Ultimate NYC Super Bowl Takeout Guide

By Zagat Staff  |  January 27, 2014

There’s only one week left until the Seahawks and the Broncos battle it out in New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, which means that from now until February 2, NYC will be packed with droves of ticket-holding tourists. We've already put together some of the best places to watch - or avoid watching - the game here. But if you just want to stay at home, we’ve listed some of the most delicious game-day take-out options we found this side of the Hudson. We’re talking Pok Pok’s addictive fish-sauce wings and glazed Dr. Pepper lamb ribs from Momofuku Ma Pêche. Sound good so far? Then keep reading. - Jasmin Sun
