Football, friends and food. Here are a few places in Beverly Hills that are open for the big game.
1) Nic's Restaurant and Martini Lounge
Whether a team wins or loses, sets the stage for celebrating with its menu of martinis and light seafood snacks. Try the grilled jumbo shrimp, chilled to perfection and served with a horseradish dipping sauce that adds a spicy kick. It goes great with a dry martini.
Price for Super Bowl finger food: $14.
Nic's Restaurant and Martini Lounge, 453 N Canon Dr; 310-550-5707.
Happy Hour lasts all day long at on Sunday in celebration of the Super Bowl. Beer for under $1 and 50 percent off appetizers and barbecue items will make for a fun and cheap party. The small plates of various meats are not only a supurb deal during happy hour, but you and your friends get to cook everything at the table. The salty fried tofu nuggets taste almost like chicken and are a light, meat-free option.
Price for Super Bowl finger food: $2.50-$3.50 during happy hour.
Gyu-Kaku 163 N La Cienega Blvd; 310-659-5760.
3) Coupa Cafe
tequeños are made of a tangy and chewy cheese blend that tastes like a mix of mozzarella and feta. Perfect as an appetizer, they're wrapped in flour dough—making them a little fluffier and less filling than you're average fried cheese sticks.
Price for Super Bowl finger food: $7.
Coupa Cafe, 419 N Canon Dr; 310-385-0420.
