Jacob’s Pickles NYC
Jacob’s Pickles is the bomb diggity. Did I just show my age there? Both food and cocktail there are delicious and comforting. I don’t think I’ve had a dish there that I didn’t enjoy. I would have had more pictures to show, but I went once at nighttime, so the images are just so dark and not worth it.
I could actually go for some Jacob’s Pickles right now, but I guess I can always for some.
Sausage Gravy Smothered Chicken Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich: Well, howdy gorgeous. This enormous plate of food will have you salivated at first look. I included a bad picture, because it’s fried chicken, biscuit and a ton of wonderful gravy. I prefer dark meat, but they were really able to keep the white meat of this dish moist.
Macaroni And Cheese: The side dish was plenty for sharing, especially since we usually get other items. Cheesy and satisfying.
Everything Biscuits: I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got this dish, but basically, it was a play on the everything bagel, just in biscuit form. And it came with three butters: Apricot and parsley (eh, not my favorite), sundried tomato and spinach butter (delicious, reminded me of a cream cheese because of its consistency), and a bone marrow and lemon zest butter (enjoyed this, but maybe because in my head I saw the words bone marrow). I really hope that in the future they include actually bone marrow with their biscuits. That would be right up my alley.
St. Louis Ribs With Coffee Molasses BBQ Sauce, German Style Potato Salad, Pickle Slaw, Buttermilk Biscuit: For a rib dish that doesn’t come from a BBQ joint, this was very tasty. It didn’t taste like it was smoked, and I’m not sure if it was parboiled. Maybe they just cooked it for a while in an oven? Full of flavor and so tender. If you’re not in a fried chicken mood, this is a great alternative.
