At each bowling center, balls hurtle down smooth, polished lanes as LCD screens keep track of scores and shimmering party lights illuminate the faces of determined bowlers. After lacing up some slide-enabling shoes and clearing the gutters of deciduous pins, bowlers set their sights on toppling 10-pin clusters. Carpets bedecked with psychedelic swirls lead to shelves stocked with neon-colored balls, which proffer their pin-busting talents to bowlers of various sizes. Fingers can warm up by mashing buttons in an arcade full of entrancing video games or bench-pressing french fries at the onsite grill and pub.

With the exact same management, cooking staff, and emblematic painting since its founding in 1989, Mona Lisa Restaurant has had nearly three decades to perfect its Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. It was three decades well spent. Today, the eatery serves veal piccata, new york strip steaks, and a rack of lamb brushed with dijon mustard. They also serve rich pasta dishes such as penne ala vodka with prosciutto and light cream, the angel hair and shrimp adriatico with sweet peppers and a white wine sauce, and the Southern Italian sampler, made up of manicotti, ravioli, eggplant, meatballs, and sausage. The fine food is matched by an equally excellent drink selection, which includes dry, sweet, and fruity martinis, vintage ports and cognacs, and a top-tier scotch selection that includes Bordeaux-finished Bowmore and an 18-year Glenlivet.
