Jrdn Restaurant--Towe 23, Pacific Beach

El Chevere | | Jun 23, 2006 01:17 AM

Just got back from Jrdn, where I had another very good meal. Overall, the food quality and ambience is very good. I have read where others have had service issues, but what do you expect from a 20 something wait staff that turns over quite a bit. I ate at the bar and had the flat iron steak with fries which is an absolute steal for $14 (same meal cost me $30 at the other hot spot at the moment, Modus). The steak was prepared perfectly and did not have one ounce of fat on it. (I have also had the same meal at another perennial board favorite, Cafe Chloe, which also costs a bit more and has some fat in the meat). This same meal ordered off the regular dinner menu is a bit more (recently raised to $21) but it includes 2 large sides. My suggestion is to dine here Sunday-Thursday (weekends are out as the place is overly crowded). If you go these other 5 nights you will get a great meal with better service and the food is reasonably priced for quality of food and portion size.

I understand the owner is also opening a brand new Latin themed restaurant in La Jolla (where Moondoggie's used to be) within the next 4-6 weeks. Look forward to it--will definitely not be another Gringos--much better, from what I hear.
