East Coast Grill

On paper, the concept must have looked pretty fuzzy: how could the then-unknown Chris Schlesinger possibly pull off a tropically tinged seafood shack/barbecue pit complete with raw bar and tiki lounge? But the disparate elements proved wildly harmonic; 20-plus years on, the chow's still as spicy as the attitude, and the crowd's full of jumping beans.
