'Meal of Fortune' is unique dining experience that was recently held by 'Mouth Arcade' and 'Theory Kitchen.' While many restaurants have been experimenting with elements of gamification, this pop-up eatery took things to the next level by turning the entire restaurant into an arcade.

Meal of Fortune was held in January of this year at the Manhattan-based gallery and video-game collective 'Babycastles.' The interactive event consisted of a four-course meal turned into digital and analog games. Some of these edible games involved of dice made from p√Ęte de fruit, while others involved bowling for seasoning-filled shakers with 3D-printed rubber balls. With an emphasis on personalization and interactive play, the event was designed to demonstrate how reimagining the restaurant experience as a full-fledged arcade could make diners appreciate how they eat their food.
