We're hearing that Playground, the bar and lounge at 278 E. Congress St., is debuting a new menu next week. The first menu was chiefly small plates and playful items like a bag lunch complete with a juice box, so we're looking forward to checking out what's in store next.
The owner is also tweaking the drink menu and adding more summer cocktails. Again, the first menu had a drink rimmed with Poprocks, so it should be interesting to see what emerges next week.
We should have a bit more on the new menu in next week's Noshing Around column.
