East Side ShowRoom Restaurant Review: Nourishment is not exclusive to gastronomic intake. Appropriately, East Side ShowRoom caters to all of 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 takes center stage. The share-plates menu might include mussels in Creole red sauce; cannelloni with house-made ricotta, crab and crawfish; or oysters on the half shell with Pernod mignonette. The voluminous cocktail menu is equal parts science and art. Syrups, infusions, tinctures and preserves are made in-house to augment the craft drinks developed from a selection of nearly 200 liquors.
