Thirty restored pinball machines line two deep-red walls of this showroom-cum-arcade, co-founded by former Broadway Arcade owner Steve Epstein and pinball champ Steve Zahler. Muted TVs loop pinball documentaries, and in the spirit of pinball purism, there’s neither music, booze, nor food. But pasty-skinned-gamer cave this is not: Test your skills on the Wizard of Oz Emerald City Limited Edition at noon on a weekday, and you’ll find Murray Hill lawyers on their lunch break. Share the machines with kids on weekend afternoons, and join the spillover from local bars at night. They’ve sold a few machines (new ones start at $6,000, restored at $12,000), but revenue comes from the all-you-can-eat-style gaming.
