I don’t know about you, but when I think “dinner,” I don’t think “bowling” and that’s OK, because Pinstripes is so much more than a bowling alley.
We were invited to preview the new spring menu at Pinstripes in Georgetown. Known for its “bistro, bocce, and bowling,” Pinstripes is a fun, affordable, family-friendly establishment situated in a prime location in Georgetown: on the canal, in the heart of the neighborhood.
Shortly after arriving with my fiancee we sat down to a tasting with other bloggers and journalists. Pinstripes came out of the gates hot, with an antipasto platter that included various cheeses, cured meats, and house-made lamb sausage. Color us impressed that Pinstripes makes its own sausage in-house. I had no idea!
The first courses were heavily influenced by heirloom tomatoes, which are usually synonymous with warmer weather, and fresh burrata. We sampled the heirloom tomato bruschetta on delicious fresh, crusty bread. The burrata was creamy and the tomatoes were bursting with flavor. We also appreciated that the dipping pesto was made nut-free, for anyone with allergies.
Aside from the bruschetta, we were most impressed with the veggie burger made with beet juice, the striped bass entree, and the market salad, which came with chunks of juicy watermelon. You can even order gnocchi, if you’re craving a more hearty dish.
The prime rib dip was noted as a Pinstripes staple. The sandwich was flavorful and unique— presented on a pretzel bun, rather than your standard white bread.
From start to finish, the dishes were surprisingly complex and flavorful. We think it’s a great place for a night when you want to have a tasty dinner, with a side of fun. Although we attended dinner on a windy, cold night, we can’t wait to come back and enjoy the outdoor patio, followed by bowling for a casual group brunchtivity.
