Games rule at Game Master Grill, a new Mineola restaurant where diners can plan a chess move or roll the dice between forkfuls of pasta. No computer games here. Board games line the walls, and the tablecloths are made of rubber play mats from games, too. "The concept is really a social alternative to just dining," said David VanderWerf, owner of Game Master Grill.
