A few weeks ago I had the chance to check out the huge new bar and restaurant Jack Rose, located on 18th & U. The space is amazing, with a huge bar and seating area downstairs and a very nice outside bar on the upper level.
Chef Michael Hartzer also gave me a sneak peek of the menu.
I haven’t had the chance to make it back and see the space with people in it, but it’s definitely on my to do list!
