It's Uptown Kingston, not Woodstock, yet with more to the local counterculture than you're already certain you know: the lunch counter culture, that is. But before you relegate chef Deena Rae Turner's instantly appealing Cafe East --- with its highly original, admirably eclectic "fusion" menu (think "kimchi omelette" or "BCT," a bacon-cilantro-and-tomato sandwich, along with such other temptations as "patatas bravas," "chipotle fish tacos" and a "black forest sausage baguette") --- to just a daytime experience, know that it keeps nighttime hours as well. On Thursdays it's open for its fans from five to ten p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays til midnight. The menu's a bit different --- smaller, with an emphasis on treats that pair well with wine, beer, sake and exotic cocktails --- and the scene's livelier. What's so likable about Cafe East is how personal it feels, on either side of the counter . . . and if you're there it's because you enjoy sharing not just Deena's food but her vision (and her wit), as well. One visit --- as I've found --- is simply an invitation to the next, with many more to look forward to.
