Jack & Nellie’s in Forest Hills, Queens, NY – What a Great Find. Upscale, Modern, and Fabulous Food

This is a great find! Jack & Nellie’s in Forest Hills, Queens, NY is a wine/beer bar that serves small and large plates of delicious new American cuisine. Although some site calls it mediterranean, I feel that the menu is new American. I was recently there having a quick dinner with a friend. I got there early and was burning with hunger. I immediately ordered: Pate Charcuterie, Chevre D’ Argental Fromage (France soft, creamy & pasteurized goat cheese) and the Lamb Meatballs Over Cauliflower Puree.

The lamb meatballs were so good that I forgot to photograph it. The cauliflower puree was masquerading as potato mash but was so much healthier and lighter in texture. The center of the meatballs were so juicy that I almost did not want to share.


Pate charcuterie, Chevre D’ Argental fromage, with chornichons, pickled pearl onions, Granny Smith’s apple slices, grapes, olives and spicy sauce. In addition to all these wonderful goodness that made my mouth water, the baguette was very decent for the French standards.


Chocolate Mousse Cake: So much better than anticipated. Very worthy of the calories. It had the perfect mouse density, chocolaty but not too sweet. It was still cake like and the whip cream’s sugar sweetness significantly enhanced the darkness of the chocolate. Every component worked well together. I later found out that this is one of their best desserts.

There is only one down side – they should have a better web site.  Their menu is not on their web site but on menopause.com.  Further, there is no content on their site.  Guys – it can be done very easily.  Do it today.

Will return again and again. The decor was new American bistro. Modern and upscale.  Happy that I went.
