This restaurant has delicious food, but be prepared to order several small plated in order to be full. Tapas is meant to be small, but if you are hungry you may want to eat someplace else.

I ordered food to go at Wang's next door. I wanted to sit and have a drink while I was waiting so I went to East which is connected to Wang's. I entered and surprisingly there is a family of 4 - 2 adults and...More

The tapas were inconsistent... some were great (our first order of cheese balls OMG!!), some not so great (our second order of cheese balls... salty and cold). The selection is amazing and portions are decent for the price. Drinks are good when they are served...More

Description
East was first conceived in the fall of 2010 to bring a refreshing change in eating and drinking to East Memphis through an inventive, seasonal small plate menu and signature drink list that blends classic cocktails with some of today's most popular spirits. Stepping through the large antiqued doors one is likely to forget they are in the suburbs of Memphis and rather think they are in a bar tucked away in the streets of Manhattan only know to locals and the lucky out of town guest who stumbles upon it. Our menu and weekly small plate specials are designed to take advantage of the freshest ingredients and are a mix of Asian, American, and Latin flavors that bring comfort and curiosity. At the bar, guests can choose from our wine list that features rotating weekly wine flights, house special cocktails, or our eclectic beer selection. On most Friday evenings, East offers live acoustic music to cap of the work week and begin your weekend the right way. Whether you live right around the corner or are in town for a night, come eat, experience, and enjoy at East.
