A piece of sat dormant for two years, and now owners are taking it out of hibernation.
Since its opening the bowling alley has usually leased its food service space, and over the years it's been known as the Country Cup or Kingpin Grill. When the Kingpin Grill vacated in 2009, manager David Camastro said they continued to serve menu items from nearby .
On Friday, however, owner Cesar Canonigo is reviving the dining and bar area as the Kingpin Grille—and if things go well, he said he may consider expanding operations to include three meals a day.
This time food operations are being maintained by Canonigo, not a separate entity. The new menu, which will be available during the alley's operating hours, includes: 7- and 16-inch pizzas, burgers, chicken and beef sandwiches, pasta, salads, fried green beans, mac and cheese bits, and fried sweet potatoes.
Food service will be available to both bowlers and the general public. Canonigo said customers receive 10 percent off orders through Oct. 31 with a coupon (attached in PDF form).
Lisle Lanes opens at 3 p.m. on Friday.
