Fodor's Expert Review James Street South Bar & Grill

$ Central District Irish

Devotees refer to it as JSS, and locally sourced food comes with a magical weave of flavors in this city-center big hitter. Based in a former linen mill, exposed brick walls and leather banquettes set the scene for a terrific appetizer of cured beef with Stilton fritters. Mainstays are steaks—choose from rump, sirloin, rib eye, or beef fillet—and the Comber potato, characterized by their sweet buttery flavor and harvested earlier than other potatoes; May and June are peak months to enjoy them. Such is their importance they have been given a European designation of protection: something that JSS should also have.
