Our Long Island Super Bowl Sunday Hot List [Updating]

Our Long Island Super Bowl Sunday Hot List [Updating]

This is a post from the 2012 Super Bowl – some of the restaurants noted below may have closed.

If you’re not going to a house party (or hosting one yourself) and want to watch the Giants take down the game on Super Bowl Sunday, getting out to a restaurant / bar where you can cheer on Eli with hundreds of others may not be a bad idea. We’ve compiled our list of go-to hot spots on the island where Big Blue will be front and center. [Updating until Sunday]

Kodiak’s in Farmingdale

Update: This location has closed

Original Review Here: Click!

Kodiak’s is a special spot in Suffolk County. If anyone else has more televisions, we’d certainly be surprised. The tv to person ratio is outstanding. There are projection screens and flat screens of all sizes within eyesight from every seat and each vantage point. With that many televisions, there’s no chance that you’ll miss even one play during the big game. To top the action off, Kodiak’s also has three bars within the restaurant to ensure that the drinks keep flowing before and after Big Blue takes down the Pats.

What you’ll be drinking: Blue Moon
What you’ll be eating: Loaded Nachos

Kodiak’s Restaurant & Bar
1815 Broadhollow Rd # 6

The Main Event in Plainview

The Main Event sits on Old Country Road in Plainview. Prior to its opening more than ten years ago, it was a revolving door of restaurants that could never seem to make it. The fact they’ve been around for so long is a testament to the Plainview area embracing them for what they are; a casual restaurant with a focus not only on the games, but the food as well.

The Super Bowl is sure to bring in the masses (as it is a sports bar) so we’ll cut to the chase and send some suggestions over your way on what to order.

What you’ll be drinking: Blue Point
What you’ll be eating: Steak Tidbits with Mashed Potatoes

Kansas City Smokehouse in East Meadow

Update: This location is closed.

What Kansas City Smokehouse lacks in huge tv’s everywhere it makes up for in bbq. The bbq is outstanding and this recent addition to the Long Island dining scene will keep you fed while you keep an eye on the game. There’s the assortment of flat screens on the walls of the restaurant and a few larger tv’s over the bar. You might be here for a while as the smoker is kicked into high gear, but we’re sure that they’re prepared to get you those ribs, brisket, burnt ends and chicken right on time and tender as could be.

What you’ll be drinking: We’re out of Blue references, so just avoid the Sam Adams
What you’ll be eating: Burnt Ends, Ribs and Fried Oreos (subject to availability).

You can hit up this Nesconset italian restaurant for the big game and enjoy it a few different ways. If you’re sitting at the bar during half-time, you can enjoy their free appetizers. If you want to order something a bit larger and with more flexibility, they’re offering up trays of their “NFL Menu” for $80 and half-trays for $40.

Their NFL menu, with items for $7 each (unless you go with the tray) will include Ragazzi Buffalo Wings, Nachos, Sliders, Stromboli, Fried Calamari and more.

Allegria Hotel in Long Beach

The Allegria Hotel in Long Beach is as much of a Manhattan-style hotel that you’ll find on LI. The waterfront hotel has a lot going for it these days; it’s got Atlantica, a great restaurant that is also on the boardwalk, a great bar scene and wonderful accommodations upstairs should you wish to sleep off that long night out. During the warmer months, this is one of our favorite nightlife spots to go to wind down after a long week in the office.

For Super Bowl Sunday, Allegria will be hosting a Super Bowl party featuring not only their great bar area, but also a $35 optional buffet which includes one craft beer or mixed drink with wings, vegetable crudités and chicken skewers.

Library Cafe in Farmingdale

Located on the Nassau side of Farmingdale, Library Cafe is one of the better known after-work spots on Main Street. Owned by the Lessing family, who count some of the island’s best restaurants as their own, this two-story establishment is sure to be cranking out the good times on Sunday night. For their Super Bowl specials, they’ll be offering a package for $35 that will include unlimited domestic beer and wine, a hot and cold buffet and giveaways during the game. If you’re not representing true blue on your back for the game, have no fear. They’ll be raffling off a Giants jersey during halftime, so make sure to stick around (Even when Big Blue is blowing out the Pats in the 2nd quarter).

Towline BBQ in Sagaponack

This is one of our favorite BBQ spots towards the Hamptons. Owned by the same restaurant group as famed Nick & Toni’s and La Fondita, Townline BBQ can hang with the best of them when it comes to BBQ. Their Super Bowl specials are appeasing those wishing to nosh while they drink. Beer specials will include $3 Coors Light pints and $12 pitchers. If you want to go with the tap beer (Guinness excluded), you’ll be anteing up $4 for pints and $15 for pitchers. Bar snacks available will include free popcorn and peanuts, $3 cheese nachos, $3 warm pretzels with mustard and $3 TL wings with blue cheese dressing.

Mulcahy’s in Wantagh

$50 + you = all inclusive Bud and Bud Light drafts, top shelf drinks and a tailgate buffet including wings, ribs, burgers, hot dogs, sausage and peppers and more from 6pm until the final whistle. Mulcahy’s is one of the most popular bars / music venues on the island and they’ve been rocking it out since 1965. The place is bound to be packed to the gills, so it’s a good idea to buy your tickets before the game by going to this site.

While there, you’ll be able to catch the game on any of their 10 giant HD screens. Not bad for an all you can eat and drink bonanza.

While this may not our typical spot to watch the game (it’s not a restaurant or a bar), J Barbera Tobacconist is a cigar lounge in Garden City that will have something special going on for this upcoming Super Bowl. For $40 per person, patrons will receive a free cigar, unlimited food and drink and will be able to watch the game on their 3 flat-screens, while reclining in those comfortable leather seats. On normal days, J Barbera is a full retail shop where you can buy all things tobacco. They’ll be open at 4pm, which leaves you about 2.5 hours to settle in and get ready for the game; in style.

We hope that you enjoy the game and let’s hope that Big Blue pulls off another win and we can toast them at the Canyon of Heroes next week.
