Fresh perspective on urban grazing!


Six stories high-in-the-sky, this rooftop destination dazzles with stunning views from windowed walls and balconies, and artfully plated dishes provide equally impressive sights—plus enticing aromas. It was a year ago in January that ZEST redefined the casual-chic dining and social scene in the SouthSide Arts District. And it just keeps getting better.


As a sister restaurant of Grille 3501 in Allentown, ZEST features a few “heavy hitters” from the original locale, such as Crispy Chicken Dumplings and Crab & Mango Spring Rolls. However, Executive Chef Justin Cogan brings his own culinary flair to progressive New American cuisine sparked with diverse ethnic flavors. The latest menu debuts include Asian-inspired Crispy Confit Duck Wings and Herb Ricotta Tortelloni laced with bright Mediterranean tastes. Chilean Seabass attracts fans with a mild-and-buttery flavor and satisfying large-flake texture. This entrée comes beautifully accessorized with forbidden rice—a short-grain Chinese black rice seasoned with complex flavors—ginger-braised broccolini, and a round-the-plate drizzle of lime cilantro vinaigrette. Among the appetizers, Australian Lamb Chops grab a lot of attention. Big and meaty—with a pleasant hint of gaminess—these tender “lollipop” chops are paired with chilled purple cauliflower purée and crunchy cucumber jicama slaw. Whatever you select, the well-stocked bar can provide a distinctive cocktail, beer, or wine to pair.
