To our patrons: We are reopening on Tuesday, June 9th. Looking forward to seeing you soon! — Team Sidecar
Sidecar, partly named after the mixed drink that features Cognac, a fine French brandy, offers a list of old-world inspired luxury cocktails, fine European wines, rare whiskeys and more than a dozen imported beers and ciders.
The food menu features traditional European foods like handmade sausages in traditional German, Polish, and English styles, as well as Belgian hand-cut fries, mussels, steak frites, and Polish pierogies. Fresh seafood abounds along with carefully curated charcuterie and a wonderful rotating selection of small plates.
