While all eyes will be on the field, the Super Bowl LIV menu at Hard Rock Stadium is worthy of the championship game and the vivacious Miami atmosphere.

Curated by Centerplate’s Executive Chef Dayanny de la Cruz, the first female head chef for a Super Bowl, this Miami-centric menu will have fans clamoring to try each and every dish.
