Catering a house party for the Big Game on February 11, 2024?

What are your plans for food for Sunday?

Are you going it alone, or are you throwing a massive football shindig with friends and family?

What’s up with your food situation? Will you be spending an eternity cooking up a storm in the kitchen?

Most people like doing things the easy way by picking up the phone and calling their favorite caterers or eateries. It’s just too daunting to whip up a fabulous feast. You want to focus on your guests as well as the big game.

If I’m not going to my local pub or favorite sports bar, I’m doing the cooking.


Here’s Where Ocean County Is Ordering Food For The Big Game.


A few years ago, I did an Asian-themed party. I made all kinds of finger food that included a variety of dumplings, including gyoza and shumai. I made a few different varieties of egg rolls too.

I created a bunch of main dishes such as Korean short ribs, beef and broccoli, wonton soup with chicken and spinach, fried rice, General Tso’s chicken, and roast pork buns.

It was an extraordinary amount of work. Even though I love to cook, it was extremely exhausting.

I haven’t made up my mind about what we’re going to do this year. I’m leaning towards staying home and doing something on a much smaller scale.

If I still lived in Monmouth County and I was going to order out, I’d probably call Pastosa on 35 in Eatontown. They have amazing sandwiches, homemade ravioli’s, rice balls and hot dishes.

If I was going to do a variety of pizzas, The Galley in Asbury Park, or maybe Vic’s in Bradley Beach would get my business. Vic’s is as old school as it gets, and the Galley elevates everything they create.

If you’re planning on ordering food for your big game gathering, here’s a list of places suggested by the food-loving football fans in Monmouth County.
