Jack's Winter Appetizer Recipe
Wine List Feb. 2013
Although the term "grill" evokes images of fried burgers and tuna melts, Jack's is a far cry from that characterization. Although not pretentious, the restaurant has a cuisine that absolutely exceeds run-of-the-mill food. The kitchen takes advantage of the season's fresh ingredients, crafting flavorful, well-balanced meals from regional meats and produce. You're likely to find pheasant, Alberta beef, grilled duck, bison and roast lamb. Chicken and seafood are also available, and everything comes with comfort-food sides, like garlic mashed potatoes or butternut squash risotto. Desserts are as good as you'd expect, and the wine list is substantial as well. A long-time favorite and still going strong.
10 Best - Trusted Advice for Travelers
No serious discussion of the Edmonton dining scene could possibly be complete without mention of Jack's Grill. Tucked away in a quiet residential area in the city's south end, near the Southgate Mall, Jack's is a casually elegant restaurant that draw diners from all over the city -- and the country. Its food relies on simple preparation, inventive flavor combinations, and tons of fresh, local ingredients: Try the smoked lamb carpaccio crusted in rosemary with arugula and apple salad and dijon aioli, say, or chili-rubbed grilled beef rib-eye, aged 28 days, with smoked tomato and goat cheese tortellini and creamed spinach. Think of it, perhaps, as haute comfort food -- some of the best you'll find anywhere.
