Guests will delight in its meat and vegetarian menus, warm ambiance, and attentive service. Chef Eamonn McParland’s prepares seasonal, contemporary meals that pair well with Two Hearted Ale, Irish Cider, and Yuengling.
East Bank Emporium
In 1912, Chris Anwonder opened the first tavern in the Emporium’s building. It later became a porcelain works, tombstone factory, and a sign company before again becoming a restaurant in 1980. The East Bank Emporium features paneling made from a grand staircase and oak doors from an old church, as well as the building’s original light fixtures, spindles, and oak columns. The overall effect is much like stepping back in time. The large windows provide picturesque views of the city, and the menu includes all-natural regionally sourced pork and beef. There’s plenty of beer to choose from too, and the wait staff will provide you with the most current list.
