Equus & Jack's Lounge Restaurant Review

: Equus, chef Dean Corbett’s original upscale establishment, merged with its casual lounge, Jack’s, to create a series of inviting rooms in which patrons may sip cocktails in the comfort of deep sofas and chairs. Among the small plates are Dean’s Ultimate Nachos, crab cakes and crispy calamari. Mushroom fumé soup is a menu signature item. The Jack’s burger is popular, as is the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and greens. Shrimp Jenkins accents the seafood with a sweet bourbon sauce. In addition to cocktails, there is a thoughtfully chosen wine list and several good craft brews on draught. For dessert, consider the chess cake (similar to a light pound cake) with ice cream. Look out for daily specials, too.
