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.
NFL.com 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
Rich Eisen: Steak and potatoes
Roger Goodell: A very refined meal, three courses or more
