According to Mission Local, Bel is going to be replaced by an “old school pinball salon” called Outer Orbit Pinball and Restaurant. While the finer details of the Outer Orbit operation are still scarce (Inside Scoop reached out to the owners and will update this post accordingly) it’s worth noting the video game/bar concept is having its moment. News about the Bel closure started spreading earlier this week when owners Richard Rosen and Jennifer Garris (the same folks behind by Pi Bar, the Mission’s popular craft beer and pizza spot) posted a notice at the location announcing the departure. [...] when Rosen was recently injured in a motorcycle accident and was forced to take time off, Bel’s skeleton crew struggled to stay afloat. The Outer Orbit website says the food will be “Hawaiian-inspired dishes evoking the playful feel of the islands” alongside “a curated list of beer and wine for adult gamers.”
