“Tator tots on the menu at Bowlmor.” That was the exact tweet of surprise when lo and behold, tator tots came out as an accompaniment to buffalo chicken sliders at Bowlmor Lanes’ Greenwich Country Club. I was there for a rather fratastic birthday affair (ie. beer pong, basketball, beer), and hardly expected the bar food of choice to be available. But hey! Apparently David Burke does the food here?! The tots seemed like they were of the frozen-and-we-reheated species, but to be less snobby about it, they weren’t actually all bad! The crisp exterior meant the crunch we look for, and the tender interior was piping hot. Too bad it was a bit mushy in terms of texture, and well, the only dip was bacon ketchup. Glazing over the menu in the aftermath proved beneficial, as yes, CHEESE SAUCE comes poured over the appetizer portion of the tots. Now, if only I were as good at putt-putt golf as I am downing potato poppers.
