My friend and I were catching a show at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts and we wanted to grab a nice dinner nearby. After some research, we found East Thirty-Six just recently opened in the area and we decided to try it out.
It looked like a feast for the eyes! The dish was plated beautifully and it looked really appetizing.
So...there wasn't a lot of razor clams - the abundance of stuff on the razor clams shells turned out to be more vegetables than clam meat. It was nice and refreshing with the citrus and mint, but not particularly filling.
Duck Confit with duck egg, maitaki and pecorino semolina $19
Shortrib with parmesan grits, brussel sprouts, horseradish $21
The shortrib was an interesting dish - I'm not too sure I liked the grits with the horseradish and brussel sprout combination. It also wasn't a particularly filling combination either (and it was a little on the pricey side considering the portion).
Overall: The atmosphere and interior of the restaurant was nice and the menu looked interesting, but the food was a little disappointing and pricey.
