Fodor's Expert Review parkside

$$ Sixth Street District Modern American

A gem in the midst of Dirty Sixth, parkside’s austere interior features exposed brick walls, shotgun bar, and bare light bulbs suspended by black cables. Celebrated chef Shawn Cirkiel has created an equally simple menu, but delivers on taste with fresh oysters and ceviche-style offerings from the raw bar, in addition to a meat-centric array of bone marrow appetizers, savory grilled lamb, and shareable portions of steak and (perfectly crisped) fries. Floor to ceiling windows look onto 6th Street for ideal people watching while lingering over desserts like homemade doughnuts, served warm and sugar-dusted in paper sacks. Dinner can be pricey, but the daily happy hour (5:30–7) is one of the best bargains in the city.
