Paramus Welcomes Italian Dining and Bowling/Bocce Concept; More Food News


On Friday, Westfield Garden State Plaza will celebrate the grand opening of Pinstripes, an Italian-American restaurant with bowling and bocce under the same roof. “Sophistication meets fun” here, its website teases. The menu—wood-fired pizzas, pasta dishes, gelato, cocktails, beer and an extensive wine list—can be enjoyed on its own or while bowling and playing bocce, a classic Italian ball sport.

This new restaurant/bar serves seasonal and produce-driven dishes from its Italian- and Mediterranean-inspired menu. Many of its ingredients come from local vendors in New Jersey.

The majority of FiNNBAR’s profits will go to Studio Route 29, an art studio in Frenchtown for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Artwork from the studio is hung around the restaurant.
