Super Bowl Sunday: Manhattan

Any recommendations for a bar or restaurant with decent food to watch the game? Preferably in Tribeca, but West and East Village OK. Caveat: Patriots fans.

    That caveat makes it a little tricky...:)

    Otherwise I would suggest mudville 9 in tribeca which has a great craft beer list, a cozy neighborhood vibe, plenty of flatscreens and some of the best wings in the city...

      2nd mudville. The wings are the best in the city and tons of beers. However only 2 screens and the sound is rarely on.

        Agree on the wings...awesome...but there's like 6 screens in mudville...4 behind the bar and another 2 next to the little seating area!

        Excellent, thanks. Look, we'll keep it on the down low re the Pats. Plus we're Jersey emigres in Boston for decades: Love the Yankees, hate the Sox.

        I did a quick google search, and The Hairy Monk (Murray Hill), The Riviera (WV) and Professor Thom's (EV) were mentioned as suitable for Patriots fans. Of the three, I've only been to The Hairy Monk, which I hated, because I don't like sports bars. I have a vague recollection of reading on Chowhound that Professor Thom's nachos are very good. Hope this is slightly helpful.

            Usually Pizza, Alcohol and Sports on TV is a rare combination in this city. I know of Pizza Pub on 23 and 3rd but the pizza is horrible and its out of your hood.

              Here's another idea: hit the east village and get your pizza fix early doors either at motorino, lil'frankies or veloce pizzeria. All 3 do a good pie. Moto's is neopolitan in style, frankie's classic nyc and veloce more of a sicilian approach.

              Then decamp to standings bar on E.7th which is a small sports bar sandwiched inbetween 2 other great EV bars, Jimmys No.43 and Burp Castle. Standings is small but every space on the wall is taken up by a flat screen. They also have a great selection of craft beer. To top it off the barman is a bostonian and big into boston sports. If I was in the city for the game this is where I'd head for. But get there early as it will fill up instantly. It is a very cool little neighborhood joint...
