Because man cannot live by pane Pugliese alone, especially on Super Bowl Sunday (a.k.a. the biggest gorging day of the year aside from Thanksgiving), Sullivan St Bakery’s Jim Lahey is trying his hand at takeout bean-and-beef chili. And if you know the bread man’s stellar work with meatballs and also cannellini from sister restaurant Co., you know it’s probably going to be great.
