The Alley's green salad of shredded fennel, cabbage, celery leaves, jalapeños, and cilantro tossed in lemon vinaigrette.
The Alley is a bowling venue with a small number of lanes (eight) but plenty of retro style. The dozen vintage arcade games lining one wall are throwbacks to an earlier era, but the food is as up to date as it can be. The handiwork of Aaron Siegel and Taylor Garrigan, the guys behind Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ, it’s what they call “feel-good food” — a tall double-pattied burger, nachos topped with slow-braised pork and green chili sauce, and savory meatballs doused in marinara. There’s a selection of pizzas made on French bread plus some heartier entrees like a braised short rib and fried chicken, which come with tempting side dishes like white cheddar-laced grits and gooey shells and cheese dotted with pork belly. Powered with such hearty, satisfying fare, you’re bound to roll a few strikes on the lanes.—Robert Moss
