How many bowling alleys have bragging rights to one of the best fried chicken dishes in New York? Leave it to the Bromberg Brothers (of Blue Ribbon fame) to spread the love to a Brooklyn bowling alley with 16 lanes and live music. As for their fried chicken, it’s a crispy-skinned thing of beauty. But if there’s one thing on the menu that just might upstage the fried chicken, it’s the “Bourbon Street Milkshake.” It’s got all the comfort of a creamy milkshake with some adult-friendly alterations to keep things exciting. There’s the shot of bourbon and a sizable dollop of Nutella, injecting a rich, praline flavor to the drink. And then, there’s the homemade ice cream made with real vanilla. They mix it all together and serve it in a chilled sundae glass. The result is one killer spiked shake, easily good enough to make you forget the bowling you came to do. At the very least, it’ll make you forget how hot it is outside.
