Feel Like A Kid In This Reality-Bending Arcade

  • Food
  • Games

Get ready for a night of games and good grub. First, start at Arabesque near Herald Square, a restaurant that carefully intertwines North African, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean cuisines. Named for the art form defined by a complex ornamental design of intertwined flowing lines and geometric figures, Arabesque embodies Moorish decoration in its architecture and menu. Try their mussels or mixed grill plates, or go for the Moroccan specialties like couscous or tagine.

Next, plunge into a headset-donning future at VR World, a futuristic arcade showcasing virtual reality games and experiences. Master your 3-D sculpture skills with “Tilt Brush,” practice your chopping skills with “Fruit Ninja,” or try your hand at an office job in a future where humans don’t work with “Job Simulator.” Since there’s often a wait for games, take a break in between experiences with a glass of wine at the studio’s bar. Just don’t drink too much and then try to play, as alcohol followed by VR can leave some people feeling a bit woozy.
