Jackson + Rye

Jackson and Rye - Around room seating copyJackson + Rye brings a taste of New York across the pond and onto the banks of the Thames with the opening of their new all-American restaurant, café and bar in Richmond. Head chef Akshay Sabharwal delivers an exciting Stateside menu to the people of West London.

Inspired  by  1920s  Brooklyn  bars  and  Manhattan  speakeasies,  the  stunning  space exudes a moody sophistication with deep olive banquette seating  and sage leather bar stools.  Soft gold touches of hanging  pendant  lights  and  quirky  desktop  lamps  glisten  in  the  suitably  situated mirrors which complement the dark wood paneling on the walls. Stateside signatures,  cool  cocktails  and rare ryes,  a  taste of New York has opened in Richmond.

Richmond Bar shotThe SLOAN! Review

“Authentic food, music and atmosphere made for a superb evening. Friendly staff made this restaurant an absolute pleasure to review. It was easy to forget your surroundings and feel whisked away to the other side of the pond. The menu reflects both East and West Coast influences and for those who know their rye you have a nice selection to whet your appetite. A varied choice of starters followed by a classic selection of steaks, burgers and some well thought out dishes. If you have room I definitely recommend the chocolate sundae with the surprise popping candy or the Pecan Pie,  both hit just the right spot.

For those on a diet they have a health conscious section of the menu as well. I noted that there was a superfood green salad and also some healthy juices including an avocado concoction which looked brimming with goodness.

What also impressed me about the  restaurant is that for a fellow customer who had phoned in advance Jackson + Rye  went and got a tomato soup and gluten free ingredients to accommodate the strict dietary requirements put before them.

An absolute must whether you are on a date, dining with family, catching up with friends or even having a business meeting. A hidden gem in Heron Square tucked behind the hustle and bustle of Richmond. The location is absolutely divine you can have a beautiful view of the river and in the summertime they are hoping to get outside seating making this the place to be in Richmond.”

Here is a sample of the delectable delights that tantalised our taste buds.
