Super Food During the Super Bowl

I know this is a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share with you the photos from the super meal we had during the Super Bowl at Peter X. Kelly’s Restaurant X in Congers, a place where the food was as important as the football.

Those of you who know Peter Kelly’s coconut shrimp from over the years will notice the difference here. This above is beer-battered; not coconut.

I think I enjoyed the raw bar best:

When you sit down, the table is set with “The Line of Scrimmage”:

Truffled Popcorn, Garlic Chips, Honey-Roasted Nuts, Crisp Tortillas

But I did happen up on this one of the Classic Caesar Salad, held by the waiter in the apron in the center of the photo:

For “The End Zone,” there was “An Array of Passed Desserts”

And my favorite, little pudding cakes shaped like pigskins. Now that’s a real combination of food and football.

Oh and yes, I’m sure you know: the Saints beat the Colts: 31- 17.
