La Brochette
This new, upscale midtown kosher steakhouse and sushi bar is hosting its first-ever kosher Super Bowl party (we know, sushi and football, it’s an odd combo but just go with it). Game day specials include a selection of brochettes or skewered meats including beef, kafta, veal and lamb and a prime-meat sampler with a lamb chop, filet mignon, short rib and center-cut rib eye. The game will be broadcast on 55-inch flat-screen TVs around the restaurant, and a special selection of HE’BREW kosher beer will be brought in for the occasion.

RSVPs are recommended, though not required. Brochettes are $22 per serving; buy three, get one free. The prime-meat sampler is $75. 340 Lexington Ave at 39th Street, New York, NY, 212-972-2200

Gotham Burger Gotham Burger’s Manhattan location is holding an All You Can Eat and Drink Super Bowl Buffet with unlimited beer on tap for just 80 people (so make your reservations stat). Cost: $85 in advance, $100 at the door. If you’d rather munch on your snacks at home, both locations are offering take-away packages complete with game day favorites like sliders, chili, heroes and wings.

*The deadline to place orders is January 29. 726 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY, 212-335-0005; 1383 Queen Anne Rd, Teaneck, New Jersey, 201-530-7400,

There’s no deadline, but ordering early is recommended to ensure you get everything on time.

Platters range from $175-$260. 1376 Coney Island Ave., Brooklyn, NY, 718-337-8226

Prime Butcher Baker

Breads Bakery
Being a vegetarian at a Super Bowl party can be tricky. Israeli-born Breads Bakery has you covered with homemade baguette chips, toast fingers and their cheese straws (make sure to save some for yourself!). Also on offer is a bureka platter with cherry tomato salsa and tahini dip. A special buffalo crudite — complete with vegetables from the Union Square Greenmarket and blue cheese dip — is available too.
