A great start at this Mediterranean style bistro is choosing a drink from the wide selection of healthy smoothies made from fresh fruit and vegetables or make selection from their extensive espresso bar. Each drink is made fresh to order. The menu consists of hot entrees, salads, pitas, and wraps, as well as gourmet sandwiches, and a full breakfast menu. Mediterranean classics permeate the menu with dishes like: falafel, hummus, tabouli. There are also traditional favorites like grilled Reuben and a long list of salads. After your meal at Jackie’s you can take a stroll in this quaint little neighborhood on Valley Road and visit the shops and theatre.
Intrigued by the sign alone (just what constitutes a “grillette”), and in no particular hurry on a lazy shopping stroll through this quaint little neighborhood on Valley Road, JACKIE’S proved to be the ideal place to be. After seeing a film at the Tudor-style Bellevue Theatre(which looks like it could be in a village in Britain), and a ‘window-shop’ through kitchen-and-chef-inspired Williams-Sonoma, a ‘grillette’ sounded just right. Starting with a fresh ‘made-to-order’ healthy “Smoothie”, and a well-deserved “Iced Latte”, we searched the extensive menu. Hot Entrees, Salads, Pitas, and Wraps, as well as Gourmet Sandwiches, made choosing difficult. Mediterranean dishes permeate the menu, with names like “Falafel”, “Hummus”, and “Tabouli” , and are mixed in with traditional favorites like “Grilled Reuben” and a long list of Salads (Cobb, Caesar, Chef, and Greek).
