This joyful joint venture between two local restaurant brands taps into the nostalgic fancies of ’80s babies and translates them for grown-up tastes. The Roxy’s Grilled Cheese team slings gooey sandwiches and other whimsical noshes (like Gouda sauce-slathered hot dogs), the Area Four crew pours campy cocktails (in funky vessels like cartoon-covered lunchbox thermoses), and guests pump tokens into tons of vintage video games (we meet again, Ms. Pac-Man). High score! This is a win.
