Brunch Of The Week: Bowled Over

When someone invites you to brunch at a bowling alley, it’s OK to be skeptical. Especially if you have to drive all the way to Fort Worth.

But Pinstripes isnot your ordinary bowling destination. And their brunch is far from ordinary, too.

Start with bottomless mimosas or $5 Bloody Marys made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka and topped with an antipasto skewer. Then get to browsing the menu because you have some tough decisions ahead.

We knew that we were in for a meal unlike anything we’d ever had in a place where people throw balls at pins the moment the smoked salmon flatbread was placed in front of us. Loaded with dill cream cheese, fresh red onion, arugula, grape tomatoes, capers, and loads of smoked salmon, it was a meal unto itself.

But in the name of research, we pushed onward and marked off one menu item after another.

Reserve a lane and work off some of your brunch while you’re there.

In fact, we worked our way through everything you see in the photo at the top of this story: lobster and egg bruschetta, eggs Benedict, an egg white omelet with avocado toast, peppercorn crusted ribeye and eggs, and chicken and waffles. (Technically we didn’t have a bowl of raw eggs, but you know, artistic license and all that.)

Holy shamoly.

We were in absolute heaven the entire brunch the food was so incredible. Plus, we had enough leftovers for a few breakfasts during the week.

Fort Worth isn’t often on our weekend agenda, but Pinstripes definitely has us wanting to go back.

To paraphrase Christopher Walken, “More Cowtown!”
