Visiting Jacob's Pickles on the UWS
My team decided to go to dinner together last week at Jacob's Pickles on the Upper West Side. I don't go to the UWS as often as I should - there is a wealth of incredible bars and restaurants. I'm glad I got the opportunity to go and bond more with my group!
This spot doesn't carry many of the brands my company owns, so I had to go with Tito's in my Pickled Martini. This was a simple cocktail made with vodka, Dirty Dill Pickle Brine and pickled green beans. The first half was great while the second half got a bit too picklely for me!
We started with some appetizers - one of the many perks of dining with a group! The pickles were fantastic and so were the fries.
Jacob chatted with our table and sent over some fried pickles. I've never had a corn dog but this reminds me of one. The coating was light and fluffy and not drenched in oil. If you have a chance to speak to the owner, go for it: he is awesome!
Out of all the entrees we split, I LOVED the Chicken & Pancakes. It was a knock-out dish. If you're going for a healthy option, don't get the salad - just don't come here! To enjoy the food, you need to indulge a bit...or a lot! The salads were tasty but a bit heavy handed on the dressings. The chicken sandwich was yummy with PLENTY of pickles! The mac and cheese was ENORMOUS. Just ridiculously sized. I wanted to try it but was too full from all the pancakes!
This is an AWESOME spot. I didn't even look to see if they have dessert since I couldn't physically move. I had to roll out of there. I imagine whatever is on any menu is delicious here! Also, there is outdoor seating!
