Tavern+Bowl a American Restaurant/Bowling Alley Opens in Costa Mesa

 Tavern+Bowl recently opened in Costa Mesa. Headquartered in San Diego, this is Tavern Bowl's first location outside SD.  CEO  Daniel Hurd wants people to come in for the food and there just happens to be a place where you can bowl also. As for the food...its American bar food kicked up a notch. I doubt there are many bowling alleys you can get a plate of grilled oysters. Other dishes include a Korean BBQ pizza, (good but not Korean at all) Filet Mignon tacos, and grilled artichokes. All of which are worth trying. Dessert wise they had some interesting options. First spot I have ever seen butterscotch creme brulee (while it was well made I am not a butterscotch fan.) Overall if you are looking for a spot to bowl in Costa Mesa you can't do better than  Tavern Bowl.
