best takeout / dishes to re-heat?

I am having a few friends over for the Jets game tonight and I want to pick up food from a restaurant to re-heat and serve during the game. I am willing to go anywhere in the city, bring in any type of food and price is not really a concern (not that I expect most re-heatable food to be that expensive). Any suggestions?

  1. If you are willing to go REALLY down market, here's a link to how White Castles can be perfectly re-heated later.

    1. re: addictedtolunch

      thanks for the suggestion, but I'm not really interested in that.

      I was thinking of getting Daisy May's, but the reviews seem to be mixed. I was also thinking of grabbing a bunch of sandwiches and sides from Torrisi Italian Specialities, but I am still open to other suggestions.

    2. Chili from Blind Tiger
      Mac and cheese from Blue Smoke

      Blind Tiger
      281 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014

      Blue Smoke
      116 East 27th Street, New York, NY 10016

      1. Katz and Russ and Daughters (the sandwiches at Katz are better when you toast the bread). If you live farther uptown you can try H & H bagel and some fish salads at Zabars (if you like sweets their russian coffee cake is awesome). Or a few pies from Joe's in the village.
