INDIANAPOLIS — Celebrated chef John Besh already is doing advance work for next year’s Super Bowl in New Orleans, which has the makings of an epic doozy.

But before he departed Indianapolis and this year’s Super Bowl, Besh shared a story about a killer meal he had at St. Elmo Steak House, where he dined in the same room with Drew Brees, Archie Manning and a host of Big Easy luminaries. That led us to play a little word-association game involving the Patriots, the Giants and some of the NFL’s biggest stars. dropped a name. Chef Besh fired back with the first morsel that came to mind.

Peyton Manning: Po’boy

Eli Manning: Steak sandwich

Tom Brady: Filet mignon

Brees: Anything with seafood
