Discover Eastside

The Eastside is home to an amazing variety of cuisines with a great selection of delicious restaurants, cozy cafes, and exciting bars. Start your food adventure by trying an appetizing local shellfish dish at one of the steak, seafood, French, or Northwestern establishments. Taste one of the local elk, boar, or veal dishes at any number of the inviting contemporary American restaurants or steakhouses. Many dishes at the American, Italian, steak, and seafood eateries use the area’s wild mushrooms in a variety of dishes. These would be a great meal option if you wanted to get a taste of the area favorite. The Eastside region is also known for its local craft beer, which can be found in any of the restaurants in this charming suburb.
