ReedPOP, which produces both New York Super Week and New York Comic Con (NYCC), announced there will be limited-time, exclusive menu items to from notable New York City venues October 5 through 11 to commemorate this year’s festivities. Serendipity 3, Eataly, Two Boots Pizza, No. 7 Sub, Brooklyn Brewery, and Courtyard Marriott Central Park will all offer specials dishes, drinks, and discounts to those holding official New York Super Week cards.
New York City sandwich shop No. 7 Sub will offer its You Fight to Win Guardian sub at all three of its locations — Ace Hotel, Plaza Food Hall, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. The specialty sub is a combination of “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 percent discount to anyone who shows an official New York Super Week Card at all No. 7 Sub locations, in addition to the No. 7 Restaurant in Fort Greene and No. 7 North in Greenpoint.
Renowned dessert restaurant Serendipity 3 will save the day with their Super-dipity Frrrozen Hot BLUE Chocolate: a 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 “S”3 emblem; and finished off with red and blue straws.
Celebrated Italian food hall Eataly will offer a free Dr. Cone-Evil mini gelato cone (your choice of flavor) filled with Nutella and rolled in hazelnuts with the purchase of their Nutella Crepe Crusader (any Nutella Crepe on the menu) during their regular Nutella Bar hours 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Just flash your New York Super Week Card or New York Comic Con Badge for this sweet deal.
Two Boots Pizza will also be serving up a signature “super” pizza, and Courtyard Marriott Central Park (official hotel partner of New York Comic Con and New York Super Week) has created three delicious cocktail concoctions with The Fantastic Pour (a blackberry basil Tom Collins), a grapefruit tonic dubbed the Tonic Boom, and one named the Secret Identity (a variation of The Modern). All drinks will be served at The Bistro at the Central Park Courtyard location.
Additionally Wikia — a source for pop culture, entertainment, and gaming expertise — will be bringing back its popular Wikia Fantasy Food Truck. During New York Comic Con Wikia will be serving fan-selected fictional foods from popular games and TV shows free of charge beginning at 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 8 and running while supplies last. Some of these items include Nuka-Cola from Bethesda’s Fallout franchise, Cookie Cat from Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe, Mabel Juice from Disney XD’s Gravity Falls, and Greedy Milk from Warframe. There will also be a special bonus item: Critical Rolls from YouTube’s Geek & Sundry. Stars from celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube, DJBBQ and Dulce Delight, helped to these create one-of-a-kind recipes for the fictional winning foods.
These delicacies are in addition to the already announced 2015 Brooklyn Defender IPA: an exclusive brew created as the official beer of New York Super Week and New York Comic Con. The Brooklyn Defender IPA is a bright, juicy IPA with a reddish twist from a dash of roasted malt, a “super-powered beer” that will maintain constant vigilance to battle back the blandness lurking around the edges. This year’s rendition will be available at Brooklyn Brewery and select bars and restaurants across the Tri-State area, available bottled for the first time, as well as on tap.
New York Super Week Card holders can enjoy discounts and incentives at dozens of other bars, restaurants, retailers, and exhibits throughout New York City, ranging from drink specials and meals discounts, to priority seating and reduced admission at select New York Super Week events and venues.
