  • Cue the small plates menu

  • I had dinner there once and brunch once shortly after it opened, and both were outstanding. Never made it back, though. If I remember correctly, it was very expensive.

  • BOOOO!!!~ If you make it try the chicken sandwich with goat cheese and fig or the tuna burger or the steak. See how sad I am….

  • J&G was a lovely space, but I don’t remember anything being much of a standout. At those prices, I expect to be really impressed by the food, and I was not.

  • And Mrs. a-Wiggins will be waiting tables.

  • How in gods name at those prices can a place not stay in business. I mean, for gods sake, they only had to sell one steak a day to pay the bills!

    Having said that, the food was damn fine, so if they can’t make it, who can?

  • had a FANTASTIC birthday dinner there once, but too expensive to go regularly. Sad to see it go.
