As you may have noticed, the tendrils of NYCC and Super Week are everywhere, including a variety of food specials from some fine eateries around the city. I attended a preview of these foodstuffs — which are available now through the 11th — last week and could only sample a few because diet, but here’s the list: Serendipity 3, Eataly, Two Boots Pizza, No. 7 Sub and Courtyard Marriott Central Park are all participating, and if you have a NY Super Week card you can get some discounts and specials. Please note that some of the branding of these dishes makes them sound a little inedible, but I’m sure they all taste great.
I sampled the Eataly Dr. Cone Evil and it was TO DIE FOR. I also sampled the Tonic Boom – Gin and Grafruit Seltzer that would be a very refereshign cocktail for an afternoon.
And of course Nutella anything is what makes life worth living.
No. 7 Sub: You Fight to Win Guardian sub
Plasteel Plating (prosciutto), Sapphire Wire (roasted bean sprouts), Hadronic Essence (Thai Basil) and Ascendant Energy (pho mayo). No. 7 Sub will be offering a 10% discount for anyone who shows an official New York Super Week Card at all No. 7 Sub locations.
Serendipity 3 will save the day with their Super-dipity Frrrozen Hot BLUE Chocolate– an indestructible BLUE blend of Serendipity 3’s new Frrrozen Hot White Chocolate topped with a heroic mountain of whipped cream, sprinkled with a flash of red, white and blue stars in a goblet protected by an S3 emblem and finished off with red and blue straws.
Courtyard Marriott official hotel partner of New York Comic Con and New York Super Week is creating three delicious cocktail concoctions with The Fantastic Pour, a bombastic Blackberry Basil Collins, a gargantuan Grapefruit Tonic dubbed the Tonic Boom, and Secret Identity a variation of The Modern.
