This week, we're looking at the Super Bowl.
Whether you're rooting for the Packers or the Steelers in this Sunday's championship, there's one thing everyone can agree on: the importance of snacks during the big game. From buckets of wings during commercial breaks, to great pizza at half-time, North Haven Patch lays out the options for your gameday pig-out.
J. Roo's Restuarant: Offering a huge range of pizza options (including a lasagna pizza with mozzarella, meatballs, sausage, ricotta, parmesan cheese), and an impressive selection of submarine sandwiches, J. Roo's might be the ideal food choice for Super Bowl snackers. With delivery running until 11:oo p.m., you might even have a chance to order seconds before the two-minute warning.
Luigi's Apizza: While thin-crusted apizza is their specialty, Luigi's has many options for catering, including full, family-sized portions of pasta favorites like baked ziti, penne a la vodka, and lasagna, are bound to please hungry party guests. Also available are buffalo wings and chicken tenders, and a selection of gluten-free pies.
Liuzzi Cheese: They don't deliver, but you won't find a better sandwich in North Haven—heck, you won't find a better sandwich anywhere—than at Liuzzi Cheese. From the hearty bread, to the fresh mozzarella, to the glorious cuts of meat, you can't go wrong. Would I rather go to the real Super Bowl or sit at home with one of these sandwiches? Come on, it's a no-brainer.
New Great Wall: It may not be the obvious choice for Super Bowl cuisine, but great Chinese food can stack up against burgers, beer, and wings any day of the year. New Great Wall offers a great selection of Chinese favorites, noodles, General Tso's chicken, and spare ribs to go alongside your typical faves.
Casa Fajita: Want to spice up your Super Bowl party? Serving a mouth-watering selection of Mexican dishes like burritos, chimichangas, guacamole, and classic football staple nachos, Casa Fajita guarantees that even if the game gets boring, the buffet never will.
