East Side ShowRoom Restaurant Review

: Nourishment is not exclusive to gastronomic intake. Appropriately, East Side ShowRoom caters to all your senses with verve. The exposed brick of the 1901 structure holds an eclectic and ever-changing art collection; in fact, the skillful craft of the co-owner/metal sculptor, Mickie Danae Spencer, is evident everywhere. Gypsy jazz bands play while black and white silent movies cement the immersion in the pre-War era’s exuberance. Even with all the stimulation, the food still rises to take center stage. The share-plates menu may include snapper crudo with green apple and Thai chili, and quail complemented by buttermilk grits and pickled vegetables. The voluminous cocktail menu is equal parts science and art. Syrups, infusions, tinctures and preserves are made in-house.
