Jar Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Suzanne Tracht keeps dishes on the lighter side, for a steakhouse, that is, at this California-conscious sort of place. But everything on the menu certainly qualifies for the comfort food category. Vegetables and starters change with the seasons; we like the autumn menu's heirloom tomato salad with green mango. The main event is robust all-year-round with a variety of fish and meats from the broiler and the roasting pan. If you're looking for hearty fare, roasts, from lamb shank falling off the bone to the pot roast that cuts like butter, this is where the kitchen excels. Lemon grass chicken with kaffir lime leaf has a lighter touch. We never pass up the skirt steak and enjoy the Mozzarella Monday small plates menu with wines to match. All side dishes are served à la carte, making it fun to mix-and-match. A growing and interesting wine list is enhanced by a selection of specialty drinks like Sidecars and mint juleps, resurrected from an era when the steakhouse reigned supreme.
