Back in November 2022, Playground reopened its doors to downtown visitors with a new executive chef, new menu items, and revamped indoor and outdoor seating. Now, they're diving back into the Brunch department on Sundays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
One of the notable changes for Playground's crew is that the kitchen doubled in size since it's been open again. The new space has really opened up opportunities for new cocktails, dishes, and now Brunch.
Speaking of which, the Brunch menu is something many can enjoy, whether it be the early risers or those waking up from partying at Playground the evening before. They'll have bottomless mimosas, drink specials, music from a live DJ, and the rooftop will be open.
Some of the standout dishes include Chicken and Waffle Cone (fried chicken strips, Sriracha honey, and a bacon-rimmed waffle cone) and the Sonoran AM Corndog, which comes with scrambled eggs, a bacon-wrapped beef hot dog in green chili batter, avocado cream, and chipotle cream.
Then there's the Unicorn Pancake Skewer. This meal is for anyone but especially intriguing to those who may have spent hours playing Dungeons & Dragons the night before. This petite pancake stack is loaded with maple whipped cream and Fruity Pebbles — consider your sweet tooth satisfied.
And again, the Brunch menu will only be available on Sundays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
The weekly hours of operation are 4 - 10 p.m. on Wednesday, 4 p.m. - 2 a.m. on Thursday - Saturday, brunch from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. and dinner from 4 - 10 p.m. on Sunday, and closed Monday and Tuesday.
