Market Basket: A sushi platter from Zama
Turn your Super Bowl party into the Sushi Bowl with this mega-maki platter created by Rittenhouse Square's Zama specifically for pro football's big weekend. You won't find any of chef Hiroyuki "Zama" Tanaka's more exotic creations (for those, you'll have to eat at the restaurant, open especially for lunch that Sunday). On the take-home platter, your guests will see rather more familiar combo rolls including crunchy tuna, sweet-glazed eel, salmon-avocado, California roll, and shrimp tempura. But the quality and craftsmanship are what one would expect from one of the city's sushi best. And the value - $50 for about 64 pieces - is the equivalent of a Hail Hiroyuki touchdown pass.
