If you don't want to spend Super Bowl Sunday watching the game, while possibly devouring a ridiculous takeout spread, you should know that it just so happens to be one of the best restaurant nights of the year: Places that are otherwise all but impossible to access have availability. This year, you're still out of luck at Sushi Nakazawa, but M. Wells Steakhouse, Carbone, Eleven Madison Park, Per Se, and lots of other A-plus spots currently have free tables for two at prime times. Here are twenty options that will certainly make you consider skipping the game (or just watching it on DVR afterward) — but move fast because we can't guarantee they'll stay free for long.
