Because sometime you’ve got to shake it up, here are our favorite picks for Westchester carry-out orders beyond the usual laissez ‘fare.’
937 Palmer Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.500.5029
186 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains; 914.397.9406
Upgrade from pigs in a blanket. Listen we’ve got no problem with pastry-wrapped mini-dogs, but if you want to go big for the big game, consider ordering from Walter’s instead. The Mamaroneck and White Plains locations take large pre-orders (typically 20+ dogs, fries, etc.) so you can have puppy dogs, singles with mustard, all the curly fries, and plenty of football-shaped potato puffs — they’re the favorite Super Bowl order — in time for kickoff. Bonus: orders are available for delivery to some locations via Uber Eats and/or GrubHub.
125 Westchester Ave, White Plains; 914.202.2822
Be a little cheesy. Grilled cheese is the ultimate in casual comfort food, but making them for a crowd isn’t that practical. Enter Melt Shop’s catering boxes. Get 18 sandwiches — truffle melts, maple-bacon, buffalo chicken, roasted veggie, and more — for $165. Plus, there’s more on the menu like loaded tots, chicken tenders drenched in Mike’s Hot Honey, Nutella milkshakes, and buckets of pickles (because, why not?).
16 Harwood Ct, Scarsdale; 914.725.0555
‘Poke’ fun at the competition. Finding something healthier to balance out all the chips, dips, wings, and football-friendly foods can be a challenge. Our solution is to go with something trendy and fun like poke from regional chain Bango Bowls. Catering packages start at $13/person for a minimum of eight people, and include rice, one protein, five toppings (everything from pineapple and jalapeño to sweet onions and ginger), and two sauces.
*Revenge BBQ is unfortunately closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but hopes to reopen soon.*
48 Main St, Irvington; 914.674.4848
Take a ’cue from Texas. The Lone Star State is arguably the football capital of America, so it make senses that they also make one of the perfect Super Bowl party foods: barbecue. At Revenge, owner Jacob Styburski is making impressively authentic pepper-rubbed, slow-smoked brisket, plus ribs, sausages, pulled pork and more. Feeding a crowd? Drop $150 for a whole brisket. Or, if you only have a few mouths to feed, order meats by the pound and pick up a $10 jar of his brisket queso.
