Jackson and Rye

Jackson and Rye in Soho is well worth checking out. I had a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich and a Manhattan Rye - sometimes a girl just needs fried chicken and a stiff cocktail.

The vibe is very old school New York elegance - they even have 'Red Snappers' on the cocktail menu which I thought were a relic of old movies. There is a huge bar which is back-lit with gold lights and the uniformed bar-staff who busy themselves shaking up ice cold Old Fashioned(s). The ceilings are high, the music is jazzy and the floor tiles are chic. And the hallmark of any place worth its salt - wonderful Aesop soap in the bathrooms.

Well worth a visit. It made me think of Doris Day in 'Pillow Talk'
