The Grilled Artichokes are amazing. Â It's like what dreams are made of. Hands down the best I've ever had.
It's a very nice place; however, it is very pricey for lunch. Â Most food items start at $12 and can go up to almost $30. Â The parking lot is rough too, as it backs up to a Krispy Kreme who puts signs on all of their own reserved parking. Â We happened to go on a day when it was raining and had to park clear in the back of the restaurant [only one entrance in the front] so that kind of sucked.
Mom and I also ordered the grilled steak tacos [$16] with black beans and rice. Â The steak tacos for me, were just OK, but the black beans and rice were PHENOMENAL!!! Â I could've eaten that and the artichokes and been done with it. Â We also ordered a Caesar salad to share, again, too small for me especially for it's $11 price...nothing much to it.
Now their pressed coffee is something to write home about. They bring your own pressing pot and it's damn good!
I'd go back...especially for the Artichokes
I thought this place was solid. I like places that have a nice energy, are upscale without being pretentious and serve great food. J. Alexander's fit that bill. Maybe it was a bit pricey, but I walked away feeling satisfied.
I thought their house salad was excellent, and I'm not one to gush over salads. I ordered the New York Strip with mac & cheese... the steak was terrific, and the mac & cheese was the highlight.
