Jake’s Bistro Review — Downtown City of Alachua

Jake’s Bistro
Downtown City of Alachua

What a nice surprise added to the Downtown Cuisine!

For an appetizer we tried the Shrimp and Grits. An awesome combination with a unique sauce and grits with not the usual texture.

For Dinner the Rib Eye Steak was cooked to perfection, and tastefully marbled and tender. The side of glazed baby carrots had a light taste. The glaze did not overpower the carrots and the carrots tasted fresh. Also with that were potatoes, great tasting and all American Style.

The side salad had a nice flavoring and mix, while the key Lime Dessert and coffee had me filled over my ears with simply great tasting food. Prices were moderate, plates large in size and definitely worth it. The shrimp and grits appetizer could make a meal in it’s self!IMG_7252
