Jack's Bistro Restaurant Review

: With a name that references a seventies sitcom (Three’s Company) and décor that suggests the fifties, one might expect Jack’s Bistro to be playfully eclectic. And one would be right. The Canton restaurant exudes fun and draws patrons with sophisticated takes on American comfort fare, seasoned with ever-changing ethnic elements. Chef-owner Ted Stelzenmuller’s inventiveness can veer into over-the-top wackiness, which occasionally works (yes, macaroni and cheese with chocolate actually tastes good) but sometimes falls flat. If you’re up for experimentation, choices include poutine (french fries with cheese curds and foie gras sauce), various international curries, and a beef-free burger made of ground bacon. The restaurant also offers food prepared sous-vide, and if you’re interested in this cooking method, which simmers ingredients slowly in plastic bags, here’s the place to sample the results. Service is consistently professional, with the attention to detail of a fine-dining place and the friendliness of a neighborhood hangout. Jack’s, to its credit, is both.
