Tampopo's Reviews
 
Jackie's is an independent American restaurant in downtown Silver Spring serving farm-to-table seasonal cuisine. Located in a converted warehouse, it offers a dramatic and award-winning interior design, food with a distinctively modern flair, and a critically recognized wine selection. Next door is Sidebar, considered one of the top craft cocktail bars in the region.

"It had been a while since our last visit so we decided to try them out while they were running their 50% off bottles of wine for Aug. They were also extending Restaurant Week, though I don't know that's a great deal since they have a regular prix fixe option.
Had the lamb belly which was delicious, though a little small in portion size. Others had duck breast and halibut which were also both very good and portion sizes were more generous. Brussel sprout sides were really good. Also kids meal came with buttered brussel sprouts which contrasted with the menu version.
A little heavy on salt, but chef is definitely settling in with flavor balance. Previously I was critical of him trying to do too much with too many flavors. No longer a prob."

"They forgot one of our appetizers and one of our desserts. At least with the desserts, the other two were brought out ahead of the forgotten one. The other two appetizers sat, one under the heat lamp and the other on a table in the dining area of the bar, while the cooks fired the forgotten appetizer. Took nearly an hour for our appetizers to come out after we sat down. Entrees were the only thing they got right. Took over 2 1/2 hours to complete dinner. Other tables sat down after us and left before us."

"Had sushi tasting course which featured a nice diversity of fish, all of which were great. Among highlights were katsuo, ayu, and otoro. Got additional dishes for the kids such as fresh made tofu and agedashi tofu."
