Super Bowl LIII is this Sunday and whether you are excited about the matchup or not, you can make sure your gathering is a winner with some Super Bowl favorites. Here’s what we recommend:

Turtle and the Wolf
  • Turtle and The Wolf
  • Look at Turtle and The Wolf’s Super Bowl catering menu and just try not to salivate! Torn between fried chicken or smoked beef short rib? Order both (and mac and cheese and biscuits of course). Call 973.783.9800 or email with your order before 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 31.

  • Belgiovine’s
  • Six-foot subs, buffalo wings, antipasto platters, and yes, rice balls, sound like the perfect spread for game day. Our pick for subs — the MKA (you’ll thank us later.) Call 973-744-2221 to place your order.

    Ruthie’s BBQ
  • Ruthie’s BBQ
  • Ruthie’s BBQ solves the Super Bowl dilemma of choosing between pizza or BBQ. Get your fix of ribs and wings from Ruthie’s or opt for pizza (we love the Max pie topped with Texas sausage). Ruthie’s will be open for pick-ups on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., but get your orders in early!

Want to make a vegan-friendly Super Bowl repast? Wendy Renshaw, owner of Leafy Kitchen, a Montclair-based catering company, offers her 100% vegan take on Chili Cheese Nachos (pictured) and Fudgy Brownies.

Renshaw’s recipes are compliant with a vegan diet which is only fitting for Super Bowl Sunday since New England Patriots Tom Brady attributes a plant-based diet to his age-defying playing ability and endurance.

And if watching the Super Bowl just isn’t your thing, there’s always Fascino:
