Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar
Luxury eh? I was somewhat skeptical & actually scoffed at the name of the place, but I was pleasantly surprised with the meal. It was my birthday & I was hankering for some raw seafood, so we (Myself, Alesha, Mom & Jacob) headed to Jack's @ 101 2nd Avenue (which used to be Jewel Bako Makimono).
The space is well designed, minimalistic yet swanky. The service was excellent; I was late for my birthday party @ Von, so we stressed that we were in a rush - the food came out lickety-split.
While not as good as Balthazar, the raw selection was excellent & more moderately priced. I recommend Jack's - 2 thumbs up!
