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 pickled deviled eggs, cassoulet, mussels with house-cured bacon, and a smoked turkey leg with slow-roasted Bavarian sauerkraut. The voluminous cocktail menu is equal parts science and art. Syrups, infusions, tinctures and preserves are made in-house.
