Bowling, Bocce, and Scratch Made Food is the Recipe to Success at This Local Houston Bistro

Upper Kirby – This time of year is all about food, fun, and family. At local bistro, Pinstripes, they combine all this and more under the one roof. You can go bowling, play Bocce, and enjoy delicious scratch made Italian American food.

“To really put it simply, it is an Italian American concept. We are a restaurant and entertainment gaming venue. So we can accomplish all of those things; gaming spaces, our full service full menu, and we have an events team that can put together whatever type of private party you’re trying to put together. We love doing it. We have fun while we do,” Pinstripes General Manager, Nate Kamal, told Houston Life.

The food is great at Pinstripes, whether dining in the bistro, at the bar, or at your bowling lane, each dish is made in-house from scratch using quality, locally sourced ingredients with new seasonal menu items dropping all the time.

The kitchen is huge. “We actually have two Expo lines, one for regular restaurant meals, one for our private event meals. So we could have a group of 300, and a full dining room, and full bowling alley. All of this food is getting cranked out at the same time,” explained Kamal. The largest party Pinstripes ever hosted had 15000 guests and while the kitchen is massive, “...we have the tiniest freezer,” said Kamal. The reason bein, they don’t need one. “We don’t have a lot of frozen goods. A lot of the goods and ingredients that are used are locally-sourced, fresh product that we use within one or two days of getting it in,” said Kamal. And those fresh ingredients, are what go into the delicious scratch made biscuits, buttermilk waffles, and omelets at the Sunday brunch omelet station you’ll find every week at Pinstripes.
