    As a foodie, I give props where it's due and Playground has earned the honour of my very first review on MP. Arrive with good friends who can carry a note or get drunk trying, an empty stomach and cash, but don't worry you won't break the bank. The space is cozy and decor reminded me of mom and pop longing for Thailand while embracing NY. The staff was attentive and knew their menu well. They helped me avoid items based on my food allergies. All our food was made fresh to order, served family style as per our request and in a timely fashion. I got to watch MotoGP on their flat screen while enjoying my grilled squid. My seafood soup had the perfect balance of heat and flavor. We never had to ask for our water to be refreshed. When our server sat to eat her meal, an older gentleman took over and was very kind and humble. We talked food, motorcycles and karaoke, he professed he had found a way to indulge in all three regularly. On my third visit I found out he's the owner, pretty sweet. When a large group arrived, he asked to move us over and offered us drinks and dessert to make up for the move. When the Thai group next to us ordered fried crickets, they offered us a taste. I most politely declined, maybe next time. We all know that unofficial stamp of authenticity based on the Native to Other ratio and Playground has a great balance of both. Regardless of how many Natives dined along side our party, we were never rushed and received the same consistent service. I can't wait to visit the Playground again
