Jackson 20 Restaurant Review

: Flashy and named to memorialize Southern President Andrew Jackson, Jackson 20 puts forth a Southern and all-American menu that draws diners in with its promise. The fried chicken is some of the best we’ve had in the area---soaked in buttermilk and bearing a crunchy crust that will make you sigh. It’s served with mashed potatoes and kale for a true comfort meal. Start with an order of crab cakes with jumbo lump crab meat or the shrimp and crawfish bisque, a rich brew filled with plenty of seafood. While you dabble at the beginnings, you’ll be treated to plump and sweet corn muffins, and the thoughtful waitstaff will keep filling the bread basket. Don’t overdo it, because you’ll need to get through to dessert. If you’re lucky, you’ll find the sweet potato bread pudding with a butterscotch-bourbon sauce or the buttermilk pie with huckleberry sauce, though it’s apt to be seasonal. Either way, a Jackson 20 meal is yours at any time of the day, since the kitchen rolls out its Southern-style food starting at breakfast, when you can have buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy.
