Far from plain, Jane’s formula pairs a simple yet sleek interior with cleverly tweaked but unpretentious American cuisine (case in point: a charred shrimp appetizer cooked in Pilsner beer gets a tableside presentation in a cast iron skillet). It’s a formula that seems to be working—the clamorous interior is almost always packed. The oversize Jane Burger, buried by a mountain of thin French fries, drips with cheddar and double smoked bacon while the toasted ricotta gnocchi swim in a rich white truffle sauce. Entrees like thick, tender hanger steak and seared ahi tuna with a pomegranate glaze are dependably served rare. It’s manna from heaven for the penny-pinching gourmet, as several of the generously sized entrees, including the burger, salmon and pork tenderloin, are only $12 on Sunday nights.

One of my favorite brunch spots in the city, but if you don't get there early or make a reservation, be prepared for a line. I almost always order the Benedict Jane with crab and crawfish, or Benedict Johnny with crispy grits and chicken sausage. Don't fill up on the complimentary bread basket with delicious strawberry butter! (Actually, you should.) Saturday, you'll have to pay for cocktails, but on Sunday, one is complimentary. #Win

My friend raved about their brunch menu so I decided to try their dinner service. Needless to say, I am amazed by the hospitality of Jane.

Particularly the fact that they were very nice about helping my friend switch her drink after she decided that being adventurous hilariously backfired on her.

My appetizer was the Burrata. It was my first time eating burrata ( I think) on a bed of tomatoes and ciabatta. It was pure heaven, cheese was so delicate that I forgot that I had to pair it with tomatoes and the bread. I'd smear that cheese on everything.

The main dish I had was the special - lamb ossobuco. If you're a lamb lover, its a must try. Meat so tender and falling off the bone. Although, whatever was under the lamb - it was this purèe of some sort; I would've liked it more if there was something under that lamb.

Jane is one of those places that you go to feel fancy but you’re not– socially or financially.

This is one of my favorite places for brunch, and have been going for years. The french toast is amazing, but every other dish seems to be spot on too. it is consistently good, and always packed. Make reservations ahead of time for sure..
