Best Sportsbook Food




Most of us who hang out at sports bars are content with a beer and a couple of sliders, so it’s a bonus when the food is good. Heraea has all the bells and whistles: DJs, private rooms, the requisite number of giant TV screens and a team of comely runners to place sports bets. So Doug Bell’s fare—such as pretzel-wrapped dogs ($9), crispy green beans with sea salt ($9) and tuna tartare tacos ($15)—feels like your team just won the championship. The burger ($17), in case you were wondering, is an 8-ounce stack topped with cheddar cheese, bacon marmalade and all the fixings.
