Move Over Disney, Fun is Coming to Pittsburgh, Latitude 40

Move over Kennywood, Dave and Buster’s, Chuck E. Cheese, there is a Man/Woman /Kid’s Cave with classy accoutrements right in Robinson Township.   I was fortunate to be at the VIP Grand Preview Party  and I will tell you the management knows how to throw a party.

The entrance is like being welcomed to Oz!
The layout of the building is grandiose and everywhere you look there is some new amenity.  The staff is well trained and unbelievably congenial.  My guest and I were greeted at the door and welcomed.   We were also thanked on the way out for coming.   Latitude 40 truly is “the future of restaurant/entertainment centers.  At 65,000 square feet and two floors.”

 You walk in to an expansive foyer type area next to the downstairs bar with a welcoming staircase to take you to the mezzanine and a bar restaurant on the left.  We opted for the elevator to the second floor and were not disappointed.

There were food stations everywhere so that we could find our  favorites on the upcoming menu.   And we found several.   We tried the Boom Boom Shrimp which is batter fried and dipped into the amazing SECRET Boom Boom sauce.  The prime rib right off the roast was probably the finest, tenderest and perfectly done we have ever tasted.  We were able to try the Lai Thai Tude Pasta and the Spicy Penne Pasta, both delectable.
While we did not try them we saw the availability of hand stretched and tossed oven fired pizzas done right in front of you, what a touch!

You never had such luxury bowling or hanging out while others bowl!
I could not believe that the service could be consistently that great so I went back on the media day to try out lunch in the downstairs bar restaurant.   This Axis bar menu is available also in the bowling alleys.  Imagine luxury bowling right next to a band and dance floor with a delightfully clad waitress to bring you your drinks.  Also Dine in Movies, what luxury!  This is planned for February along with outdoor patios coming later in the year.  I was personally fascinated by the media room on the mezzanine.  This controls what is played on the multiple large screen TV’s over the bowling alleys and at various venues around the complex.  And six luxury bowling alleys, this place is going to be too much fun.

Oh and I forgot to mention the games!  Just too much to see and do!
So  on my return (I couldn’t believe the service would be continually that great)  I had the Tomato Bisque Soup with julienned basil.  Yum!  Also had the Blackened Ahi rare tuna rolled in sesame and , “sliced and served atop mixed greens tossed in balsamic vinaigrette with chopped roasted red peppers and sundried tomatoes.   Finished with a drizzle of wasabi sour cream and goat cheese.”  Hey this very descriptive menu does not lie.  And the service was just as excellent and congenial on my return visit.  I was late because of covering another event and most of the media was long gone, still the service was carried out exceptionally by the Latitude 40 highly trained and congenial staff.
I would say this is a wonderland for the entire family right in Robinson.  Try it out for a date night, singles night or family night.  No matter what your pleasure you will not be disappointed.
