After the college games and after the NFL show, you're going to need a place to unwind. Maybe two or three.

Mara's Homemade in Syosset comforts you with pulled pork and chopped brisket; char-grilled oysters and smoked ribs, plus crawfish "cheesecake" packed with crawfish tails and andouille sausage and chocolate cream pie. Super takeout.

Mara's Homemade is at 236 W. Jericho Tpke., Syosset; 516-682-9200.

Down the "real big crabcake" at Jackson Hall American Bar & Grille in East Islip. Besides, it has bacon on top. Mini-cheeseburgers, Buffalo-style chicken wings, meat loaf, macaroni-and-cheese, anda root-beer float, too.

Jackson Hall is at 335 E. Main St., East Islip; 631-277-7100.

And either celebrate or commiserate at City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill in Westbury. Very good burgers and steak frites, crabcakes and brisket sandwich, pizzas and salads. A big, buoyant joint.

City Cellar is at 1080 Corporate Dr., Westbury; 516-693-5400.
