Lesa Gigante, a representative from Bowled, had the following to say about the decision to close the restaurant. “Yes it’s true. Michael made the very very difficult decision today to close the doors. We’ve been struggling for a while with high rent, labor cost and just not enough people eating out. We’ve been blessed to have wonderful customers, great reviews and enthusiastic word of mouth. We’ve prided ourselves on great food, a comfortable atmosphere and friendly service. But that just wasn’t enough in this economic climate. We needed more people coming in the door.
