Jackson’s Bar and Oven

Today our adventure brought us to Jackson’s Bar and Oven. It’s a casual, upscale dining experience. Besides the usual restaurant ambiance it has a kick ass kitchen bar and wood fire oven for extra yumminess.

My cocktail of choice today was ‘Kicked in the Nutmeg’. It’s a glorious Eagle Rare Bourbon & Disaronno Amaretto drink with orange juice, cinnamon syrup, lemon juice, and Nutmeg. WOW! It is citrus and warm spice, clean and tangy sweet on the palate. This is a delicious drink, so much so I had 2.

For my starter I had an order of the Oysters. I was super impressed with both sauces. The Shallot Mignonette sauce had a hint of jalapeño, surprising me, but in a happy tasted bud way. The Cocktail sauce also had a nice surprise with a hint of horseradish. Sooooo yum. I order Oysters a lot and I must say these 2 sauce are fantastic.

For my main course I ordered the Reuben. I have had this sandwich before, it’s just so good, I had to have it again. The bread had a nice toast to it. The flavor was well balanced I could taste every ingredient. The amount of meat on this sandwich is crazy! Just sooo much meat, and oh so yummy. I was super happy to have this sandwich again. Next time I promise to order something different, not because this sandwich is ungood, quite the opposite. It’s just if I don’t make this promise now, I know I will reorder it. It is just that good.
