Got Super Bowl tix? What about a dinner rez?

Most of us Hawks fans will be watching the Super Bowl right here at home. For the fortunate few who score tickets, getting dinner reservations in New York City might be even harder.

Tables at Manhattan’s most celebrated restaurants are tough to secure on an average weekend. If places like Eleven Madison Park, Le Bernardin, Daniel, Del Posto or Per Se are on your wish list, you’d better know someone who knows someone, otherwise you can fuggedaboudit.

Not to worry though.  The “city that never sleeps” has thousands of places to eat. For those who are equal parts football fan and foodie, I offer,  in no particular order, a few personal favorites, where game-goers might be able to snag a last minute reservation or even dare to show up without one. Consider it a mere slice of what the Big Apple has to offer.

Estela—Fine cocktails and boldly conceived small plates from Uruguayan-born chef Ignacio Mattos.

Hearth—Marco Canora’s soulful, contemporary take on Italian cuisine is matched by Paul Grieco’s astonishingly broad beverage list.

Annisa—Anita Lo’s spectacular Asian-inflected food suits this serene West Village dining room.
