Jackson’s Bistro [Tampa]
Jackson’s Bistro is located in Harbor Island, right on the water. Needless to say, the atmosphere was relaxing and the views were beautiful. Luckily for me there was outside seating! It was really nice outside, so this was the perfect arrangement. The outside seating is arranged like a waterside lounge. It was very sexy and suave. It’s definitely an upscale restaurant.
The server was really nice. He was attentive, and very helpful. He was able to provide recommendations, and answer all of our questions. Our table was clear of dirty dishes, and our glasses remained full.
I ordered the Brick Chicken dinner. It was a 12 oz. soy marinated airline chicken breast grilled under a brick, served with garlic green beans, truffle shoestring fries, and tomato demi sauce. The chicken was so good. It was juicy and marinated just right! Every bite was just as good as the last. The green beans were cooked perfectly. They were neither too soft nor hard; they had the perfect consistency. I was a little taken a back by the fact that this meal was served with fries. However, I won’t complain because the truffle shoestring fries were delicious! Parmesan cheese was added, and that just made my day! I wasn’t a big fan of the tomato demi sauce. I thought it was going to be more like a BBQ sauce, but it reminded me of A1 steak sauce. I also ordered a side salad, it was a good size and priced quite nicely. I also tasted a sushi roll, which was really good and fresh. I’d like to go back for their sushi, especially since this is something they’re known for.
