Where to Watch Super Bowl XLVIII in New York

Oh, the Super Bowl. It's being played this year just outside New York City, which means mega celebrations and mega traffic. Unless you’re the type to watch the game, the commercials and the half-time show from the comfort of home, the Super Bowl is more than just an excuse to sit in front of the TV and eat unhealthy snacks in the name of football. For those inclined to go out, it’s like, one of the biggest bar holidays of the year. So if you’re looking for somewhere to go, here are a few of our suggestions.

Fan Favorite Bars:
If you're a Seahawks or Broncos fan, cheer with your peers at the Super Bowl committee's designated "fan favorite" bars: Carlow East (1254 Lexington Ave.) for the Seahawks and Butterfield 8 (5 E 38th St.) for the Broncos. Or, but a sore loser and hang out with fans for the Giants, Jets, or any other team you root for. There are bars for that too.

The Cannibal:
The walls will be plastered with the game but the main event at the Cannibal in Hell's Kitchen might be the Mexican Feast: taco bars, chicharrons, jalapeno poppers, chips and salsa. Oh, and a Michelada, Margarita and Sangrita bar. $120 per person, all-you-can-eat. Reservations strongly recommended. (212-582-7947 or emailingcory@thecannibalnyc.com). (600 11th Ave., 212-582-7940)

The Breslin Bar & Dining Room:
Televisions, fried chicken and beer—what else do you need? And for a burger? The Breslin is famous for them and they'll probably taste even better after their beer buckets of Abita Light and Stoudts Pilsner (it's a classy place, you know?). Reservations recommended and fried chicken feasts available for groups of five or more (emailsuperbowl@thebreslin.com). (16 West 29th St.; 212-679-1939)

Loreley Restaurant & Biergarten:
The higher the score, the cheaper the beer. Loreley will pick one beer for the Seahawks and another for the Broncos and with each touchdown, the price per liter will drop by $1. There are also plenty of German brews available such as buckets of five Augustiner Edelstoff or Reissdorf Kölsch for $20. (7 Rivington Street; 212-253-7077)

Hill Country Barbecue Market: 
It's one of those places that manages to remain cavernous even when it's always busy. Watch how full they can pack the crowd in (or just have your face in a big plate of Texas-style BBQ) like a chopped brisket sandwich or Chili Rub Wings. Wing and beer specials available. Reservations are accepted. (30 W 26th St., 212-255-4544) 

Num Pang:
 And if your idea of a good time also involves your home couch, there's takeout for that. For an alternative to the submarine sandwich, Num Pang is offering a Cambodian take with pork belly, brisket, catfish, veal meatballs, hanger steak or even roasted cauliflower inside. And their aptly named Super Pang is not kidding — three feet, enough to feed around 10 with a side of slaw ($125). Preorder by January 31 for pickup. (1129 Broadway; 212-647-8886)
