Been away for a while from the forum for a variety of reasons …
Thought I’d report on last week’s Covid-compliant visit to Toronado and Berliner Berliner.
Ah, Toronado, the beloved destination for people who love beer and surly, gruff bartenders. I’m happy to note they are serving their lovely brews again in two “parklets” that are now the new norm for a number of bars/eateries.
In order to drink beer in the parklet, you have to order food from Berliner Berliner as well. Not a problem, I think the place rocks, a worthy successor to the hey days of Rosamunde.
I had a fall version of Death and Taxes, and a pint of Pliny the Elder, along with a spicy lamb sausage sandwich, came with little home-pickled jalapenos and sweet peppers too.
The MO is a bit strange when you order. The chap at the counter retains your ID, hands you a chair after you place your order. The menu for both the bar and the brat place is online and pasted outside the bar. A former shadow of the raucous place Toronado was, but there you have it. When you pay your tab, you can return your chair and your glasses, if you so desire. Cash only, as ever.
