Here is your ultimate NYC Super Bowl guide

Buffalo chicken meatballs — where have you been all our lives?

Where to grab a beer and watch the game

Ainsworth Park boasts a ton of TVs (65 at last count), a seated patio and quite likely a celebrity sighting or two. Expect an upscale menu, game-day specialty cocktails and a more dressed-up crowd. 111 E. 18th St., 212-673-2467

With close to 40 TVs per location, Brother Jimmy’s BBQ is the most low-key deal in town: no cover charge and no table minimums. Take-out and catering are available, too. Multiple locations, www.brotherjimmys.com

Surprising spots to get the party started

Pachanga Patterson’s Mexican spread is not exactly all-American, but their all-you-can-eat family style menu features some other favorites (including nachos, empanadas, hot buffalo wings and sliders). 33-17 31st Ave., Astoria, 718-554-0525

Pera Soho will be offering its Mediterranean fare, along with happy-hour specials, and will be serving its three-course Sunday Supper throughout the night, which includes half-priced bottles of wine. 54 Thompson St., 212-878-6305

Bowl during the Bowl at Lucky Strike, which is offering a game-day menu (including smoked wings and short rib tacos), bottomless drinks, and pingpong and pool to keep you extra entertained. 624-660 W. 42nd St., 646-829-0170

Our picks for gourmet Super Bowl take-out

The Meatball Shop is selling their balls by the bucket this weekend. Patrons choose 25 balls (pick from beef, chicken, pork, vegetable or the game-day special, buffalo chicken) and sauce (tomato, spicy pork, pesto, parmesan cream, mushroom gravy and special blue cheese dressing with Frank’s Hot Sauce).  Multiple locations, www.themeatballshop.com 

Num Pang’s Super Pang is a 3-foot sub stuffed with your items of your choice (like Hoisin veal meatballs or pulled Duroc pork). This super sub feeds 10 to 12 and comes with grilled corn on the cob. Multiple locations, www.numpangnyc.com

If you can’t make it to Tacombi’s Super Bowl party in its Fonda Nolita digs (try the spiked horchata!), you can get its Super Bowl tacos (crispy fish, short rib shrimp) and corn esquites (grilled corn in a cup) for take-out and delivery. 267 Elizabeth St., 917-727-0179

Little Muenster’s grilled-cheese packages include football-shaped sliders, gourmet potato skins (with prosciutto, pecorino and truffle salt) and bread pudding bites. 100 Stanton St., 212-203-7197

Up for some Italian delights? How about a platter of salumi ($60), formaggi ($80) or panini from Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria? 53 Great Jones St., 212-837-2622

You’ll score a touchdown with your friends if you show up to the party with football-themed Sprinkles cupcakes. $39/dozen, 780 Lexington Ave., 212-207-8375

Where to order traditional stuff

Hill Country Barbecue Market is offering up classics from its regular menu (Texas-style dry-rub brisket) and game-day deals (pit-smoked wings, links, ribs and more). 30 W. 26th St., 212-255-4544

Kutsher’s Tribeca gets in on the spirit with a 3-foot smoked meat football sub with pastrami, corned beef, turkey and Swiss on homemade challah, cut in the shape of a football. 186 Franklin St., 212-431-0606
