Chef Luis bar manager Claudio Sottile says he’s seen enough patrons come to the Elm Street restaurant to watch sports on 60-inch flatscreens to try something new this February: Do something special for Super Bowl Sunday.
Kickoff for the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. The game, airing from New Orleans on CBS, will include all those new ads plus a halftime show with Beyonce, who follows in the grand tradition of past acts Madonna, The Black Eyed Peas, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.
Beer and wine specials, complimentary snacks and a full menu option are all planned for Sunday during a special 4 to 6:30 p.m. “happy hour” at Chef Luis.
Here’s a list of more great options here in New Canaan—please, if you are a business owner planning something special and are not yet listed here, just either email me before 8 p.m. Friday (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post your plans in a comment below and I will add it to this article:
- Cherry Street East (the New Canaan institution already is the town's favorite spot to celebrate St. Patrick's Day): Specials on wings, draft beer and pitchers of Bud Lite (the Super Bowl catering menu also includes chili, nachos, cheeseburger bites and wings platters)
- Gates (which is the town's favorite Mother's Day spot): Beer specials, and specials on apps like wings and potato skins
- Joe’s Pizza (a local favorite for readers and reviewers): Specials on pizza, combo app platters, potato skins, wings and heroes and mac & cheese wedges
- New Canaan Pizza (which gets outstanding customer reviews, including from the author—try the eggplant and onion, unbelievable): Specials on chicken wings, pizza and wedges
Note: Tequila Mockingbird chef/owner Paul Mauk says he’s expecting a lot of to-go orders for guacamole (feeds three). Personally I love the meatloaf and long have wished they'd bring back the Cowboy Pork Chops!
Whatever you're planning, enjoy Super Bowl XLVII—that's "47" (thank you Mrs. Berry, my seventh-grade Latin teacher at Saxe).
