To drink or not to drink, that is the question. Playwright Tavern encourages the former action by setting the stage with a diverse cast of draft and bottled beers, single malt scotches, small batch bourbons, ports and wines. Dimly-lit, wood-paneled bar rooms host scenes—surprisingly neighborly, considering the tourist-saturated locations—of mostly-male sports fans who chat collegially in front of TVs. Barren, adjoining dining areas, decorated with framed photos and paintings of racehorses and playwrights, offer mid-priced Irish, American, and Continental cuisine, such as salads, sandwiches, daily specials, and entrees like corned beef and cabbage or shepherd's pie.
