The gyro yielders at Kronos Gyros & Café combine authentically Greek ingredients to prepare fresh and flavorful Mediterranean pitas and gyros and salads as well as local specialties. Mediterranean munching commences with the gyros platter, stacked with seasoned meat, rice pilaf, hummus, warm pita wedges, and a choice of salad ($7.49). Flatbread pizza crust keeps a low profile beneath the show-stealing combo of toppings on the barbecue chicken pizza ($5.99), including chopped chicken, tomato, onion, barbecue sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Local specialties offer flavors as familiar as the back of your hand tattooed with your monogram, including the Chicago-style Vienna beef hot dog ($2.49) and Maxwell Street polish sausage ($3.99). Celebrate sweet victory over hunger with honey and granola-filled greek yogurt ($1.50) or flaky baklava ($1).
Mirage Restaurant plates an extensive menu of meats, pasta, salads, and more for overnight guests and casual passersby. Lay lunchtime claim to George's burger, a midday meeting of broiled ground sirloin with raw onion and crispy bacon on grilled dark rye ($7.75), or take in fresh fare with the Mirage salad, made of baby greens coddled by gorgonzola cheese, sliced apples and radishes, toasted pine nuts, and sweet raspberry vinaigrette ($8.75), which can be bulked up by chicken ($2.20 extra) or salmon ($4.20 extra) for those in need of a protein punch before going dolphin-lifting. Dinner's array of fresh game and sea-game come in a pasta disguise in the seafood carbonara, splashed with sautéed Gulf shrimp and sea scallops ($12.95), or augmented by applesauce with the center-cut pork chops ($10.95).
Distinguished by its blazing open stone oven, Chicago Fire Oven and Visibility Bar crafts an inventive and flame-licked menu of modern American fare. Hungry mouths can peruse a variety of hearty entrees, soups, salads, and burgers before ordering the white pizza ($8.95 for an 8”; $16.50 for a 14”) to experience a balance of fire-infused pizza crust, arugula, italian sausage, and ricotta, provolone, and mozzarella cheeses. Cedar-planked salmon ($17.95) is accented with lemon-laced caper-dill aioli, and a juicily marinated and char-grilled half chicken ($15.50) takes up residence on a brick beside lime-cilantro jus.

Like a Picasso portrait of a bowling alley, Kings presents many facets stitched together seamlessly. Within the vibrant 27,000-square-foot interior, ‘70s supernova-style chandeliers and overstuffed lounge seating hark back to the retro roots of Americana while more than 50 big-screen HDTVs and projectors inject a spike of modern, technology-driven society. Above 20 bowling lanes, whose oil glistens under colored lights, sports stream so that not a play is missed. Three billiards tables, on the other hand, rest in a lounge area that is relatively private, cut off from the rest of the world and the crash of pins by muted red walls. Kings has hosted thousands of parties at locations across the country since its opening, and has private party rooms, where six bowling lanes lit with black lights complement the dotted light spread by a spinning disco ball.
Though kids are welcome to bowl and eat, the decor begins a message that ends with the 21+ policy in the evenings: this is not the average bowling alley. On granite topped tables amid the dining area's curtain-draped walls, patrons can dine on a menu of pizza, burgers, and ribs. Outside, chrome-topped tables dapple the patio, beckoning young lovers or negotiating world leaders to enjoy a specialty cocktail—such as the Big Balls for Two—or share an ice-cream float.
