Del Frisco's offers Super Bowl specials like lollipop chicken wings.
Del Frisco's Grille
The upscale steakhouse is serving up exclusively priced Super Bowl treats, such as deviled eggs, lollipop chicken wings, roasted tomato flatbreads, and more. Specials also extend to drinks like draft beers and select wines. Or, choose a specialty concoction like honey badger shots, a blend of Tuaca and fresh pineapple, or VIP martinis, a mix of fresh pineapple-infused clementine vodka. And don’t worry about not finding a good game-day seat here—Del Frisco’s eating areas boast multiple flat-screens. Special runs from 4 p.m.-12 a.m. on Super Bowl Sunday. 1201 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 202-450-4686
In addition to the requisite specials on wings and assorted domestic and imported brews, the restaurant makes good on its inventors theme by offering up creative cocktails to celebrate the Super Bowl. The San Francisco Treat pays homage to the 49ers by pairing Pisco and cumquat, while Lewis’ Last Dance, comprised of blackberries and Cognac, honors the Ravens’ Ray Lewis. When it comes to snacks, sink your teeth into the aforementioned spicy grilled wings, which are infused with tarragon herb ranch dressing. Specials run Super Bowl Sunday, 4 p.m.-game’s end. 2080 Jamieson Ave., Alexandria, 703-253-8640
Capitol City Brewing Company
Downtown DC’s mecca for local beers continues its Sunday football specials for the big game. Bowl watchers can choose from exclusively priced appetizers and handcrafted beers from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. If you’re over the football-and-beer combo, sip on Absolut Bloody Marys and specialty Absolut cocktails for a change of pace. 1100 New York Ave. NW, 202-628-2222
Head to Frederick’s Family Meal, where the main event is a fried chicken, pickles, and biscuit deal that serves eight and comes complete with your choice of three hearty sides: Brussels sprouts, baked beans, mac ‘n’ cheese, mashed potatoes, or collard greens ($105). Tuck into more of the resto’s upscale comfort food, with in-house deals on chili cheese fries and other items also available (all in-house specials 7 a.m.-11:30 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday). If you’d rather catch the game from the comfort of your own home, the fried chicken meal can be ordered to-go. Other take-out items include pimento cheese, deviled eggs, and chicken pot pie fritters (To-go orders must be placed by February 1 by emailing email@example.com; pickup is Super Bowl Sunday). 880 N. East St., Frederick, 301-378-2895
