Super Bowl XLVI

Indy's Servin' Up

Down Home Cooking

1/26/2012 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0126_superbowl_food_composite_superbowl_exCelebs piling into Super Bowl XLVI (46 to non-Romans) luxury suites better bring their own grub if they want fancy finger foods ... because TMZ has learned this year's stadium menu is loaded with home-style comforts.

While the Giants and Patriots do battle at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis -- Centerplate catering will dish up some Midwest favorites:

-- Braised Buffalo Short Ribs featuring natural buffalo in a classic French braise
-- Heartland Farm Table platter with local veggie selections
-- Chef designed Chicken Pot Pie

Basically ... sushi lovers stay home.

However, average joes in run-of-the-mill super expensive SB seats can get Indianapolis Shrimp Cocktails ... which we're told is legendary -- despite Indy being landlocked.

Oh, and there's a sweet consolation for the NFL teams that didn't make it to the big game. All team owners get a giant jar of mixed M&Ms in their team's colors.

Feel better now, Baltimore and San Fran?

the "Indianapolis shrimp ****tails" ?
i have never heard of any such thing. i have had st. elmo's shrimp ****tail and those are definitely the best anywhere. i have tried many many places all over but theirs is by far, the best. you can taste the fresh daily made sauce. everywhere else- the other places taste like ketchup.
st elmo's in indy is easily the best anywhere in the world no doubt!

It's not about the shrimp, it's about the ****tail sauce. Made fresh throughout the day, using tons of fresh horseradish. Indy is quite famous for it!!

lol, whatever. you can get sushi just about anywhere in indy, not to mention that the calibur of dining establishments in downtown indianapolis would blow your mind. i think quite a few people are going to be pleasantly surprised by what we have to offer.

You're fussing about the finger food? I'm surprised you aren't complaining about it being a smoking city.

Centerplate is the worst company ever!! Aside from avoiding bankruptcy on a regular basis, promote employees that steal, bounce checks...they serve Sysco prepackaged and prepared foods. Centerplate simply warms up or ices down these "favorites"!

What a crock! I live in a town in Indiana that is about 70 miles from Indy. I ain't never had no buffalo short ribs, don't have a clue what a farm table platter is and their ain't no local vegetables right now cause its winter (duh)and how legendary can a shrimp ****tail be? Its shrimp on ice with red sauce! If you want local food you can do a lot better than what they are serving at the stadium.

Indianapolis shrimp ****tails are nothing to rave about, in general. St. Elmo's shrimp ****tails are the best anywhere, fresh horseradish changes everything.

Indy is a world class city. Anyone who doesn't think so has not visited the wonderful downtown area. Years and years ago, there were only a few cities that could offer the best in dining, shopping and culture. Those days are long gone. Anything you want to do in LA and NYC you can do in Indianapolis - just on a smaller and more affordable scale.
