screen will be set up at one of the bars in this space, which used to be the popular Spitzer’s Corner. Beers from San Francisco and Kansas City will be $5 and there will be a $7 food menu.
Pizza, guac, nachos, pigs in a blanket and chicken wings are all staples of the Super Bowl weekend diet.

No matter the team you’re rooting for, everyone will find something to like about this while watching the game on one of three screens.
You can watch Super Bowl LIV on a big screen as you devour $1 oysters, clam strips, Old Bay wings, crab dip, fried calamari and potato wedge fries. If you'd rather take the pristine seafood home from the only seafood vendor inside The Market Line, a shrimp cocktail platter goes for $30.
On the Upper East Side, this craft beer hall will offer a special menu consisting of foot long all-beef hot dogs ($10), BBQ smoked pulled pork on a Hawaiian roll ($36 for a dozen) and team pride jello shos ($5).
The $48 buffet including various antipasti, buttermilk fried chicken wings, pulled pork and rosemary potatoes with pitchers of beers will keep you entertained throughout this big game day.
There are seven high-def televisions at this bustling bar on Avenue A where you'll good deals on drinks, from $3 Jello shots to $23 for a bucke of 8 Miller Highlife. To soak up all that booze, you'll find Southern-style wings ($12), queso fundido ($14), sliders ($15, beef and chicken), baby back ribs ($16) and steak nachos ($18).
