Worse than the meager portions were the FLIES swarming around in the restaurant & inside the kitchen all over plexiglas partition separating the food prep area from diners! (Maybe the bar booze keeps regulars from seeing this infestation.) And don't even think of using the grossly odorous "restroom" separated from the dining room by a filthy curtain from the 50's! Only safe place must be outside in the summer.

My friends and I all work the the vicinity of Union Square and we had been looking for a nice local spot to meet up and grab something to "absorb" the drinks we like to imbibe on Thursdays/Fridays. We came upon Jack a little while ago after we spotted them setting up their sidewalk cafe in anticipation for the warm weather. We checked out the menu and BANG! Awesome wine and great food at an unbeatable price. I have to say as a self admitted "jaded" New Yorker could not believe that we had actually found a spot where you didn't have to cash your paycheck early to enjoy a nice meal and drinks. The staff is pretty friendly and cool. Last week we showed up with 6 people and they were like "Not a problem, we'll get you set up right away". The food was damn good, they have this deal where you pick three courses and it's only 20 bucks which is a pretty sweet deal. There's lots of things to choose from too. It's a great spot where you can sit, drink, (possibly spot a celeb or two) and kick back. Thumbs up!

Really great corner for eating outside (or just inside the doorways). Menu is widely varied but familiar/comfortable - the pastas and salads are great. Very friendly service.
