I made an unanticipated stop in at Toyland last night, and found all three of the owners on site. It turned out they were starting the roll out of some dishes from the new menu (I'll post it here once it's ready). I tried the veggie sandwich. It was good bar food and comes in a basket with fries. My friends had the burgers, which they enjoyed. We split an appetizer of fried pickles (they don't show up on many menus around here, so we kind of HAD to order them). For those trying to eat right Toyland offers two salads. I was drinking the Loose Cannon draft. It was hoppy, but very drinkable. They had three other taps (something from Brooklyn, possibly a Magic Hat, and another that escapes me for the moment).
If you haven't been in a while, you should stop by again. They've got art on the walls, everything lights up that should, and the place generally has a feel that is neither too stark, nor too busy. Sitting at the table in the left corner, the conversation turned briefly to Frozen Tropics, leading me to remark that Toyland is actually done up in Frozen Tropics colors. That orange, the blue, and the light green on some of the tables. David, one of the owners of Toyland, has never actually seen the site, so he had no idea about the colors. It was a funny moment. I'll have to take my camera next time.
