Like I said in my review last Friday, J’s on Jackson, the Old Market’s newest restaurant, does what it does and does it well. Like that Bleu Burger above, that thing was great. And the duck confit below, I liked it, too, and the great service I got, especially behind the bar, where a knowledgeable bartender gave me just what I was looking for in a glass of wine.

The short form: J’s is filling a spot in the Old Market. It’s a locally owned steakhouse serving old fashioned comfort food with a modern twist. It’s welcoming, and I think people of all sorts will like it, too.
