Square Meal Review of Jackson & Rye Wardour Street ?

Following the success of Grillshack on Beak Street, Richard Caring of Caprice Holdings (J Sheekey, 34, Scott’s) put his money on another Soho venture with the same team headed by executive chef Mark Askew. With its frosted glass panels, slowly whirring ceiling fans, tiled floors and marble-topped counter, Jackson & Rye offers an informal all-day menu and a casual vibe inspired by America’s East Coast: breakfasts of creamed grits, ‘milk and cookies’, slab-bacon sandwiches and eggs every which way precede truffled mac ‘n’ cheese, chopped salads, prime steaks, Cajun salmon, meatballs ‘in red sauce’ and blueberry cobbler. Daytime ‘blue plate’ specials such as ‘ice-box salad’ or blackened red snapper are excellent-value, while service is charmingly old-fashioned – in a “slow” way. The adjoining Jackson & Rye Bar dispenses appropriate US cocktails, rye whiskeys, hard shakes and the like.

    The Insatiable Eater :: Jackson + Rye: stick to brunch

    've been to JR twice now - once for brunch before Christmas and again for dinner this week. Based on what I've eaten I'd probably stick to brunch. I'm quite fussy with scrambled eggs and can think of nothing worse than dry, overcooked, lumpy ones. I requested runny eggs at JR and got exactly that with the oddly named Prison Eggs (which don't seem to be on the website menu anymore, although saying that, the all day menu lists the buttermilk chicken served with both a spicy coleslaw AND fries but actually you have to order the fries separately). My eggs were mixed with jalapeños, borlotti beans and spring onions giving...

  1. From the team behind Grillshack comes Jackson + Rye, the latest American diner-style restaurant to hit Soho. There are so many cool restaurants and bars on Wardour street, and J + R fits in nicely with the edgy vibe.

    When I arrived, I was pleased to see the place packed out. The design is 'New York' style with free standing tables as well as banquettes. It is also much bigger than you may think at first, extending into a large back room and a downstairs...

    The Hungry Porker :: Jackson + Rye

    As if Soho wasn’t already over-saturated with all-day American diners, now Jackson + Rye has come along; and as so many of the reviews say, it offers a real slice of New York. Whatever the hell that means. Just what slice of New York that is, I do not know...

  1. A lunch time catch up and off we went to Jackson & Rye in Soho. On the corner of wardour street and old Compton road, this Anerican diner/ bistro of sorts comes to life with its wide variety of dishes. My visit here comprised of mac'n'cheese, lobster and fried buttermilk chicken. How do you describe that as a food category?

    To start with I was able to share with my friend the truffled mac'n'cheese and 1/2 lobster. A good match and if they wanted to merge the two together then even better. The lobster came out with all he necessary equipment to prize all the meat from the lobster. It was tasty and squeezed...

    Dancing In High Heels :: BRUNCH AT JACKSON & RYE

    Thanks again to my unexpected stroke of luck, I managed to win brunch on the house at Jackson & Rye.This was my second visit here since they opened last month, and it looked like it has become much busier since then. We were sat in quite a dimly lit corner before I requested to be moved to a brighter table along the sofas which was also more spacious.There was a moment of confusion with one of the waitresses when I was trying to explain to her about my 'Brunch on the House' booking - I would have expected it to have been noted on my reservation.Instead she just blankly stared at me like I was talking gibberish, and...

    laymytable :: Jackson + Rye

    We’ve been over this. Time and time again. The New York movement is upon us. Some of them work, some of them don’t. So, I read a great deal about the opening of Jackson + Rye and wanting to wait until the soft launch had passed and all the Christmas cheer, I held off. It is marketed as a New York brunch establishment. Of course most, if not all, New York brunch restaurants are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner also. This is no exception. But what it really stands for is the brunch. Much like Mogador, Extra Virgin & Cornelia, to name but a few in Manhattan, its strengths lie in that delightful time between breakfast...

  1. Given the number of early risers and night owls in London, there are surprisingly few breakfast spots worth seeking out and even fewer late night diners. A restaurant that combines both is rarer still. Jackson + Rye on Soho’s Wardour Street opens at 08.00 for breakfast and closes at around midnight-ish. While these opening hours won’t impress ever-restless New Yorkers, they’re notable for London.

    Situated inside the premises formerly occupied by Satsuma, Jackson + Rye is split over two floors and is nothing if not a handsome place. The booths, tiles, dark wood panelling and moody lamp lighting aren’t exactly...

  1. Jackson + Rye have taken over the space with an all-day East-Coast inspired restaurant, headed up by executive chef Mark Askew. The restaurant is backed by Richard Caring and the people behind the recently opened Grillshack - Mark Askew and Hannah Bass. Upon first glance, the plush decor struck us as very Soho Kitchen & Bar, although the designers are the same people from behind the Dean Street Townhouse. This is a super sleek US brasserie with a warm, cosy atmosphere and the gentle background buzz from the bustling crowd. Jackson + Rye‘s clever use of soft glowing lighting and heavy iron pipework shelving are nice...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Jackson & Rye

    Jackson & Rye is the latest Richard Caring backed restaurant and it’s the creation of the guys behind Grill Shack – which I loved. This too is an all day dining affair – it’s open 7 days a week from breakfast to late night dinner offering American comfort food. As that sounds right up my street I was super excited to be invited along for brunch...

    The Frying Pan Diaries :: Jackson and Rye, Soho

    We wandered over to Wardour Street and at a quick glance of the menu Ben was convinced.

    We ducked into a fairly small room that had a fair few people in it considering it was pretty early Monday morning. Both big and small tables and a lovely bar along one wall.

    It was a really cosy feel. I popped off to the loo and was delighted to discover how big the place was. There was another room behind the bar, with similar saloon sort of feel to it...

  1. Last night I headed off to the soft launch, or even pre-soft launch, at Jackson & Rye, a new bar/restaurant in the middle of Soho. With the influence of the owner of Grillshack, Jackson & Rye is a New York-style venue with a 1920s flavour.

    It was very much still in its training stages last night. However, if last night was anything to go by (and I hope it was) and they manage to maintain the excellent standards on display when they open fully, Jackson & Rye will be a contender for my favourite Soho haunt...
