You got one-stop shopping at this multi-purpose venue: a two-story concert hall at The LINQ, a 32-lane bowling alley, and a restaurant that serves fantastic comfort food. Start on one floor and head to the rest in any order you like. The menu alone might just keep you in the restaurant all night though, thanks to a huge selection that includes hummus, pork rinds, French bread pizzas, and barbecue. For having such a diverse menu, Brooklyn Bowl surprisingly does a good job with all of it. The fried chicken is particularly stellar—it can even be prepared gluten-free. Oh, and if you do decide to go bowling, definitely keep that separate from eating, as fingers greasy from fried chicken don’t belong in bowling balls.
