If you’re having friends over to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 2, they’re probably going to be expecting some snacks. For those who want to dish out more than a bag of chips and a jar of salsa, several Park Slope restaurants and markets are now taking orders.
Whether you’re looking for a traditional gut-busting 6-foot hero or platters of fancy cheese, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best bets in the area.
You still have a week (or more, in some cases) to get those orders in, and while most require you to pick them up, some do deliver.
1. Bark, 474 Bergen Street
Menu: For a gathering of 10-12 people, chose from a sweet array of options that are $40 each — nachos, 50 buffalo wings, buttermilk-marinated chicken tenders, 20 sliders, broccoli caesar salad, and cheddar-stuffed brats over sauerkraut. Or, get the $160 package that includes all that, minus the chicken tenders.
Order: Online by 9pm on February 1. Pick up only.
