Promised Jeanty Report From Transplanted 9er Fan

Went to Jeanty at Jack's Sunday night and I believe that the restaurant lived up to all of it's great reviews. Had a good martini to start. That gave me time to once over the decor which I found relaxing and not overdone. The wife and I then split an order of Steak Tartare with pomme frites. Possibly one of the best I've ever had. I do, however wish they would mix the egg in to the overall mixture. My wife will eat the raw egg but not if she has to add it. Delicious but overkill quantity on the pommes frites. My wife just wanted the tomato soup with puff pastry cover for her main course. It was as wonderful as it was when I had it in Napa. I really wanted to go for the cassoulet but the special that night was coq a vin. I succumbed to the special because I had not had coq in such a long time. It was perfectly cooked, with potatoes, lardons etc. I would definitely take a special person there for an occasion although it was not really pricey. Romantics to the second floor and those who want a bistro feeling stay on the first. Is the third floor even used?
I would like to report on another place as well. On Kearney between Merchant and I believe Commercial is a hole in the wall Chinese noodle house called Hon's Wun Tun House. Have been wanting to go there for the last three years. I was not disappointed. A good size bowl of Shrimp dumplings and noodles served in a tasty broth (enhanced with chili sauce and soy sauce) was just great and a whopping $4.12 with tax for the repast.
And now a question. Where in the Ferry Building is the Hog Island Oyster Bar?
Enjoyed the City as always. Sure as heck beat the heat in Los Angeles.
