Eli Manning's 'SNL' Cold Open: Giants Quarterback Still A Tourist In NYC (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Despite leading the New York Giants to a Super Bowl win, Eli Manning is still a tourist in New York City. At least, according to his "Saturday Night Live" cold open when hosting this weekend.

"There's a great place called The Olive Garden," Manning told an audience member asking about the best Italian food in Manhattan (who may or may not have been featured player Vanessa Bayer). "You gotta go to New Jersey, but it's worth it."

"'Cats'! You gotta see 'Cats'!" exclaimed the New Orleans native when asked about the must-see Broadway shows, referring to the Andrew Lloyd Webber production which closed in 2000 after an 18-year run.

Manning had quite a bit to live up to. His older brother, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, impressed audiences with his 2007 hosting appearance.
