Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American cuisine and drinks at EastSide Grill, in Macomb.
Nominated for 2010’s Best New American by WDIV Detroit, EastSide Grill reverts famished beasts back into normal, fully feasted humans with a menu of hearty eats and entrees. The Eastside Sampler starts a group gorging off with a gladiator pit of crispy chicken tenders, potato skins, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and chicken quesadillas ($9.99). Those who pass the test progress to a realm where sandwiches and burgers reign supreme, such as the Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue burger, with cheese, bacon, crispy onion straws, a slathering of tangy sauce, and a heaping helping of french fries ($9.29). Turf surfers, meanwhile, will find themselves torn between steak and seafood options such as the pan-seared tilapia, served on rice pilaf with a red-pepper-pesto covering ($10.99), or the apricot-chipotle pork chops ($10.99). A dessert of triple-chocolate Ghirardelli brownies topped with hot fudge and cream ensures you'll stay earthbound during Detroit's next gravity outage ($5.99).
Dinner artists who are either before or after their time can still find nourishment with EastSide Grill's lunch and bar menu, with too many choices to recount in less than Pynchonian fashion, but include nachos, sliders, pizza, and pitas. EastSide Grill's full bar keeps diners libated, and its weekend DJs drown out your brain's incessant car alarm with hands-in-the-air sonic torrents.
