Review on Jackson & Rye
Jackson & Rye opened in December 2013 well-positioned on the corner of Wardour and Old Compton Street, it's an exciting addition to Soho originally backed by entrepreneur Richard Caring of Caprice Holdings, it was sold to casual dining chain Côte in January 2016. Designed by the renowned designer Martin Brudnizki the sultry interiors aim to emulate the ambience of a 1920's Manhattan speakeasy with tiled floors, ceiling fans, a wall of sparkling amber rye, timber chairs and tables topped with green marmoleum. Illustrator, Bjorn Rune Lie was commissioned to create the vintage style menus and coasters, together with the gold leaf signage on the windows.
The restaurant is an all day dining affair with dishes inspired by America's East Coast, it's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or you can just pop in for a coffee or cocktail. Expect classic dishes in the shape of shrimp and grits followed by a main course of prime cut grass fed beef fillet or chargrilled lobster with smoked garlic butter and fries. Desserts are wickedly indulgent creations like peanut butter cookies, milk ice cream and chocolate sauce or a melting chocolate sundae with butterscotch sauce.
The wine list has a good spread from all the major wine growing regions and there's American cocktails and beers and of course an extensive selection of Rye. Jackson & Rye has now opened offshoots in Chiswick, West London and Richmond, Surrey.
