Lucky Strike Entertainment today announced A2Kitchen (A2K), a newly developed restaurant concept featuring a menu of elevated classics cultivated by Chef Rodelio Aglibot, an award-winning chef and former host and chef on TLC’s The Food Buddha. Located in Lucky Strike venues across the nation, A2K’s distinctive concept places the sophistication of a chef-driven restaurant and full-service mixologist bar amidst the stimulating atmosphere of art, music and an energetic crowd.
Having attained success at multiple award-winning restaurants, Agilbot has played an influential part of the culinary scene in Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago and provides Lucky Strike with a gastropub dining experience. The celebrated chef has created a menu full of custom dishes with a strong focus on culinary technique and unique use of organic ingredients.
“I attended the opening of Lucky Strike Hollywood back when I was the executive chef at Koi – being a longtime bowler I was excited to see the bowling alley reinvented,” says Rodelio Aglibot. “Now being part of the Lucky Strike culinary team I look forward to reinventing dining atA2K and adding to the overall Lucky Strike Entertainment experience.”
The A2K menu consists of rich comfort food prepared daily with locally sourced ingredients. From unimpeachable classics to exclusive newcomers, A2K epitomizes laid-back refinement. Guests will find contemporary takes on old favorites like: panko-crusted Wisconsin cheese curds with tomato jam, ahi tuna poke flatbread and breaded chicken breast with salsa verde and chimichurri aioli. A2K will also debut a new cocktail list featuring a “seasonal kitchen” approach with hand-crafted cocktails, fine small batch and locally distilled spirits, ripe produce, herbs and spices.
“When we started Lucky Strike, having superior food offerings was always an integral part of our mission. While we’re proud of the previous menu, A2K takes it to an entirely different level,” says Lucky Strike CEO and co-founder Steven Foster. “The immersion will stand as a testament to how influential the brand has become outside of bowling. An entity of its own, A2K aims to become a culinary staple. “
