Jack’s Bistro

I may need to update my favorite Happy Hour spots.  Half price bottles of wine EVERY DAY from 5pm – 6pm and they have Trisaetum. Yep.

If that isn’t good enough, they also have $2 off appetizers (and beer, wine, and house cocktails); two of their most well known dishes are on the app menu.

One being the Mac and Cheese with chocolate; a smokey cheese sauce tossed with pasta shells and then with a little dark dark chocolate drizzle.   I can understand why folks might like this, but it’s not really for me.  It’s rich and the chocolate adds a distinct flavor – that dark rich bitterness.  For me, it was missing a little something, maybe a salty or acid component?  I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.

Jack’s also has a Guinness Braised Filet Mignon.  I can never eat that much, so I usually get a taste with the similar app.  The app has slices of the filet in the demi atop the gouda, jalepeño, bacon grits.  I like this better than the mac&cheese.  It kind of hits all the components on the tongue.  The beef is tender.  The sauce is a little sweet and the grits have just enough spice to balance it out.
