Recently, Holly, Harry and me went along to the new Jackson & Rye restaurant in Richmond, and, we went on a Tuesday school night as a special treat for Harry to reward him for a very good school report, clever dude! Having heard mixed things about their Wardour Street branch I decided to go and see what it was all about for myself.

Jackson & Rye

As the Richmond branch has just opened we availed ourselves of a 50% discount we were sent and to be honest I’m glad we did, because it was a bit of a mixed bag as far as the food was concerned. We were met by very friendly staff and asked if we would like a cosy booth or a table in the main area, we chose the booth. No expense has been spared on the refurb and it is reminiscent of one of those upper west side NYC restaurants, plush booths, low lights, well stocked bar and welcoming atmosphere, sort of.

Menu has the usual fayre you would expect to see on an American leaning bill with starter offerings such as  Hot Shrimp and Grits, (don’t really get grits on an evening menu as they are usually eaten at breakfast in the states) but they do go well with shrimp, Roasted Sea Scallops and Tuna Tartare. Mains included, J&R Cheeseburger, Crispy Crab Cakes and a selection of Steaks.

We decided since we had the discount to go BIG so Harry had Popcorn to start, followed by the Burger and Marshmallows for pudding, He gave the burger 8/10, I had Crab and Avocado salad to start, I know it’s served cold, but it was mega cold, as if the whole thing had been sitting on the plate, on a shelf in a fridge along with others waiting it’s turn for the table, it was so cold that I could barely taste anything and it arrived with 3 minutes of ordering now that’s pretty fast!

My main was Steak and Eggs, now not sure where the steaks come from but it certainly isn’t from my local butcher, as it didn’t have any of that aged flavour you get from great meat. I had cheesecake for pudding. Holly went for the grits, followed by the Crab Cakes which she pronounced not bad with a good sauce.

Washed down by a Rye for me and white wine for Holly, Harry had the house lemonade.

Without doubt, the best part were the puddings they were really, really good and service excellent.

So all in all not an unpleasant experience at £65 (remember this was 50% off) not sure if I would have be too happy to pay the full amount in the future. After our 3 courses, we needed that walk home!

Harry Good News: Burger was nice and juicy

Avoca Café

Avoca Café, Suffolk Street Dublin 4 Ireland

Every time I go home to visit my mum and sister in Dublin we always find time to visit Avoca. Perched on the top floor of a haberdashers in busy Suffolk Street and a stones throw from the popular Grafton Street, Avoca never fails to impress. Usually full of an eclectic group of Dubliners and better informed tourists you usually get a seat within 15 minutes and then you won’t want to leave.

Using the very best of Irish ingredients the chefs prepare everything from  a traditional Irish breakfast, the best you’ll eat in Ireland, to a lunch menu comprising such delights as Castletownbere crab salad with apple, fennel, pickled cucumber, a Middle Eastern mezze of spicy minced Wicklow lamb, hummus, tabbouleh, baba ghanouj, beetroot tzatziki & pita and Confit duck leg salad with pears & blackberries, feta, mixed leaves & blackberry vinaigrette.
