Jacobs on the Mall
Jacobs on the Mall Review
Imaginative cooking is one attraction; the other is the location—an erstwhile Victorian-style Turkish bath. The dining room has a high ceiling, an enormous skylight, cast-iron pillars, modern art, and a tall banquette room divider. Starters include salt-and-pepper squid in a Thai-chili mayonnaise, and oysters with ginger-and-lime relish. For a main course, try the seared John Dory with coconut rice, or breast of free-range duck with sweet potato and pancetta gratin. The desserts include date-and-butterscotch pudding with fudge sauce and vanilla ice cream.
